It's an optional pity perk after you die a bunch of times during a boss battle, shows up when you hit Load Checkpoint after dying a bunch.

Yeah, I read that, but also can unlock at the Fortress of Doom. Guess I didn’t die enough to get it. When you do get it, do you have to equip it in the character menu? And does it last, meaning once you have it, you always have it on?

Duration of the boss battle, it auto equips.

Gotcha. I’ll unlock with batteries and use it then. I’ll most likely need it going in. Thanks.

I think what's in the fortress is just a skin for customization purposes, it doesn't actually do anything. Could be wrong though.

Just for you Richie Rich...

and that does look like some bad ass armor. Don’t think I unlocked that one actually and went to both outside locations and didn’t see that one behind the invisible wall.

Re: Doom Eternal (3/20/20: PC, PS4, XB1, Switch, Stadia)

Finished this slog of a game this past weekend. What a joke. The Khan Maykr fight was the only thing I liked about this game. They throw everything including the kitchen sink at you on the last level - luckily, they drastically lower the difficulty on this level but still, it's so annoying.

I played this game even though I don't like it because I never completed a doom game before (played the original but that's it) and I wanted to get something out of the money I spent on it.

Doom 2016 is much better, level design is better and has a better flow and also, it's more fun to play.

Battle mode is terrible - and I'm saying that with having given it a shot and with putting some time into it.

They really could have done much better with this game - also, the DLC is just more of the same repetitive, boring, gameplay - oh and look, they're going to make you fight two Marauders at the same time because you know, fighting one wasn't annoying enough.

Yes, that DLC Scott, that's what I'm talking about - if you watch the trailer you will see what I mean as well. I know you can do it.

Try to take it back! What is the worst that can happen? They say no.

at the very least, maybe get store credit somewhere, but they can track CC purchases so not entirely sure, but can it hurt either way? i mean if you keep it and it leaves GP like many do, you got it...

I don’t see why you can’t get credit for whatever they sell it got provided they still do sell it? But I don’t know. Doesn’t the bike GS trade in?

That is what I donít know - if Best Buy still does trade ins. I could do Game Stop but I hate them.
Need to trade in Control as well, will get UE for PS4/PS5 instead and start over.

Re: Doom Eternal (3/20/20: PC, PS4, XB1, Switch, Stadia)

So I really suck. Even on Hurt Me Plenty I've died like a million times and I'm only about an hour in. Is there a trick to defeating Arachnotechnoes? The tip guide says to shoot their turret, which I assume is on the tail, but I can't seem to do that consistently or even intentionally. I even lowered the difficulty to "Please Be Gentle" or whatever and am still having trouble, I must be missing something (other than the turret, ha!)

I think it looks very pretty so far and seems to run smooth on the X but it's juuust about to cross the line from "challenging" to "frustrating" which will get it deleted. Plus I was annoyed by having to create yet ANOTHER damn account in order to play, even though I will never play online.

It seems like it's gotten very mixed reviews at least from here.

Just remember that chainsaw kills will replenish your ammo and a little life, and glory kills will replenish your life. Keep track of where the weaker enemies are and don't forget about your secondary firing modes. ... but mostly I just remember brute forcing the hell out of the arachnotron by shooting it in the face a lot.

The game gets better as it goes.

Get the Precision Bolt upgrade for the Heavy Cannon, ASAP. It basically makes it a sniper rifle, and is excellent for taking out the turret (among other things). It's also perfect for headshots.

the easiest thing to have is the sticky bomb (i think) mod on the combat shotgun, not super shotgun. if aim pretty good, it bullseyes right on the tail and explodes. so maybe 2 times successfully (and it's not hard with that mod supped up) and should be able to just glory kill after.

and after the first few missions, there is less traversing/platforming or at least used to it better and becomes seamless really. not a fan of this edition, but it has been fun after, like you said, the initial first few missions. i was almost finished and then get distracted by Control. will go back though. it has more than inklings of the superior predecessor in 2016...

i honestly hate the precision bolt (takes too long to shoot and load) and i never use the heavy cannon.

It's not the fastest, no, but the upgrade speeds it up 20% (IIRC), and the other upgrade makes a headshot victim explode, causing additional damage to other enemies.

Plus the headshot on the Maykr Drones gives a shit ton of ammo and health.

I think using it a lot helps, too, as you get to know the timing and play to it.

Definitely my favourite weapon, along with the flaming meathook.
