WTF is wrong with Doomguy's shoes?!

Recommended Posts

They have facilities in Mars, interdimensional teleporters and energy weapons, but the boots for their military infantry are slippery af. Doomguy was probably a skier before joining the UAC and that's why he was the only one skilled enough to fight with those damn things on without dying.

 

Or maybe it's just that he runs so ridiculously fast that he just can't stop without sliding.

Maybe he gets them from the same manufacturer as Mario's perfectly-cushioning-yet-stone-cleaving gloves.

So... Are we gonna vote, or does anybody have some more ideas as to what could have happened in terms of shoes? ;-)

The secret to Doomguy's speed isn't about his shoes, it's his rocket propelled scooter as depicted by our local expert on the subject known as Maes.

Every time I see this posted, I think to myself, "this isn't actually a good explanation". Not only would it be difficult, if not impossible, to control while using weapons (how do you grip the handlebars while both hands are occupied with a shotgun?), maneuverability in tight spaces would be severely reduced as the scooter in-game would be much larger than Doomguy by himself.

 

It might work if he had a couple extra arms and it was somehow scaled down.

Through Doomguy ANYTHING is possible. You just gotta believe!

A seems to be the most reasonable one. C and D are quite hilarious though.

Revenants are smaller than what they seem, so I'm just going to assume that the scooter would be in the same situation.

^How about inline skates then? Seems reasonable too...

 

EDIT: I would have given bonus points if that guy behind the counter was a baron of hell ;-)

You aren't truly showing off how much better and stronger you are than the entirety of Hell unless you look fab while you do it.

 

Then again, running 50mph in heels, much less those heels, would be enough to cause anyone to implode in fear.

Now, let's discuss about BJ in Wolf3D where controlling him with a mouse makes him strafing like nobody's business!

I like the look of A... looks like a slightly-more-used version of my workboots. :-)

 

D is just... yeah, no. C is almost as bad.
