I'm assuming you're talking about Tower of Babel in Doom 1.

Kill all the lost souls first avoiding him if possible (it's a big arena), and then you can simply perpetually circlestrafe around him while peppering him with rockets.
Remember that you can get health and rocket ammo in the arena - save soulspheres for when you can make the most of them. Don't save them up too much though, Cyberdemon can easily deal upwards of 100 damage (up to about 300 in a worst case scenario) so you probably want to be 100+ at all times. However, he can't really 1 hit kill you - because blue armor gives you 50% damage reduction until you pick up green armor (which grants 1/3 reduction)- though you don't have any armor other than blue in this level, so you don't have to worry about that in this specific level. Still, remember that protection will run out when your armor % drops to 0 - if so, avoid getting hit at all costs.

Other than that, I recommend using savegames liberally, it's not cheating - it's how id software wanted game to work.

He isn't. There's tons of cover and he's only got slow projectiles.

Spider Mastermind fights in a giant mostly-open field with enemy backup and is a hitscanner to boot.

I mean, he has problems beating Cyberdemon, so ... It's better that he savescums his way to victory, and eventually get better at the game by playing D2, TNT and Plutonia.

>> No.4380605

BFG makes everything easy. Using it during SM fight is likely to stop any infighting, though. At higher difficulties you're more likely to die from having a Baron tear your ass open or zapped by a cacodemon trying to get to cover than getting tagged by a CD missile.

Doom sourceports at the very least increase the damage you take if it hits you in the sides or back, so getting surrounded during the SM fight is a death sentence whereas CD just has crappy lost souls that frankly end up just increasing the chances that you won't get hit by his missiles.

>> No.4380707

I don't mean so much the fight itself as the monster. Brainspider is a piece a piss but Cyberdemon fucks up everybody.

I think I had more trouble with the 2nd boss fight than the third actually, but that's neither here or there

It is cheating. You're supposed to save at the start of a level so that you can come back.

You're not support to save mid-level or anything.

That's why you lose your guns if you die. It's punishment for bad playing.

>> No.4381837

missile pattern is 1-2-3 pause 1-2-3 pause. You can just strafe in circle in one direction if you don't master the pattern yet and you'll be 100% safe. or you can face him and go left right left right to dodgethe missiles. Also

Dont know if this is really just some shitty vr meme like >>4380104 says but this is still a way shitty thread. Cyber d is never hard. If you have played the game up to this point he should be nothing. He is like the most basic standard for an fps boss

Go inside the building and stand behind the button wall. He can't hit you. Proceed to kill.

One of the most coolest looking iconic enemies in all of vidya. Anyone else agree? Cacodemon is still the best Doom monster though.

Fire rockets and dodge his rockets by strafing. When you run out of rockets, go into the building in the middle of the arena and get some more rockets. I'm pretty sure there's a soul sphere in there as well. Its pretty damn simple.
