Enemy Descriptions

The following is a list of enemies and a brief description:

Former Soldiers - They resemble your old friends, but now they just fire pistols at you. They drop clips for the chaingun and pistol when killed.
Former Sergeants - Meaner and tougher. They carry shotguns and do more damage then soldiers. They drop shotguns when killed.
Imp - This creature throws fireballs and takes more bullets to kill.
Demon - Appear in most areas and can rip your head off if you are not careful. If you see more of them, use the chaingun.
Cacodemon - These creatures are ugly and have one big mouth. If they see you, they will fire lightning balls from their mouth. Use your rockets.
Mancubus - You have to use more then a chaingun to kill them. Use ammo with caution.
Arachnotron - Fires plasma energy at you. Use your rifle.
Spider Demon - The ultimate enemy. Has a super chaingun mounted on her body. Use your plasma rifle or rocket launcher.

Using sounds to find monsters

-Listen for weird sounds such as heavy breathing during the game. Those sounds are the brown monsters that throw fireballs. When the sounds stop, that means they are all dead. However, there still may be normal enemies with guns and shotguns or pig monsters.

-The snorting sounds in the game are from the pigs. Once the sounds stop, that means they are all dead.

Enemies attack each other

Enemies that don't have the same type do not have much respect for each other. If they accidentally shoot each other, they will turn on each other. If you have very little ammo or health, this can be used to your advantage. Enemies of the same type (with the exception of any Former Human and Lost Souls) will not attack each other.

Cheat Codes (command line)

Start the game with the doom -devparm command line to activate the corresponding cheat function. Note: The parameters marked with an asterisk (*) do not require -devparm in the command line. Most of these parameters can be mixed and matched to create different effects. For example, start the game with the doom -devparm -wart 1 8 -record demo01 -respawn command line would record a demo on episode one, level eight, with monster respawn. Finally, press F1 during development mode for a 256 color screenshot in .PCX format.

Nightmare mode

Cheat codes cannot be used in nightmare mode. It is just like the regular game, except the monsters are tougher and harder to kill. Enemies will keep appearing non-stop on each level; you have to try and get to the end before more appear.

Death on stairs

Kill an enemy while he is on the side of the stairs. The enemy will die, but will be floating on the side of the stairs. If you kill an enemy at the top of the steps, the enemy should stay dead but fall down the steps.

Malfunctioning code

Enter "idbehold" as a code. A list of words will appear at the top of the screen. It makes you invisible and offers visibility in dark places, but does not make you invulnerable to enemy attacks or have other effects as it states.
