This could very well be the person who you were joking around with not 2 days ago. Well, now he's working for the enemy so you'll have to put that memory aside and give him a memory with your guns. The first enemy you will usually encounter, not powerful or deadly and can be dispatched easily with any weapon, you get a clip when you kill this guy.
Tougher than Former Humans but weaker than Former Human Commandos, these guys aren't too bad on their own, more of a threat in groups though especially at close range. They will drop a Shotgun when you waste them.
Not maybe the appearance you were expecting, Imps are seen early on but are hard to bring down with just a pistol. A shotgun blast will kill them in one go but you'll need several pistol shots, not great with its slow rate of fire. Be sure to find something more powerful to kill these guys with.
These guys are tough early on, but one of the weaker enemies overall. Their biggest weakness is the fact they have to be right next to you to attack you, so you have all the time it takes them to cover the distance between you to kill them. Also, if you have a chainsaw that will kill them without them being able to retaliate.
Demons with the power of an Invisibility sphere, quite a deadly combination in a dark room.
Big floating red things that spit fireballs at you. These guys are quite large so they're easy to hit, you'll need 2 rockets to dispatch them.
Flying skulls of fire is the best way to describe these enemies. They are produced by the Pain Elementals and will fly directly at your position, though if you move they won't adjust accordingly, they'll just carry on going until they hit something. 1 rocket or 2 shotgun blasts will make these guys think about messing with you again.
These guys are the strongest non-boss enemies that you will come across. While fairly slow and having easy to avoid attacks on their own, in a group they will either take all of your attention or they will get you while you're shooting other people. You will need 5-6 rockets in order to bring these guys down, they're that tough. Often coming in pairs you feel like you should get something for killing them besides just satisfaction.
Supposedly the brains behind these operations and seemingly the mother of the Arachnotrons. Being equipped with a big Chaingun instead of a Plasma Gun doesn't make these guys any easier, their attack will change you to Swiss cheese in no time at close range. Spider Masterminds are large targets though and at long distance you can use a Rocket Launcher or BFG without taking too much damage and be confident it won't be able to move its large frame out of the way in time.
Big and with a powerful rocket launcher, the Cyberdemon is the toughest enemy you will face in this game. Taking upwards of 35 rockets or several BFG shots to bring down, thankfully these guys are few and far between. If you don't have anything more powerful than a shotgun then avoiding these guys until you do is a wise strategy.
This page contains a list of all the items that you can pick up in the game. They all take effect immediately when you pick them up and if you are unable to pick something up it's because you have maxed out that particular stat.

These cards/skulls are needed to pass through coloured doors or activate colour based switches. The order you find them in a level is not always the same but if you come up against a coloured door you haven't got the key/skull for, look around for it or maybe you're supposed to go through a different door first.

This will make you completely invincible for a short period of time. Your entire screen will go white for the duration. When the screen starts flashing between white and normal colours, the power up is about to run out.
This causes you to go partially invisible for a short period of time. Enemy attacks will be less accurate while this power-up is in effect.
These goggles will light up darker areas for a short period of time, very handy when rooms are dimly lit or not even lit at all.
This will render temporarily you immune to damage while walking over acidic/toxic surfaces like lava and acid. Your screen will have a tint of green while this suit is in effect.
This page contains a list of all the weapons that you can encounter while playing Doom.
One of your two starting weapons. Even though you're a big guy, you'll need more than your fists to successfully take down all but the weakest of enemies. The power of your punch can be enhanced through Beserk power-ups.
This takes the place of your fist and carries a lot more stopping power, if only at very close range. This weapon can be used to take down the pink Demons without them being able to attack back, but bigger enemies will be able to get hits in even while you're trying to run through them with this weapon. This should only be used as a last resort.
Your other starting weapon. Handy for taking down some of the early enemies, but even the lowly Imps take several shots. Outside of the Former Humans and Former Human Sergeants, this weapon is not very useful. Luckily there should be more powerful weapons not too far into the game. Ammo for this weapon and the Chaingun are dropped by Former Humans.
One of the staple weapons. It's found very early on from the Former Human Sergeants and can kill the early enemies with ease. Even against some of the bigger enemies this weapon is a good fallback if you run out of bigger guns. Because of the spread this weapon is more deadly at close range than a long-distance firefight. Shotguns are dropped by Former Human Sergeants with between 1 and 4 ammo.
Take the pistol and up its firing rate a few times and that's basically the chaingun. It uses the same ammunition as the pistol but really, once you have this gun you'll never really look at the pistol again. The high rate of fire is able to delay or stop some enemies from firing altogether which is an added bonus for this weapon. Chainguns are dropped by Former Human Commandos.
The Rocket Launcher is one of the most useful and powerful weapons in the game. Able to kill all early enemies in one hit and everyone bar the 2 large bosses can be put down in no more than 5 or 6 rockets. The rockets cause splash damage which can hurt nearby enemies but also yourself if you are too close, so watch out you're not too close to the explosion yourself.
Think Chaingun but with plasma cells for ammunition and you have the Plasma Rifle. Firing blue balls of plasma at a very high rate this weapon is pretty powerful. Unlike in some games, there is no "overheating" of the weapon so you can keep firing until you deplete all 300 cells.
This is the most powerful weapon in the game, capable of dealing massive damage to anyone within range. The closer the enemy is to the impact point the more damage that will be dealt. One shot is enough to clear a large amount of weak enemies in one go. This weapon uses the same ammunition as the Plasma Rifle, but if you're only killing a few enemies at a time then you're best off using that weapon because this one has a long recharge time and uses 40 cells per shot.
