    a bit disappointed the 16.5.3 drivers dont improve performance at all on my gpu. i was hopeful for a few free fps. game still runs very well for me considering however.

    also i read through the last couple pages just now...are you guys really complaining about the difficulty on hurt me plenty?? im on nightmare :D

    Playing on Ultra Violence right now. Not finding it that challenging.
    I actually found Hurt Me Plenty to be too easy at times.

    Must depend on your gaming ability, mine is low for fps and I even found the easiest difficulty challenging lol

    Make sure you upgrade the gauss cannon. I didn't upgrade it at all on my first playthrough and ended up never using it because it was pretty useless later on. Now with it fully upgraded it destroys enemies easily.

    I played the majority of the game with the super shotgun though. Close range can 1 shot almost anything and with the double shot upgrade makes enemies super easy to kill.

    Or super shotgun to the face.

    ... that makes short work of just about anything.

    The final weapon... hmm... now what might that be... ;)

    Yea I immediately modded it with the scope and invested some upgrade points to improve it.
    It's basically the rail gun, which I've always liked for some reason.

    Currently working towards gaining the double shot for SS.

    I am through the yellow gate but I can't get to the next part. You have to completely clear out everything to get the next door to open and there are at least 2 Summoners and 3 or 4 Knights along with everything else it seems. I haven't really used the super shotgun much since I like the explosive shot mode of the regular one. I'll try using the super more. Using the rocket launcher on the Summoners is literally a hit or miss proposition since they blink away so fast.

    Is anyone else using the tactical scope for the heavy assault rifle for actual headshots? At first, I wasn't sure about it (enemies are moving pretty fast all the time), but I'm a few headshots away from the full upgrade, and it's pretty damaging. It's no sniper rifle (which is fine - it's not supposed to be), but I like this variety of playstyle sometimes. I don't know what's so satisfying about ganking Summoners with it... probably because prior to that, I was using the rocket launcher with the lock upgrade (to get the mastery), and you barely have to aim.

    Yeah rocket launches will never work man. The beauty of DOOM (gameplay wise) is the emergent complexity from relatively simple systems. You have your character movement, double jump and then a variety of weapons, use them all man.

    The Plasma rifle has a stun bomb as alt-fire (one of the upgrades) just use that on the summoners and pick them off with the gauss rifle, or get close and supershotgun them. For me the problem is almost always the hellknights, or rather, fighting hellknights among other mobs. The hellknights need my undivided attention, so if I can't focus them down at the start, I just run like hell and try and kill everything else so I can focus on them

    Yea I use it too, good for longer range shots. I prefer the scope over micro-missiles.

    Just had the first CTD in Doom.

    Could be due to Steam overlay maybe, I've had it disabled before. Or me switching between levels constantly (did some benchmarking / testing).

    I havent seen any change logs yet either for the patch.

    BTW, my step sons rig has a 1055t@ 3.5ghz, 8GB DRR3 1600, and a XFX R9 280 Black edition 1ghz core, and its amazing it plays the game on all high settings @ 2560x1080 and always stays above 40fps.

    I'm still on my first playthrough, and not knowing how many upgrades would be available in the game or if there would even be enough to get them all (sure seems like it so far), I have been skittish about every upgrade I've gotten. That plasma rifle stun ball is worth it in my opinion - fires quickly and stops them dead in their tracks (and they even kneel a little for free headshots).
