With our DOOM multiplayer guide, you will learn everything there is to learn about the game’s multiplayer mode:

DOOM Multiplayer Mode Basics

As mentioned earlier, DOOM’s multiplayer mode is insanely fast-paced which is why it is possible to miss out on a few things. One of the most important thing that you need to keep in mind is never let go of random pick-ups scattered around the map. These pick-ups are a key to your survival so make sure to pick them up whenever you come across them.

Moreover, while playing the game, you should never try to rush things like power weapons, demon runes, and power-ups until you are sure that there are no enemies nearby. Lastly, there is no doubt that the game is extremely fast-paced which is why you should never try and camp your way in and should always be on the move.

Do not mistake this game for Call of Duty or Battlefield because it isn’t it!

DOOM Multiplayer Loadouts

At the start of the multiplayer experience, you are provided with a total of three non-customizable loadouts – Assault, Sniper, and Ambusher. However, as you progress through the game, you gain access to five additional loadouts.

A loadout basically contains two standard weapons and a piece of equipment. It is a good idea to have different loadouts available to you so that you are able to tackle different situations and game mode rather easily. While customizing your loadout, you should try to keep different ranges at which you may encounter enemies. Due to this fact, you should try to avoid having both shotguns in a single loadout.

You can refer to some of the loadouts provided below to know how to best customize your loadout in the game:

Loadout #1: Vortex Rifle, Super Shotgun, and Shield Wall
Loadout #2: Rocket Launcher, Burst Rifle, and Hologram
Loadout #3: Plasma Rifle, Combat Shotgun, and Frag Grenade
Loadout #4: Chaingun, Lightning Gun, and Siphon Grenade
Loadout #5: Heavy Assault Rifle, Vortex Rifle, and Tesla Rocket

Hack Modules

These come in three different variants – Bronze, Silver, and Gold – and are awarded randomly after leveling up or finishing a multiplayer match.
