DOOM Beginner Tips and Tricks

Get ready to fight through Hell with this beginner's guide to DOOM!

DOOM is finally back and it plays like the classic fast-paced action games before DOOM 3. That doesn't mean there isn't plenty of things to do, collect, and upgrade though.

Considering how fast and intense the game is, many people may not stop to see all the upgrades and how they work. I'm here to help get you started, or explain some of the things you could overlook when you start playing for the first time.

In DOOM, you play as a marine who has just awoken in a facility on Mars. All you know is that there are demons and you must kill them before they kill you. 

The combat is fast, intense, and gory. You can shoot with your main weapon, and melee.

Eventually you get a chainsaw and of course, the BFG.

When you first get your guns, you can't use any weapon mods.

Even though the game is fast, that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of secrets and exploration to be done.

You can also find Argent Cells, Field Drones, and Rune Trials.

Your suit has 5 different upgrade categories, not including the Argent Cell upgrades, which are separate.

There are 12 total Runes you can unlock by completing Rune Trials found on each level. You can equip a total of 3 at a time once you have completed enough trials.
