Brutal Doom is a mod for Zandronum and GZDoom that attempts to make Doom faster paced, harder, and much, much, a thousand times gorier and more violent. It's made to work with any IWAD, and any megawad or maps that doesn't contains custom weapons or monsters.
- Tons of new Death animations for all enemies. You can cut their limbs, cut them in half with chainsaw or minigun, melt them with plasma, Everything can be gibbed, there are even Xdeath states for large enemies like Barons and Mancubus, and much more. You can also shoot their dead bodies, or severed limbs, and keep brutalizing them even after their deaths. You can also use the quick-kick ability to kick their severed heads and limbs away and play bloody soccer.
- Possibility of headshoots for most enemies. You can do extra damage shooting at their heads with small firearms like the Rifle, or completely blow-up their heads with a higher firepower weapon such a shotgun or minigun.
- Flares for decoration and projectiles. You will fell like you were playing in the Doomsday Engine.
- 3D bloodspots for OpenGL users that can paint the ground and ceiling with the blood of your enemies.
- You can RIP AND TEAR an enemy if you kill him with punches while under effect of a berserk. (Also knows as Fatalities)
- If you shot an enemy so close, blood will splash on the screen.
- You can paint the chainsaw with blood.
A new balance of weapons and gameplay
All weapons and enemies gained a new balance. There are no more weapons that gets obsolete after you find new ones like in Vanila Doom. (Fists that gets outclassed by Chainsaw, Pistol that gets outclassed by the Chaingun, or Shotgun that gets outclassed by the SSG). Also, there are no more low-threat enemies. Gameplay is much harder and faster. In a short resume: You have more powerful weapons that can kill enemies twice as fast, but enemies have more powerful attacks and can kill you twice as fast too, creating the "Brutal Gameplay".
Here you can see a detailed list of what changes in the gameplay:
Fists are very deadly and extremely useful in Brutal Doom. The normal fire mode is a fast jab that deals minor damage, but it's good to kill zombies due it's speed. The alt fire is a slower but more powerful hook, that can even kill demons and imps with a single punch in the face, but it has a large delay. After you get the berserk pack and gain super strength, you can perform third person executions like in the Doom Comics (RIP AND TEAR mode), or just gib enemies away (Smash mode). Press the reload button to change execution modes.
- Fists are silent, and can kill enemies without alerting the nearby ones. Use the alt fire when attacking a zombie or imp from behind, and you will perform a stealth execution.
- While under the effects of berserk, you can grab barrels, and throw them at enemies like grenades. Just punch a barrel to grab it. Also, you can use the alt-fire to drop the barrel in front of you, and set up barrel traps.
The Chainsaw deals twice as much damage than in Vanilla Doom, but it takes one second to start firing. It's a nice weapon to mow down large groups of imps or demons coming in front of you, but if you are going to take scattered small groups, use the fists with alt fire, because the chainsaw will make you stuck while you are slashing the target, turning you into a vulnerable target to others that are behind.
The pea shooter is gone forever, and the Combat Rifle now takes it's place. I always wondered why does the player sprites carries a rifle, but you don't have it in-game, and the fact that zombies have rifle too, but you can't grab it after their deaths. Unlike the pistol that is a completely useless weapon, this one has a good fire rate, and it's the weapon with the best accuracy in the whole mod. Can easily kill zombies and even imps with one or two headshoots. A skilled player can even kill Mancubus and Hell Knights with headshoots from a long distance with it. Alt-fire allows you to aim down the sights, providing better accuracy, but killing some of the field of view. Needs to reload after 20 shoots.
Don't you always wondered why does the Shotgun in Vanilla Doom fires 7 pellets per shoot, while the SSG fires 10 from each barrel, even if they use the same ammo? Yeah, that's pretty weird. But in Brutal Doom, the shotgun actually fires 10 pellets like the SSG does, and is more accurate. It's a nice weapon to take down imps, demons, cacodemons and lost souls from a safe distance. Needs to reload after 12 shoots.
The Super Shotgun now has a reason to be called "Super". It can deal double damage and turn enemies in a bloody mess if fired from point-blank range. To compensate this damage upgrade, it has a longer reload time.
The Alt Fire mode allows you to fire one barrel at time. It has bonus accuracy, but doesn't deals the extra damage at point-blank range.
Minigun replaces the Chaingun. It fires 50% faster than the Vanilla Chaingun, but needs cool down for a few seconds before shooting again. Due this cool down, it's not suitable to kill single zombies or imps, but to mow down large groups, and suppress medium and large enemies. It has an alt-fire mode that will keep the barrels spinning and fire 50% faster than in the normal fire mode, and without needing to wait until the barrels stop rotating to fire again. But this mode has a large recoil, and will not allow you to move while doing it.
Rocket Launcher Fires slower than the Vanilla's one, but each rocket deals 50% more damage to it's target. All enemies have Xdeath animations when killed by a rocket. It is supplied by a large rotatory 6 rounds barrel. Needs to reload after 6 shots.
Plasma Gun still has the same fire rate, but now deals some splash damage, and is much better to kill large crowds of enemies. It has an alt fire mode that will overcharge and fires many projectiles at the same time (aka Plasma Shotgun). It deals almost as much damage as two rockets, but it requires a lot of time to make the weapon cool down. This fire mod is better used in situations when you are behind cover and under heavy fire, and needs to quickly leave the cover, shoot something, and get back to cover again before getting your ass kicked. Needs to reload after 100 shots.
BFG9000 is still almost the same weapon, except by the fact that it's ball will deal double damage, and some minor splash damage.
Bloodier and Gorier! Gibs! Gibs everywhere! You can paint the walls, floor, and ceiling with blood.
Your head asplode! Almost every enemy (exept Cacodemon, Lost Soul, Demon, and Pain Elemental) have new hitboxes for their heads. You can perform headshots to deal more damage, and cause more brutal and bloody deaths. Shoot at heads to explode them, and see brains, teeth, eyes, and blood flying all over the place.
Amazing effects! Particles, flares, and even shadows! You will fell like you were playing in the Doomsday engine.
RIP AND TEAR!. After you find a Berserk pack, killing enemies with a punch will perform 3rd person executions just like in the Doom Comics. By doing such executions, you gain bonus health as a reward.
Makes blood and most gore pieces lasts for 25 seconds, and disappear after that. Greatly increases performance. obligatory add-on for multiplayer games.
When you are in the "Danger" state, with health bellow 30, it makes health regenerate by 1 per second until you get with 30 health. Some people suggested me to add this as a main feature, but I preferred to make it as a separated module.

A compilation of many Doom and Doom 2 music remixes that really sets the tone of this mod.
For years, many people requested the pistol to be avaliable on Brutal Doom. But, in order to dont break the balance of weapons, I decided to make the pistol a separated weapon. This attachment will replace the Assault Rifle by a pistol, and will make zombies drop clips instead rifles.
At the 0.16 development, I have planned to replace some gib sprites to be made of real pictures of actual dead people. This caused a lot of controversy, and many people stated that it is "crossing the line" even for a violence mod.
Plus some people said that the high resolution sprites of pieces of smashed brains doesn't looks good with doom's pixelated sprites. Also, I noticed that it can cause some lag if these sprites are spawned in high volumedue the resolution of the sprites. So, I decided to make it a separated module.
Screen Effects and Cracks Removal
Removes all screen cracks and driping blood that usually spawns in the Marine's visor. Most people (including me) likes these effects a lot, but some people dont, and with this add-on, they can improve their personal Brutal Doom experience.

- MUCH improved the blood pool sprites for Software Rendering users.
- Improved deaths when killing enemies with SSG/Smash Mode Berserk Punches
- Improved stealth kill detections. Now if you punch a non-alerted zombie or imp from behind, it will always perform the stealth kill.
- Added many extra fatalities for almost all monsters, including the Revenant, Cacodemon, and Demon.
- Revenant Rocket Launcher is full working. Use a Chainsaw to rip the weapon from a dead body, or explode it's chest if you already gibed him with the Rocket Launcher or BFG.
- Flame Cannons can be ripped from the Mancubus corpse with the chainsaw (Only if the body was not burned with plasma)
- *** (Die Hard Bug Fixed) *** Fixed an old bug during fatalities that could make the camera script don't initialize during the execution animation
- *** (Die Hard Bug Fixed) *** Added a mini health regeneration that will never let the player's health fall to 1. So, the player has a minimum health of 2, to prevent deaths caused by blood on screen on effects.
- A new sprite for Chainsaw that looks like the original one, but much smoother.
- BFG got it's old splash damage radius from earlier versions restored, but this will only deal damage to player if it hits a wall or the ground or ceiling. Hiting enemies will only cause damage to the player if it's like 1 metter of distance from the monster. Plus, the weapon got a visual upgrade (Now you have a reason to call it the BIG Fucking Gun)
- Plasma splash damage will only harm the player when hitting a wall or floor/ceiling.
- New fire particles for torches, burning barrels, and other fire sources.
- New sprites for candles and candelabras.
- Polished the Fuck Yourself hand sprite.
- New flares.
- Many player death animations were polished.
- Now Revenants can perform fatalities on players. (by Gothic)
- Polished the sprites for zombieman and imp fatalities.
- New futuristic-looking sprites for Rifle and Shotgun (by Mike12)
- New Plasma Deaths to some monsters (by Mike12)
- *** (Die Hard Bug Fixed) *** Invulnerability Sphere will not loose it's effects after performing a fatality (Thanks to jpalomo for finding the solution.)
- Added new animations for players when jumping/falling from heights, or selecting the fists.
- Players will not keep looping the spawn animations when holding a barrel, or have health under 25.
- 3D models for water splashes that makes it look more realistic.
- Nerfed plasma headshots.
- Added a bit more blood to the Xdeath gibs, so it won't look too much clean like before.
- *** (Die Hard Bug Fixed) *** Fixed a bug with weapons reloading infinitely
- New fatality can be performed on ArchViles.
- Added an alt-fire mode while carring the barrels that will just drop them. Nice to set up traps.
- Fixed a bug with the Mancubus and Arachnotron deaths when getting killed by a Demon.
- New gfx effects when blood splatters in the screen.
- Imps will not jump at the players if they are just too close.
- Fixed misaligned flares for projectiles.
- Greatly improved some sound effects.
- Cyberdemons and Masterminds will now deal radius damage after they explode.
- Improved the looks of the Hellknight/Baron green fireball.
- Compressed some .wav files into .oggs and reduced the filesize by 3mb
- Removed the titlepic and music.
- Improved the sprites used for the flying blood when hitting enemies with firearms, and driping blood from the ceiling and hanging bodies is looking more realistic and nastier.
- Hanging bodies will leave large blood pools under them.
- Included a new weapon: The Mancubus Flame Cannon. But to get this weapon, since it is attached to the mancubus arm, you don't need to just kill him, you must hit him so hard, that the arm gets amputated, so you can grab it. So, a Rocket Launcher or BFG is required for this job. It uses it's own ammo, and to get more, you need to amputate more mancubus arms to refill it's ammo.
- Fixed forever the bug of blood splats showing up in the sky when shooting enemies that are too close of it.
- Included 3D models for the bullet tracers. They are looking so much more real now. (Thanks to Revilution for creating this model). But these models only shows up in OpenGL. If you are playing in software, you will still see the old sprites.
- Remade the Xdeath gibs. It looks more "clean" now, because there is less blood, and now all gibing pieces have rotating animations. This reduces the hardware requirement, and makes the act of exploding enemies with the Rocket Launcher much more satisfactory than it ever was.
- Polished some death sprites.
- Made Shotgunners deal more damage, and Chaingunners and Zombiemen have better accuracy.
- Included new animations for Zombiemen and Shotgunners reloading states.
- Many gib pieces such as limbs and legs can be kicked away. Now you can play soccer with zombie heads just like in Blood.
- New death animations added for all enemies when killing them with the Flame Cannon.
- New alternate fatalities on Shotgunner and Chaingunner.
- Added new death animations when killing zombies and imps with the minigun in a Fallout 1-2 style. First, you will remove their arms, then explode their heads, then explode their chest, while they are still alive. Thanks to Mike12 for creating these sprites.
- Removed the alt grenade attack from the Cyberdemon, and the BFG from the Mastermind. In compensation, they are much more vicious. The Cyberdemon will fire 6 rockets instead 3, and now, he can predicate player movement, and the Mastermind fires large explosive shells instead normal bullets.
- General reduction of smoke and blood effects. Now the game will run much smoother in old computers.
- Fixed a bug in Skulltag causing enemy zombies and friendly marines to desync during the fire animation when playing online. (This bug was causing the server understand that the monster is staying in a position and shooting against players, while clients could see the monster roaming around, but unable to shot it)
- Gore decorations (like dead marines, gibed corpses, etc.) now have large blood pools around them, and if they are close a wall, it wil generate blood decals at nearby walls at game start, giving the level a gorier and bloodier aspect. (I suggest turning your cl_maxdecals to 99999, so, the decals spawned by decorative gib piles don't vanish after some time)
- After killing any enemy, a large blood pool will form under it, and unlike the small ones, this one will last forever. (This feature and the above are the reasons for calling this version the "Bloodier and Gorier".)
- Now, all small monsters can be used as Meat Shields: The Zombiemen, the Shotgunguys, and the Imps. To use a monster as a Meat Shield, first you need a Berserk Pack. Then, when one of the aforementioned monsters gets grievously wounded (unable to attack, unable to move/crawling, and bleeding to death), punch him in the chest. Also, now the Meat Shield still can absorb damage when you are firing, but only damage that comes from the left flank. Also, Meatshields now can be destroyed if they absorb too much damage.
- Two new fatalities included: Now, fatalities can be performed against Arachnotrons, and other players in a Deathmatch game.
- Fixed a bug with Archvile dealing only 10 damage per attack. Now it can deal up to 80.
- Now the players can salute each other in Multiplayer pressing Z or X (each of one is a different animation). Also, if you press Z or X during a fatality execution, you will make a "victory pose" right after the fatality is concluded, while the camera still is in 3rd person.)
- Lots of new special effects for monster projectiles. A new animation for the Baron of Hell when he uses his special triple ball attack.
- Reduced smoke from weapons, and many projectiles and effects, to improve framerate in old computers.
- Reduced Minigun's recoil. It will work better now, both in singleplayer and multiplayer.
- When using Minigun's Alt-Fire, accuracy will be increased by 40%.
- Seems like the bug causing captured Marines to be executed by monsters before the player could see them returned in 0.10b, but now it's fixed again
- Fixed bugs regarding SSG infinite ammo.
- Now the SSG alt fire is more stable to use. Holding the alt fire button won't fire both barrels in a row. You must release the alt fire after shooting the first barrel in order to shoot the second. (Suggested by Vaecrius)
- Imps are not randomly killing themselves with their fireballs anymore.
- I think I am in the right course to fix the blood pools on water. I have not completely fixed it, but there is much less blood on water now than before.
- Shooting a Baron of Hell/Hell Knight won't leave green blood splats behind it anymore.
- Removed the red lines on pain effect.
- Changed sprite for Rifle Pick-up (Thanks to SamVision)
- Some fatalities are performed faster.
- Reduced the amounts of blood in some fatalities so the player can now see what is happening
- Better blood texture for blood pools (By Dick Socrates)
-The deaths with Super Shotgun at point-blank range are no more the same as Xdeath ones. Now the killed monster will turn into red sauce like in Vanilla Doom, but lots of blood and meat pieces will be sprayed behind it. Much like the Xdeaths in Painkiller. Also, if there is a wall behind it, the whole wall will get painted in red. I'm sure that it will make everyone fell that killing enemies with SSG at point-blank range much more satisfactory.
-And now, there are stealth kills. You can perform a stealth kill by attacking an imp/zombie with melee attacks from behind breaking it's neck if he still don't noticed you. You don't need Berserk pack to perform it.
-Imps can be used as meat shields. When you get a imp injured with his guts out, if you are under the Berserk effect, punch his body (not his head, or it will kill him), and you will able to use him as a shield. I plan adding this feature to new monsters in the future.
- Fixed the old "Emo Monsters" bug, that caused many enemies to commit suicide when firing at a high target, by shooting their own heads.
- Replaced the alternate Zombieman Fatality, plus, added alternate fatalities for Imp and ShotgunGuy.
- Improved smoke and explosion particles.
- Now, Rocket Launcher will reload every 6 shoots.
- Shotgun reload can be stoped by kicking.
- All bugs concerning the Fatalities have been fixed. I have tested all of them, with different ammounts of health, and all of them are working properly, and 3rd person camera stuck bug doesnt happens anymore. The only problem is, when you perform a fatality on health under 30, sometimes there is a small delay for the fatality to start, This seems to be unfixable at this momment, but even late, it never fails.
- Changed the Spectre's appearence: Now, he looks like a stealth monster, but not totally invisible; you can still see his eyes when he is not attacking/getting hit.
- Reduced the volume of splash and torch fire sounds.
- Revenants' alt combo attack will not cause splash damage anymore. (It was overpower, and often causing them to commit suicide)
- New boss balance: Cyberdemons can be killed by 18 direct rocket hits in it's breast/head, and Spider Mastermind can be killed by 16 rockets at it's brain, but shooting a Spider Mastermind's chasis is useless now, it will deal insignificant damage with any weapon (exept BFG).
- Fixed a bug that could make ceiling bloodspots get stuck in middle air if spawned under a moving ceiling.
- Added more animation sequences for the fatality on Mancubus.
- Polished many weapons, including the secret MP40.
- Polished all headshot animations. Now, headshots are looking way more satisfactiable.
- Randomized the HeadOnStick with different heads.
- Now you can shoot the skulls in the pole with skulls, but unlike Beautiful Doom that has a fix sequence, you can shoot any skull.
- Added body psychs (sort of it). Kick/punch a dead zombieman corpse to animate it.
- Remade the sprites holding the Lost Soul using the Blood Skullstaff sprites. Also, if you change weapons while holding a it, Doomguy will smash the Lost Soul with his hand.
- Imps are more agressive. Now they will jump to attack players with more brutality when they are in the melee range. Imps can also now perform fatalities on players/Marines when hitting the whole melee combo attack.
- Replaced Invisibility Sphere by rescuable Marines. To rescue a marine, just punch/kick him, and he will join you. Warning: When enemies spots you, they will imediatly attemp to execute any nearby captured marine before you can rescue him.
I have tryed everything to make this item more useful, but I failed. I think this is a better addition to gameplay than a dumb item that makes enemies spread their projectile attacks increasing the chance of hitting you if you are sidestrafing them. Also, the spheres were placed in spots that now will create some interesting situations, almost cutscenes, like in E1m7 on UV, you look through the window, and see a bunch of shootgunners executing a Marine. Or Like in E2M5, there is a captured marine that triggers an ambush if you try to get him, like if the hellspawn let the poor bastard live just to use him to get you.
- Fixed the old bug causing players to get damaged by blood.
- Blood will splat and flow over the screen when shooting enemies so close.
- Shotgun won't auto-reload anymore.
- Added screen damage effects when player gets hit by different damage types.
- Fixed the bug with Megaspheres and Soulspheres not adding to player's health.
- Player can store the captured Lost Soul for later use when switching weapons again.
- Problems with game crashing after loading, and map-placed Berserks not showing up after loading a game seems to be solved (I hope!).
- Kicks have changed. Now, they work more as a tactical attack, dealing less damage, but pushing enemies away. Zombiemen and Shotgunners are knocked down (but not killed) by kicks, and stay a short time completely out of action.
- Rifle won't have to reload at game start.
- Fixed the Old status bar for good. DONT USE THE OLDER FIXING PATCH NOW.
- Fatalities for Baron of Hell and Hell Knight.
- While on Berserk, Barrels can be grabbed and tossed at enemies.
- Friendly marines won't hurt you.
- Polished Chaingunguy's fatality.
- Rifle will be semi-automatic again. It's just pointless to have a full-auto starting weapon. It's Doom, not MW2. The good thing about it, is if you press the trigger real fast, you can fire faster than before.
- Increasing the time that head hitboxes lasts. I was sometimes shooting at zombie heads, and not hiting them, but now it is fixed for good.

- Reverted the Rocket Launcher's Fire Rate and damage to original.
- Added the same ludicrous ammounts of blood of the early first versions. (Like, if you fire a shotgun into a Demon, it will be like a small waterfall of blood).
- Polished lots of death sprites that were looking MSPaintish (Highly noticeable on Chaingunner , Shotgunner, and Imp.)
- Fixed lamps vanishing when fired on.
- Added corspe variations for the starting dead bodies.
- Added a fatality variation to the zombieman's fatality. (There will be 50% of performing the original one, and 50% of the new one)
- The most significant bugfix so far. Kicking now works, fixed bugs with Plasma Gun not firing sometimes even if it has ammo and many others.
- General sprite improvement. Most gib parts are remade, new death animations, better weapons, better explosions, and lots of other stuff.
- Now you can perform 3 new fatalities: On Chaingunners, Demons, and Lost Souls.
- Player will start to bleed, unable to run, and see red flashes in the screen health gets bellow 35 until he can get himself healed.

- The Aiming System Alt-Fire for Shotgun was replaced by the Dragonbreath's Incendiary Shells. These shells can fire the pellets + a flame wave that acts like a short flamethrower.

- Fists are faster, and the alt fire was replaced by a low but very powerfull hook. You can still kick enemies with the Quick Kick bind anyway.

Before playing, you MUST BE SURE of:
1 - Please, use Open GL mode to properly show the new special effects and taste the full Brutal Doom experience.
2 - In the Open GL settings, set your Adjust Sprite Clipping to Always (Prevents things from getting half in the ground)
3 - In your display options, make sure your deathcam is on! (So you can see the amazing new player deaths)
4 - Read the guide that comes in the readme text.
- If the 3D bloodpools aren't showing up, even if you are using Open_GL, open your console and type "gl_use_models 1"
- If the bloodpools are rendering in a weird way, in the Open GL settings, set the Smooth Sprite Edges to Off
- If your framerate is low, type "gl_use_models 0" to hide the bloodpool 3D models. This helps a lot on old computers.
