Doom Eternal has a lot of great moments, and nothing feels better than getting a lucky shot at a demon. I had my chance when I switched from an ineffective plasma gun to a shotgun in this scene.

I jumped down a hole and avoided the gnashing teeth at the bottom with a dash to the side at the last second. Then I got a boost up to the top of a shaft, where a bunch of new enemies awaited me.

Bethesda will publish id Software’s Doom Eternal on the consoles and the PC on March 20. I played on PS4.

One of them was a Cacodemon, a flying demon that isn’t too fast but has a nasty attack. The demon started closing in on me, but I switched to the weapon wheel and grabbed my trusty shotgun. But the Cacodemon got so close that it pushed me into the mineshaft again. As I fell backward, I fired a sticky bomb upward. Then I hit the bottom, and the booster spit me back up to the top.

I was stepping in the lava but I realized that the sticky bomb went into the mouth of the Cacodemon, who was staggered and helpless with indigestion. So I went in for the Glory Kill (melee). It was a small but fun moment in Doom Eternal, which is full of such escapist episodes. Check it out in the attached video.

Here’s our other coverage of Doom Eternal: Overall impressions, my favorite firefight, a double boss fight, the beginning video, and puzzle-solving.
