What happens when a Killzone fan, who is also a modder, gets bored during a night of clan fun with friends? Doomzone, that's what! Doomzone is a GZDoom mod that adds class-based gameplay to the game, featuring 13 different player classes, five grenade types, and a whopping 82 weapons.

This mod *REQUIRES* GZDoom v3.0 or later. Previous versions of GZDoom are not supported.

Mod Features:

  • 82 weapons, split and shared among 13 player classes, each with their abilities and resistances
  • 5 grenade types
  • Active skills, ranging from sentry turrets to spawning reinforcements
  • Particle effects (smoke trails, projectile debris, etc.)
  • Randomized item and weapon spawns
  • Lots of new, tougher enemy types
  • New difficulty settings, with even tougher enemies and behavior
  • Doom Eater difficulty, which starts every map with only a pistol
  • Bloody screen effects and low HP screen pulse
  • Meager HP regeneration at low health (you're still gonna need a few medkits for that rocket in your chest, btw)
  • A different experience for every playthrough!

  • Fixed casing spawners interacting with terrain.
  • Fixed issue with the Spoor switching to the wrong fire mode when pulling the trigger too quickly after a failed charge.
  • Heavy's max HP has been reduced to 100, pending a fix for a vexing bug.
  • Fixed issue of STEP# textures drawing invalid data from footstep sounds.

To install, simply overwrite the old version with the new. No previous versions of Doomzone are required, as this is a full release. Older versions have been archived.

If you happen to stumble across any bugs or crashes, please PM any bug reports or crash logs so I can have a look. The more information, the better.

As always, happy fragging!

Yes, this is still being worked on. Progress is just slow, what with me juggling two jobs and all. Currently working on v1.8 (formerly v1.7.1), and theres still plenty more to do. Stay tuned for updates when I'm able to make a press release.

This mod is better than Battleborn, Overwatch and Quake Champions, in my opinion.

I've a question. Do you think to add a Lara Croft-style character as a class to the Roster?

Probably not, since I haven't played the game. However, if dual-weilding is your thing, give Pointman a try. He dual-weilds pistols, not to mention slowing down time.

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Ok. And what about a Shadowman-style class who has the special skill where he charges the weapon used with a powerful shot that instantly kills the weakest enemies giving some health and he uses demonic weapons only (like the Unmaker)?

Also haven't played Shadowman. I do have plans for a Samurai active skill that sort of half does what you described, though.

will it work on zandorum?

I have not tested on Zandronum. My guess is it probably is not compatible. Zandronum lacks a lot of features that Doomzone makes use of, so use Zandronum at your own risk.

Help, the crosshairs are big.

Try using the crosshair scaler under HUD Options.

There is a known issue where the Axe does not work properly while berserked. I am currently addressing the issue, and it will be fixed in the next update. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.

Great mod! Tons of different weapons and enemies to fight. The only real downside I'd say is that some of the classes that are more reliant on bullet weapons like SMGs, AR's, LMGs etc end up feeling a little samey because most of the bullet based weapons feel similar.
