What upgrade system is this?

Recommended Posts

 

At 3:10, Hugo is talking about weapon masteries, and the reporter asks if you have to complete a challenge to unlock it, and Hugo says yes... AS HE IS PURCHASING THE WEAPON MASTERY with some sort of currency that he has 7 of.

 

Has this icon / system been explained anywhere? Because I am having trouble figuring out what it is.

It's either a cheat code or something similar admin privileges

 

Nah. A cheat code doesn't give you precisely 7 of something, and it doesn't have a dedicated icon on the UI. It's some sort of point system that I can't find any explanation for. The icon is crossed axes so maybe it's for beating marauders, or you get points for surviving player invasions, like humanity in Souls games? If that's the case it would explain why they are avoiding talking about it since invasion mode has been postponed.

~ I think it may be combat points. The little bar on the top right is the combat meter, and if memory serves me right you get three of those tokens when completing a slayer gate. These points are probably used to purchase weapon upgrades and the like. ~

Nevermind, I just watched the video and noticed that combat points are something else entirely. 
 

I have no stinking clue what that currency is and is for.

My guess is that invasion players play as marauders (which in the Lore appear to be an army of mooks tasked with killing the Doom Slayer) and the E3 presentation where players spawn in as demons was an intentional head-fake to hide the existence of multiple marauders / player controlled marauders. It never made much sense for invasion players to spawn in as, like, a revenant who can get killed in a couple seconds - especially when we also know of the existence of "empowered demons" which function like what you would expect a player-controlled demon to be (more health etc).

Right now only battle mode demons are used for invasions.  So you are actually a beefed up Revenant or a nerfed Marauder.  Invaders are also not allowed to use their summoned abilities and loot block.

I thought it was just a debug feature so the devs don’t have to unlock them every time to test.

I wish devs would leave those features in, with the obvious implication being that they disable achievements or whatever. Or, better yet, make them into unlockable settings for doing things.

 

I love being able to mess around with stuff like that. It's always an excellent addition when things like optional infinite ammo are built into the game as unlocks.

It clearly states :

Challenge: kill 15 pinkies with the auto-shotgun to unlock, or use the axe token to bypass.

 

From the row where the weapons are, there are 13 weapon masteries (0 for BFG, 1 for SSG, 2 for the remaining 6), and since he has seven, uses one, and the icon goes red, it means that this is either very late into the game, using a cheat code, or shit's FUBAR.

 

Whatever the axe token is, it's used to bypass weapon mastery; not a fan at all of that....
