Hi, been browsing for months and thought I would join. Am I the only one mourning the loss of the double barreled shotgun?

when i first saw the doublebarreled shotgun in doom2 it seemed a little out of place, looking like it has been used at 1772 or somthing; not exactly space marine equipment. though i got pretty good used to it... (1 shot 1 kill in deathmatch etc) so i am not really sure, if i want it in doom3.


edit: aeh... welcome to the forums

Well, I'm a single player only kinda guy and since nobody else is, I guess you're right. I was kinda looking forward to giving the hell knight my twin barrels of death in D3. Plus, it's just the feeling of power the db shotgun gives. Rather have that than the machine gun or soul cube.

Yeah I'll initially miss the DB shotgun in Doom 3, but in time there'll more than likely be skin tools so you can build your own fifty-barrelled shotgun if that's what floats your boat :)

BTW welcome to the forum!

A little while ago, I thought the db shotgun was a goner, until I started paying better attention to the recently released X-Box trailer.

There's at least two occasions during this trailer where the regular Doom 3 shotgun sounds differently and much more powerful. The gun's firing sound is deeper and the following *chuck-chack* sounds beefier too.
Having listened carefully, I can now say that this 'new' sound is very similar to the Doom 3 db shotgun's firing sound. This is of course one of those things that prompted people to think: "Hey! Doom 3's guns have alt-fire modes!" - but me, I ain't buying that one.

Firstly, if there's alt-fire modes in Doom 3, why would Id claim the opposite?

Secondly, JC wants to keep the game simple - unless Id came up with some truly innovative and FUN alt-fire modes, which a secondary "double shot" from the sb shotgun sure as Hell isn'y, this one's a goner.

I also noticed that the roaring Hell Knight in that video lets out a roar that sounds so similar to the pinky on a different occasion in the same vid that I'm inclined to believe it's the same sound.

My guess is that they sampled in different sound effects for...effect.
What I'm saying is that I now think the double-barrel shotgun is pretty certain to be in Doom 3, even though they haven't mentioned it. It's definitely too early to mourn "the loss" of the double-barrelled shotgun, since it hasn't yet been confirmed as 'not being in'.
