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!!!!!

Hey Mark, is it possible if you could add in this pistol

But you can still use the Rifle as well too? Like you can use both, and the pistol has red iron sights like the rifle! =D

P.S Mark you are awesome! Don't listen to those idiots who attack you constantly.

We true Doomers support you! =D

Anyway bro, are you going to use No Remorse by Metallica for the new V20 Trailer? Get it because No Remorse is E1M1? =D

Also, I remember I saw an HD version of the Classic Doom Shotgun on ZDoom Forums a while back (before you were banned) I thought it was pretty cool. Is there a way you could use those sprites or something? =3

And lastly....

If you ever need a bit more inspiration for your mod.

Just watch Aliens (1986), The Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead 2 (1987), and Army of Darkness (1992) consecutively! =D

I <3 your mod! And dude... you are awesome. Don't listen to those fascists from ZDoom Forums or Zandronum Forums or wherever else you've been banned from (EDIT: Me and you have been banned from the exact same sites! XDD)

"True Doomers" is a rather subjective term when used in the way you have used it. What actually defines a "true Doomer?" One who plays DOOM because it is DOOM, or one who plays DOOM because of its limitless modding capabilities?

Words are powerful, so choose them more thoughtfully.

As I said to FPSNation, words are powerful, and should be chosen wisely. I ask you, what is a "real Doomer?" The term is extremely vague, and many have their own interpretation.

To me, it is someone who enjoys DOOM for what it is; a game that, among others, forever changed gaming history, and brought with it and endless number of opportunities to create amazing things. A "real Doomer" does not accuse others of being "fake Doomers," as that in-itself indicates that you, yourself, are not a "real Doomer."

I have chosen my words. I would like to see you choose yours.

Bravo man, Spoken like a true doomer ( a person that plays doom) its really that simple is it not? anyone that says otherwise is about as bad as the people that tell me I can't be a Jugggalo because I own a pair of cowboy boots, and don't own every ICP album. In my opinion, anyone that feels the need to place a label such as "TRUE DOOMER" on themselves has every right to do so. As for those that must tell others that they are fake, who are they to set the standard? "TRUE DOOMER" is a label, not a cult membership with union dues, regulations, and standards to live up to. "I PLAY DOOM THEREFORE I AM A DOOMER" nothing else need follow that statement.

Thank you very much RickEl. Just to throw it out there, I too, am a Juggalo. Been a while since I've actually met another one. Heh.

Back on subject; You have also chosen wiser words than many I have seen on this site. I personally do not consider myself a "true" or "real" Doomer. I am just a guy that's playing DOOM and the mods that have cropped up around it.

Yes, FPSNation does have a point, as the fellows on various other DOOM forums can be quite hostile, however, the same can be said here.

Either way, I wasn't questioning his point, rather, it was his choice of a few words.

JetBlackAngst Feb 14 2015, 6:42am says:

Sergeant Mark, I have a complaint that really bothers me while playing your Brutal Doom:

"Upon playing Brutal Doom (version 19), I encounter a glitch wherein if the Doom marine is in "fatality/Rip-and-Tear" mode, whenever I kick a nearby downed demon, I would die/get gibbed. Same goes when I perform a flying kick on an imp and possessed marines (although there are times that I only obtain heavy damage, depending on the range of the kick itself)."

I hope in your version 20, this glitch will no longer be a nuisance in our gaming experience.

brandonvortex1 Feb 14 2015, 9:00am replied:

yeah same thing happen to me too but this problem already happen when this version 19 came out

only thing to avoid is that dont get closer to kick the injured imp or zombies. Otherwise you end up die
but i may suggest other brutal doom mod where this problem been fixed even when v20 still on the making

Saw the video, really impressive effects on the dead bodies. Like the fact the zombie man slumps up against the wall as opposed to just clipping through it with his traditional animation.

You mention a class based weapon system in which there are multiple skill-sets and load outs. Nothing wrong with the idea, just so long as there is an original Brutal Doom mode in which people can play as the original Brutal Doom Space Marine. No class based restrictions or anything, just playing Brutal Doom as you normally would is what I'm getting at.

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…

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…
