A mod by Yholl and SoloSpaghetti
Changed the way the Assault Rifle and Burst Cannon assemblies work, to make them more useful. No more clicking! These are great for damage to ammo ratios.
Assault Rifles do 3x damage, but fire slowly and with great accuracy. Projectiles do 2x damage, and move extremely fast.
Burst Cannons do 2x damage, but fire slowly and not with much accuracy. Projectiles do 1.5x damage, and move slightly faster than normal.
Altered the Laser Rifle and Blaster to do Xd7 damage, giving them almost projectile levels of damage, while still being hitscan.
Fixed the Particle Beam Cannon using double ammo on it's first shot.
Added the Particle Beam Cannon to the list of stuff in the Tracking Map.
|This is currently a beta release|
Please feel free to give me your thoughts on anything in the game, whether it's bugs, balance or suggestions, so I can refine it into something really fun.
The Zoom key has been renamed to indicate it is used to drop stuff. Be sure to bind a key to it.
- -= LATEST NEWS =-
It's finally out! Goddamn this took a ton of effort, so many annoying and repetitive things to do.
- -= DESCRIPTION =-
This mod was inspired by the fantastic Doom Roguelike made by Kornel Kisielewicz. While playing DoomRL, I felt that some of the mechanics used in it could be brought over and incorporated into Doom, and started brainstorming for months on exactly how to go about it using what I know of Zdoom DECORATE coding. The end result is great for blasting through a megawad with a friend, supporting each other with each classes unique abilities and having something to work towards past just finding the BFG9000. All the glorious weaponry from DoomRL makes an appearance here, except the ones I haven't made yet. They aren't here. I hope you enjoy this mod as much as I have (mostly) enjoyed coding it. (Rocket launcher. NEVER AGAIN.)
If you enjoyed this mod, and you've played roguelikes before, or are interested in trying one, head over to the DoomRL site and try it out for yourself. Easily one of the easiest RLs to get into, but by no means the easiest to win!
DoomRL Arsenal features such things as...
- -= NEW WEAPON SYSTEM! =-
You'll have to make some hard choices, though, as you can only carry 6 weapons at any time. Advanced functions will tell you what keys you need to press, but the Zoom key (Which has been renamed to Drop Item.) functions as a Drop key instead of a, well, zoom key. Drop weapons or modpacks with it, so you can be sure to carry only what you want with you. Press Zoom twice to drop a weapon, as a precaution against accidentally dropping a valuable weapon.
I'd like to thank Wildweasel for his ww-magop.wad and it's weapon mechanic, which I based this system off of.
Most weapons that appear in this mod are based off the DoomRL weapons, but are not perfect reproductions. In fact, some weapons are entirely different altogether! Weapons also now have magazines, requiring reloading, and may also be slower or less accurate than standard Doom weapons. Don't worry, because the next feature more than makes up for it!
- -= NEW ARMOR AND BOOTS SYSTEM! =-
Instead of the normal Doom armor mechanics, it's been revamped to a whole new level of awesome. You can carry one armor and one set of boots in your inventory at a time, in addition to any you are currently wearing, and you can drop and change any of these at any moment! Bear in mind that due to code limitations, any non-indestructible armors you stop wearing will be destroyed.
To unequip a currently worn armor or set of boots, there are two commands at the bottom of the keybinds list. Bind a key to them.
Simply press the appropriate key twice to remove your currently worn armor or boots.
Did I mention there's tons of new armors ingame for you to find? Boots too. Exotics and assemblies and uniques! Unfortunately, also due to limitations, you cannot mod boots at all, and can only mod armors with an Onyx modpack, so any assemblies you find will be premade in levels. These new armors protection against different types of damage too, so wear the ones you think are best for the moment! A Plasma Shield won't help you in a room full of Imps!
99% of the armors and boots you see here were made by the super talented SoloSpaghetti, who is the glorious Blacksmith of DoomRL Arsenal. He's amazing.
- -= SET BONUSES! =-
- -= MODPACKS! =-
When using a modpack, the first use selects the modpack for use. When selected, pressing Zoom will drop it, pressing Use Inventory again will apply it to the current weapon, and switching to a different weapon will cancel.
Thanks to HellCattX for his awesome ammopile, which I used as a base for the modpacks.

There are even secrets to the exotic modpacks that few know of...
- -= ASSEMBLIES =-
When you apply the last modpack in a correct combination, it will ask you if you want to assemble it with the Fire button, or cancel with Altfire. An assembly is not always an upgrade, so sometimes you may not want to assemble something.
Here is an example of weapon modding and assembly.
Applying two Power Modpacks to the Shotgun...
Given the right combination for an assembly, the game asks for confirmation...
Huzzah! Elephant Gun! Instead of firing 7 pellets, the Elephant Gun fires a single shot with all the force of 7!
I only used two mods to assemble that gun, so it can have two more applied to it. More accuracy and faster reloads now!
- -= CLASSES =-

Passive: Powerups last 50% longer.

Removed armor and boot unequip items and moved them to keybinds.
Applied colored text to all messages for weapons, armors, boots and modpacks. This took a while.
Added Armor Mod Packs, which can alter an armor (i.e. Green/Security) to one of the other two variant colors. Works on all armors that are like that.
Completely redid the charge system of the Nuclear BFGs. They are now completely player input friendly, and some were improved as well.
Made modpacks fullbright so that you can always see them, even in pitch darkness.
Cerberus Armor takes less damage from most damage sources, so it lasts longer.

Added the missing secret assemblies. There's a lot of them. Look for computer maps to find the recipes!
Vastly improved the Jackhammer. Two of it's secret modes were changed to be more useful and interesting as well.

Metric bitchton of bugfixes. LOOK AT THAT NO-ERROR LOADING SCREEN
- Armors, armors, everywhere. Different ones are good for different things. Learn and enjoy! To remove an armor, you have a Remove Armor item alongside your modpacks. Bear in mind this will destroy any non-indestructible armor, due to hardcoded limitations.
Added the final missing exotic modpack. If you have ever played (or observed with your eye-face) DoomRL, you know which one this is, and what it's used for. I'll give you a hint, starts with O, ends with nyx.

- Doubled the number of unique weapons in the game. No, I'm not telling you what they are. Thanks to torridGristle and Sgt. Shivers for several of them.
Added the UAC Supply Crate, which contains random items. Opening one as a Technician gives you a higher chance at rare items, because science.
Stopped demons hearing your thoughts whenever you pressed altfire on guns.
Fixed all weapon pickups suddenly deciding to make the wrong noise for no reason. This should also fix the pickup sounds for GZDoom.
Unique weapons no longer respawn. (I couldn't fix this back when I wanted to, because +INVENTORY.NEVERRESPAWN wasn't a thing yet.)
Scout now does 5x damage with hitscan pistols.
Technician can now carry 8 modpacks at once.
Discovered Ammochain was demented and give you a free bullet the first time you fired it. I have no idea what I was thinking when I made it in this bizarre fashion. It's horrible.
Made the nano regeneration of ammo less painful for me to work around in the future. I have no idea why I even did it like that in the first place.
Revamped the test map for better placement of weapons, and also placed something there that will make you think twice about trespassing.

Initial Beta Release
- Hope this goes well...
- -= KNOWN ISSUES =-
When you drop a weapon, it loses every modpack that has been placed on it. It is technically possible for me to fix this. Technically. But I would die, both physically and mentally, so that will not be happening, sorry.

DoomRL Monster Pack
You need a dev build of ZDoom to run this. Get the latest version here.
- -= DESCRIPTION =-
About half of the Nightmare enemies are done, and will appear ingame to make you suffer. The ones that have not yet been completed obviously do not spawn. Same goes for Cybernetic enemies.
The extra difficulties currently do not work properly, due to the enemies that need to spawn not actually existing. You can play it, but the missing enemies will be replaced by stock Doom enemies, rather than my altered ones.
And of course, finishing the game will give you my custom CastCall, which will show all the enemies currently ingame.
There are quite a few placeholder sprites in the wad currently. The Nightmare Demon, Former Captain with Plasma Rifle, and Elite Former Humans with the Combat Pistol and Handcannon are all placeholder sprites, and will be changed.
Also, when more complete there will be two versions of this pack. This current one is vanilla-compatible, and will work with other weapon packs just fine. Later, I'll make a version that has enemies dropping specific DoomRL weapons, to use alongside Arsenal..
- -= CHANGELOG =-
- Fixed up some annoying bugs, like the arguing Cyberdemons and looping miniguns, nothing fancy.
- A basic release for people to give feedback on the behaviours of the monsters already made.
