That is true. It's easy to forget with your limited arsenal.

Tonfa is a more interesting weapon than a Crowbar by so large a margin that the comparison is essentially pointless. Change my mind.

Very much agree. It ties in with the "Night shift" theme, and like you said it's a more interesting weapon.

A greatsword is a far better weapon than any of the mentioned ones.

But in all seriousness, I agree that the baton just fits in with the theme of the mod.
It also adds to the feeling of helplessness.
A knife or a machete can easily cut through the target and the crowbar can cause anything to explode into gore.
Meanwhile a baton is more designed for stunning than killing.

And honestly, knives, machetes and crowbars are just fairly common to see in games as melee options.
Meanwhile I am yet to see a game where a baton is the main melee weapon. (games with multiple weapons don't count)

The only one's I can think of are Watch_Dogs and Ion Fury. That's about it.

Baton was in stunning Cry Of Fear, but there was an opportunity to have other grip, that usual.

I wanted to add a Tactical Axe as an option (potetobloke ripped one), but it doesn't actually match too.

In the meantime, Here is a video by A Heretic's Doom! Since the mod is compatible with Chex Quest, he gave it a run, and i am very happy you are all liking!

Thank you!!! I hope you keep enjoying it, and yes, Shut Up And Bleed, Harder Event and Hellkrieger had a big slice of inspiration in here!

;)

I have a texture pack in the works,and a monaterpack might definitely be necessary. Well, one step at a time!

Tonfa usage that immediately comes to mind for me is in the Yakuza series of games.

Since your kick already kind of does the role of "damaging melee attack", I'd re-iterate my earlier suggestion of a stun gun/short range taser. My idea is that it wouldn't deal damage (or if it does, the damage is negligible), but instead it would stun enemies. For balance reasons, perhaps it would either use ammo of it's own, so it isn't infinite, or it would have to passively recharge after stunning an enemy. Alongside this, it the effect could be determined by how much max health a monster has, so weaker enemies can be stunned, meanwhile monsters with Cyberdemon or Spider Mastermind levels of HP won't be effected.

I wish survival horror mods in Doom were made more often, this is really good. From the mad man that gave us Kriegsland I expected nothing less, looking forward for more of this.

Something I would personally like to see in a monster pack, is lower monster numbers, but higher monster strength. Maybe have their spawns tweakable like the ammo, just because stronger enemies in lower numbers really encapsulates survival horror, and keeps the enemies feeling threatening for longer
