Remember the Pro Doom Monster Strats video? It taught a lot of people a couple of new things, even people who have played a long time, I'm thinking somebody should make a video for Chainsaw (and I guess also Berserk) tactics.

Enemies avoid walking into them like 99% of the time, so not particularly. I sometimes use them to blow up walls and stuff, to save pipebombs and rockets for fighting.

>Shotguns in Quake
>Too weak for the bullet sponge enemies, which happen to be all in the game
Hyperbolic. The super shotgun is passable for fighting off dogs and soldiers, as well as the weaksauce knights and the fiends. The regular shotgun is weak as hell though, but it's also your pistol-tier weapon, so to say.
It's no fun fighting the stronger monsters with the SSG, but then Quake's SSG isn't even remotely in the same tier as Doom's, and you shouldn't even be putting yourself in that situation if you can help it.

>Missile launcher in nuke mode in Shadow Warrior
Far more useful than it first appears, because you can fire one of them off into a place, and then make goddamn sure to be out of 'sight' of the explosion, to avoid being killed. On harder difficulties, it can legit be useful. Just fire and GTFO.

Which happen to be one of the few enemies which are meant to be fought against with heavy weapons, along with bots and bosses, none of which the flamethrower is effective. And it has small range, and it's very easy to set yourself on fire with it. It's a complete waste of inventory space unless the player is doing a self-imposed challenge, or using it for the novelty.

When I was in elementary school, I remember my cousin placing hundreds of laser mines on the wall, one next to the other, as he was moving through the map.

After a while, one of them would get tripped, and it would explode in a chain reaction.

I have no fucking idea what map this was, but it was absolutely not one of the vanilla maps.

I also remember him playing on a map that had this cool basement room, but there was a window on the wall just under the ceiling that would let you peek at foot-height on the upper level.

Both shotguns are good. The sawed off does the same damage as the sniper rifle, is nearly as accurate and has much more common ammo. The assault shotgun is the same but a little weaker, but fully automatic.
The flamethrower one hit kills everything but mj12 commandos and larger karkians. But normal human enemies aren't even threats with it.
The plasma rifle is bugged, but honestly it's not that bad, it can still mow down most enemies well enough and it can work as projectile sniper rifle.
The stealth pistol us objectively better as an assault rifle than Deus Ex's assault rifle. It fires fast, has decent damage and is silent. Biggest drawback is that it's inaccurate, but that can be fixed with mods and skill.
You're using the pepper spray wrong. It works very well, but its hitboxes are tricky.

completely redundant and a waste of space and ammo

>> No.5545432

Quake's axe is pretty poor. At least in Doom you could get Berserk and punch like a steam locomotive for an entire level, in Quake you have the Quad Damage, a valuable but timed powerup, and using the axe with the Quad feels highly wasteful, when even Quake's modest super shotgun is pretty decent with Quad.

Other than prodding for secrets, or desperately saving ammo, what's the axe really good for?

It's also a really shitty flashlight.

>>5545118
They sound kind of neat, but they shoot slow, have a small magazine, and the damage is really low (like consistently taking two headshots minimum to kill a regular guard, possibly more for the elite ones).

I think maybe they're there more than anything to be a source for pistol ammo and to have some enemies do weaker damage to you than the others.

Are you, Anon, suggesting my Smith & Wesson 'Airweight' Snub, with its 1" nub of a barrel, and the overall mass of a styrofoam cup, making the use of .357 Magnum loads produce recoil which feels like an angry Mike Tyson slamming his car door on my wrist, isn't a practical weapon with any particularly good purpose?

They're different in Half-Life, because you can both use them on enemies, and they make a pretty substantial explosion.

By that logic, the chainsaw in Doom isn't useless because it can kill enemies. In fact, that means it's not possible for anything in a game to be considered useless because everything has at least one function.

Flamer is a fantastic short-range AoE weapon ideal for roasting random encounters with devastating weaponry but low armor (a lot of highwayman encounters), or any occasion where you might get swarmed (clearing out mutants bunching up in a corner in Military Base) and it's also a stylish and very effective choice for clearing the Wannamingo mine.

3x the damage at the cost of only 2 shells. Definitely not worthless.

>> No.5548619

>>5548608
Most enemies don't even need 3X the damage, it has a long reload animation and is still a waste of ammo, considering stronger enemies are better dealt with using rockets, plasma, etc. It also has a shorter range. Completely pointless.

Man the chainsaw completely wrecks Demons and Revenants and if you know how to move and distance yourself, Hell Knights and Cacos too.
If anything the Chainsaw is OP.

It's great for arch-viles because of his low pain chance. The ammo is common and plentiful, and if you consider that the total damage of all 20 pellets can equal out to about the direct hit of a rocket (give or take, due to RNG), except without the splash damage danger.

People certainly undervalue the regular shotgun because of the SSG, but the SSG does have genuine perks to it.

You're kinda held back by how it latches you onto an enemy, so it makes it harder to do fast maneuvers with the thing.

In Doom 3, it didn't do this, and had a higher DPS, making it viable for fighting like 9 out of 10 monsters in the game, feels kind of radical actually, and makes Doom 3 more fun.

Useful for doing the auto-battle, which doesn't factor in the miss chance.

like other guy said, you can spray an area to stop someone from chasing you or to stop someone coming into a place and a fully charged alt fire will one-shot anyone.
