After quite a number of delays, Doom Eternal is finally out and it makes quite the explosive entrance. A fair number of us here at RPS have been enjoying our time blasting through demonic hordes, brutally removing limbs and organs in the process, in our quest to save all of mankind from being enslaved. It’s an incredibly fast-paced game and it can definitely kick your arse if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Doom Eternal guide
I’ve collated the top 20 tips that you need to know going in and put them in this here Doom Eternal guide. They have been separated into three categories: how to survive just about any fire fight, how to find all those hidden goodies, and what you should be spending upgrade points on. Let’s get on with it shall we? Those demons aren’t going to get rid of themselves.
- 1. If there is one thing you should do at all times, you should keep moving. Even if you’re just shooting at an enemy from afar, you should at the very least be strafing from side to side so that the demons can’t get a good lock onto you.
- 2. Focus on larger enemies when you have full ammunition and reserve humanoid enemies for recovering health, ammunition, and armour. If you get rid of the smaller foes too early, you may find there’s no way to recover health when you’re at death’s door.
- 3. There are lots of ledges, pipes, and portals littered around most areas where enemies appear. They’re not just for show. Use them as often as you can to dart around the area, getting the jump on demons where you can.
- 4. If you need to recover armour safely, use the flame thrower to roast a staggered foe. Do this before either performing a glory kill to get both health and armour, or mincing them up with a slash of the chainsaw for ammo and armour.
- 5. Know which alternative fire modes are best for dealing with certain enemies. For example, Cacodemons (the big eyeball things that float around) really hate swallowing grenades from Sticky Bombs. Getting rid of them first gives you some much needed breathing room to deal with the other big threats.
- 6. Some enemies have weaknesses that can be exploited to reduce their firepower. Arachnotrons (the big brains with spider legs) can have their turret blown off with a sticky grenade or a well-placed bolt from the heavy cannon, while Revenants rocket launchers can be destroyed.
- 7. Use secondary fire often, as they’re usually much better than the primary fire for dealing with certain enemies. Hell Knights (the hulking jumping demons) tend to have a harder time against explosives like sticky grenades, micro missiles, and many others.
- 8. Shoot any mines or red barrels near enemies. Their explosions will nearly always stagger them for a short time, interrupting their attack for a short time.
- 9. For any enemy that uses plasma shielding, concentrated fire of the plasma gun will strip the shield.
- 10. Are you finding levels too tough but don’t want to resort to cheats or changing the difficulty? Use the Mission Select to complete old missions to get Extra Lives. These carry over to your main campaign progress.
- 11. Check the Automap often. Secrets will show up constantly as question marks and when they do, their access point is usually not too far away. Crumbling walls or certain symbols can be punched to reveal hidden areas.
- 12. By looking at the Items Found list on the right side of the screen, you can see how many you still need to collect by looking at the number of question marks.
- 13. Walk everywhere, even if it seems like a dead end. You may find that a secret item question mark will appear. Areas you have walked on will appear green in the Automap.
- 14. Demonic Corruption is a handy indicator of how many encounters remain in the mission. The types of encounters are:
- Red: Standard enemy encounter. Just kill all the enemies to win.
- Purple: Slayer Gate. Harder encounters where extra lives and ammo aren’t restored afterwards. You can retry these if you die.
- Pink: Secret encounters. These are normally timed against fixed enemies and can be retried if you fail.
- Yellow: Boss fights. Kill the boss to get all the Weapon Points.
- 15. Don’t forget about your grenades. If enemies bunch up, you can fire either a frag or ice grenade to deal with multiple threats at once.
- 16. Spend your first seven Praetor Suit points on the Exploration perks. It’ll help a lot with finding secrets in levels. Other perk types when purchased do things like upgrade your grenades, buff up resistances to environmental damage, and improve base skills like dashing or reloading.
- 17. For maximum mobility, your first two Rune unlocks should be Chrono Strike and Air Control. Beginners should also consider Saving Throw for a chance to save themselves should they die. Those used to the speed of the previous Doom may wish to consider one of the others.
- 18. After buying all of the upgrades for a secondary weapon slot with Weapon Points, replay older missions or go to the Demon Prison at the bottom of the Fortress of Doom hub area to unlock the mastery perk at your own pace.
- 19. You can unlock more stuff in the Fortress of Doom by finding Sentinel Batteries. They are either found in missions, or by completing all three Mission Challenges for a particular mission.
- 20. Unlocking two Sentinel Crystals (these upgrade health, armour, and ammo cap limits) on the same Sentinel Crystal route will give you a permanent perk. I recommend starting with Quickdraw Belch and Loot Magnet routes first as increasing the range at which resources are pulled in is vital for survival, and having more armour is always a good thing.
