XBOX UNIDOS

This game is fun but kinda frustrating

Recommended Posts

Not just because you reset the level when you die but playing in controller sometimes I just don't have the accuracy and I get lost in the map all the time because everything is so equal, do you have any tips for me in order to have fun and keep the stress out?

Use saved games. With that username I imagine you're running the Xbox port, so you even have quick saves/loads.

to be fair even with the auto map the game is till very confusing for new players

if you get lost for too long on a map  look up a gameplay video of that map on youtube so you can know where to go next for the frustrating part i recommend you to save often on levels so when you die you dont lose weapons and progress on the level

I used to have the same problem when I was new at Doom. It's not only that, I was also afraid of Barons and Cyberdemons, I was keeping getting my ass kicked by them because I was very paniced whenever I had to face them. Btw, if you don't want to restart the whole thing with a pistol, just use saves. It's common for a new Doom gamer getting lost in maps, but with enough practise, you'll be able to memorize the map and even get good at the game

Welcome to the strange and wonderful world of nonlinear classic fps games! Keep your wits about you by utilizing your automap, pay attention to landmarks, keep track of colored keycards (skull keys too!) and which doors they go to, use smaller firearms to take down fodder, use bigger boom booms to take out the big baddies (use the explosive barrels when possible), keep in mind enemies can infight, when engaging the enemies keep moving around (strafing, zig zagging). Most importantly have fun and don't get stressed out, it's just a video game lol.

Yes, which even highlights if the autoaim is tracking a target.

Man Doom has been out for nearly 30 years now. If you're really that lost there's tons of walkthroughs for it you can use.

Yes [there is a crosshair], which even highlights if the autoaim is tracking a target.

I found that bothered me when I played through The Ultimate Doom on Xbox One - it made sense to me to turn the crosshair off, as then I didn't spend so much time wondering why it wasn't aiming where I thought it should be. It feels a little more intuitive when you can't see what it's up to - it also makes full-auto weapons more rewarding to use at the expense of the shotgun feeling less accurate.

 

As for the OP - I've found playing for 28 years or so has helped a lot with stuff like navigating. Just take your time and get used to it - the maps aren't particularly big or confusing, and the automap (press "Y" on Xbox One to toggle it) helps orient yourself and see where you've already been.
