In development since 2010, the 18th Cacoward winner and Moddb 2012 MOTY Editors Choice of Creativity Award Brütal Doom takes Doom into a whole new level. It makes the game much more violent than before. There's much more blood, plus it adds unique gibs, death animations, dismemberments, headshots, executions, fire and explosion particles, flares, shadows over all objects, and much more.
The whole world becomes more real and interactive.You can kick severed limbs and heads (and sometimes, use it to activate some traps in the map earlier, or even kick them against enemies to do some damage), you can shoot enemies' heads to deal more damage (and cause more gruesome deaths) you can destroy most things in the the scenario (trees, lamps, hanging bodies, etc), you can paint the floor, the walls, and even the ceiling with blood, you can push the explosive barrels to make traps, or grab them and use like an explosive weapon, you can silently take down enemies from behind and perform stealth kills, the chainsaw actually cuts the enemies in two. When you find the berserk pack and get super strength, you can perform cinematic executions and RIP AND TEAR your foes with your bare hands. Some enemies will scream in anguish and try to crawl away when near death, and they can be used as human shields, and much, much more

Everything in Brutal Doom is extremely intense. Everything sounds louder, looks bigger, moves faster, and hits harder. You can even fell the impact of explosions. Enemies are harder and smarter, and weapons and explosions are much louder. Your weapons have been upgraded to a deadly arsenal, completely throwing the vanilla Doom's "progressive weapon system" through the window. Every weapon is powerful and have it's pros and cons, a a weapon will never be outclassed when you find a new weapon, but only find a different use for different situations, making Brutal Doom more balanced and more strategic than Vanilla gameplay. You have new abilities too. With any weapon selected, you can press Q (default bind) to kick enemies at close range and send them away.

Brütal Doom will make the good an old Doom have a new and fresh look. It will give you a reason to play all the Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, and Final Doom levels again. This mod also works with almost every megawad and map pack around. Take a breath, and prepare to RIP AND TEAR HUGE GUTS!!!!!

Using the idfa and gzdoom 'sv_cheats 1' and give weapons, I can't figure out how to give myself access to the dual wielding at game start. Does anyone know the trick??

It should be binded to X.

The issue isnt the binding, its actually acquiring the second weapon. SMG like never drops, and dropping weapons to IDFA then picking them up again doesn't seem to work either with the exception of plasma gun. Can't seem to get rifle/pistol/smg to work, and I never find SMGs spawning on maps

Well, it seems that another, but very similar version of the same weapon is required for dual wielding. For example, if you start with the regular assault rifle, and spawn it, you can't dual wield with it. However, rifles dropped by enemies will allow for dual wielding. My guess is that it's coded so that it checks if you have a specific weapon in your inventory, and will replace drops of that weapon with the second version for dual wielding.

When I play the game in purist mode without any mouselook the aim can sometimes get thrown upwards or downwards as a result of some monsters like the lost soul messing up your aim. It kinda breaks purist mode honestly. I hope this will get fixed for the final version.

DOOM is 24 y/o today. Happy birthday to the grandfather of all shooters!

Spider Mastermind is pretty much impossible to kill. He takes too much damage. I think the same for Icon of Sin.

Brütal Doom clearly deserves a 10, for several reasons: First, it has been developed almost single handedly by a goodwill individual, who clearly has shown the outmost dedication and perseverance through 2 years of continued development, besides from being always open-minded and patient, hearing suggestions and criticism and enduring ludicrous amounts of flame-wars on some of the forums where the project was being discussed. Such professionalism must be taken in note. Second: the level of compromise…
