Omniverse's Weapon Rebalance

About This File

A WAD for rebalancing the weapons in Doom. Primarily intended for DM, but could be used for single player or co-op as well.

The purpose of this rebalance is to shift the focus of the weapon balance away from single player and towards DM, and to reduce the difference in power between several of the weapons. Most importantly, this should reduce the effectiveness of mindlessly spamming the rocket launcher or plasma rifle.

Chainsaw: * Doubled the damage output to make it more useful. Should still be very hard to kill someone with, but at least it's more likely.

Pistol: * Increased rate of fire to make it slightly more useful.

Shotgun: * Decreased downtime between shots to make it less overshadowed by the Double Barrelled Shotgun.

Chaingun: * Increased rate of fire to keep weapon balanced with Pistol.

Rocket Launcher: * Increased the speed at which rockets fly through the air to make the speed of rockets seem more appropriate, and to eliminate the possibility of outrunning your own rockets. * Decreased the rate at which rockets could be fired to keep weapon balanced with previous change.

Plasma Rifle: * Reduced Maximum Cells to 150 (300 with Backpack) to reduce the length of time someone could use it before needing more ammo. * Increased the recharge time inbetween bursts of firing to increase the vulnerability of someone using the Plasma Rifle.

BFG9000: * Reduced Maximum Cells to 150 (300 with Backpack) to reduce the length of time someone could use it before needing more ammo. * Increased the number of cells used per shot to 50.

      Nice mini episode, reminds me of some sort of amateurish Plutonia Experiment sometimes. Pretty enjoyable!

      A very decent challenge. Took me about half a dozen attempts to crack it on UV. The wad is from 2015, but could just as well have been from around 1997. Solid, traditional classic Dooming.

      The visual level design here is mostly similar to Plutonia and its unofficial sequels PL2 and PRCP. But it is by no means a gameplay part, since for example the gameplay in the first maps revolves around ammo shortage with not so much opposition (although it was tight in places, I admit), while the latter maps are somewhat reminiscent of slaughterwads with a bunch of ammunition and opponents.   The same applies to the size of the maps - the first ones can be completed in 6-7 minutes, while the last ones takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Although this could be explained by a kind of progress, despite the fact that even MAP12 (the first map in wad) is not a walk in the park.   I am not opposed to forced pistol-start (maybe even for), but usually if the levels should be completed in this way, they should be better balanced, as the ability to store things from previous levels is discarded.
      And again, I repeat as previous speakers - perhaps some arch-viles were even superfluous. This is especially noticeable when you go through the same room several times.

      Mostly enjoyable set in vein of "Plutonia but harder" and with larger fights. Visuals are often minimalistic, with combat being the focus of making the maps interesting. Expect plenty of Viles to resurrect what you kill and forced pistol starts on every map. 3/5

      Pretty nice map, some parts are been a little rushed out like the columns texture alignment, but overall the structure and the layout is pretty cool!
