Someone modded the classic Doom to add weapons from this year’s Bethesda-developed reboot.
In the process, they basically created an entirely new experience.
If there’s one thing no one can accuse Bethesda’s Doom of lacking, it’s weapons. From the infinite-ammo charge pistol peashooter to the trusty shotgun, lethal Gauss cannon, sharpshooting assault rifle and (of course) legendary BFG, this game not only provides you with ample firepower, but gives you a proper experience with each one. Perhaps the best part of this game is that you don’t have to wait till near the end of the campaign to get your hands on a proper arsenal. Also, no reloading required.
Now, a genius programmer calling themselves DBThanatos has gone and thrown these weapons into a modded version of the classic Doom. The new guns feature freshly animated sprites and have been shifted to the right side of the screen, a la modern FPS titles. You can aim along the y-axis too. You can download and try the mod for yourself here.
Not only have the guns been improved, the monsters have too. Cacademons now fire faster fireballs. The Pinky’s charge is significantly sped up. As are the rockets fired by the Cyberdemon.

Did someone call shotgun?
Assault (rifle) your senses
They call it the BFG for a reason
