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 loud as fuck. 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, and a weapon will never be outclassed when you find a new weapon.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. Press F (default bind) to taunt enemy players, and Z or X (default binds) to wave to other players in cooperative modes.
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!!!!!

On v20b there will be a CVAR called "bd_blursphere". It can restore the invisibility power-ups (which are replaced by captured marines), or mix them, with a random chance of spawning each other.

And now, unlike in Vanilla Doom, the player is actually invisible, and you can confuse and trick enemies with it. Watch a demonstration here:

So Brutal Doom v20 is going to have grenades. The idea of grenades to me is mixed. Grenades in Brutal Doom seem like it would make the mod too easy. Because you can just bounce them around corners and take out pockets of creatures or whatever with ease without having to barely do anything.

However on the other hand, depending on map. They may be somewhat useful for clearing barrels.

My concern is that balance needs to be strongly considered. You can't give them extreme levels of damage and you can't give players too many. Otherwise, what would be the point to shooting at things or sneaking when you can just throw grenades around?

Yeah. I love the hell out of everything Brutal Doom is becoming, but I'm still kind of unsure about the grenades. On one hand, we already (sort of) have the grenade launcher, and I don't feel particularly overly powerful when using that. The fire rate is really slow, and I imagine throwing a grenade would be just as slow if not more so.

I think for grenades to work, they should be slow to prime and throw. Make it useful in certain situations, but boring and unfun to use as a primary weapon. That alone should sort of solve the problem itself.

I actually LOVE the idea of grenades! If the damage output is done right, I strongly agree with the concept.

Obviously I love them, and you're right the balance is what matters. They are honestly not that much different than rocket launcher or grenade launcher, just another option to have.

Oukay. So i made a little addon that becomes both idea and it's implementation:
- BlureSphere now replaced with DoomSphere (DoubleDamage).
- Captured marines now spawns on HealthBonus\ArmorBonus, with very small chance.

- Juggernaut and Belphegor added to "normal" gameplay.
- Railgun, GrenadeLauncher and BFG10000 added to "normal" gameplay.

Load THIS pk3 AFTER ButalDoom (tested with v20, but should work with v19 too):

Have fun.

Getting this error:

Script error, "bd_itemon_test.pk3:bsqdamage" line 22:
Sprite names must be exactly 4 characters

Looked it up, and you have on line 22:

dosta AAABBBCCCBBB 2 Bright

Needs to be

dost AAABBBCCCBBB 2 Bright

Also, your spawner for the monsters has "Belphegor", but it needs to be "LordBelphegor".

And lastly, for the weapon spawns, the Slot5Weapon spawner won't work on v20 correctly, because v20 names the grenade launcher "GrenadeLauncher", while v19 uses "Grenade_Launcher". So unfortunately, you would either have to have a separate version for v19 and v20, or choose which one you'd rather support and only have it.

Besides that stuff, good effort. Keep thinking up ideas - there's always room for new and cool ideas.

I know about sprite and Grenadelauncher. Didn't noticed that belphegor was renamed (thank you for point me at this!).
Here is the Fixed Final version (for v20).

BrĂ¼tal 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…

Brutal Doom is an over the top (and OVERRATED) mod for the classic DOS Doom games. The weapon sprites look nice and smooth... That is where the positives end I am afraid. The sounds within this mod are terrible (excluding voice acting), the weapons sound like water guns compared to the sounds of the enemies screams of pain (Seriously are you into sadism and shit bro?), the screaming blasts over every other sound going off, it is pure ear hell! The balancing of the mod is absolutely shagged: More…
