Features include, but are not limited to:
-Revamped weapon animations
-Bloodstained boots and gloves
-Kicking any time, duke nukem style
-Detailed brightmaps for monsters and weapons alike
-Tons of creative weapon modes and altfires
-New enemy attacks
-Added visual variety in enemies and items
-Remade Demon Runes
-Returning features from early versions of brutal doom
-Extensive weapon developer support
-Almost every feature of Brutal Doom v21, with as reduced jank as possible
-Added the Meathook! Special action 2 now deploys the Super Shotgun's Meathook, a grappling hook that pulls you into enemies. The meathook can very quickly be retracted or deployed, if you want to use the ssg's original altfire instead
-Grenades now have individual ammo pools. Grenade drops from zombies are also now much more consistent and frequent. Grenades no longer replace other ammo types
-A handful of features from nashgore, such as the extra gib sounds and crushed gibs, have been added
-Needler rounds have been improved graphically
-The Hyper-Realism difficulty has been reworked. Hyper-Realism now behaves identically to realism, but with full monster health and multiplayer monster spawns
-The Unmaker now has a special action 2: [REDACTED]. This sends you flying through the air in real 6 degrees of freedom, destroying anyone in your path until you either hit a wall or run out of souls.
-Decoration replacements can now fully be toggled off. No more dehacked incompatibility issues!
-The revolver has been added! This gun sometimes replaces the shotgun. It packs a punch, tearing through multiple monsters, but has significant dropoff. Altfire fans the hammer, and it can also be dual wielded.
-The Spider Mastermind can climb on the ceiling, just like her children! She's also been given a grenade attack. You can fire these grenades from the mastermind chaingun as well.
-The cyberdemon's vertical attack has been reworked to be 100% consistent! No more getting sniped from a stray rocket fired by a cyberdemon you killed hours ago
-The player's cyberdemon rocket launcher's vertical attack has been reworked completely- You no longer need to aim it, simply fire and it will act like an air strike for the next monster you see. If none are in sight, you can fire a bunch and they will all fall at once next time you see a demon.
-Plasma grenades from the grenade launcher now explode significantly faster
-The bfg has been given a special action- The grabber! For a few seconds at a time you can grab monsters or projectiles. Main fire shoots whatever you're holding out, while altfire places it down. Enemy projectiles get considerable damage buffs when grabbed, while grabbed monsters act as a meatshield and turn against their own kind.
-Destroying frozen monsters now has some more graphical effects
-Archvile teleport toggle has been added to the menu
-Archviles now deploy flame walls when attacking. These make them a significantly greater threat. You can either try destroying them, or running around them. Be careful, if the archvile is too close the flame wall will trap you in place!
-Grabbing lost souls and barrels with the kick is now more consistent and has better range
-Blurspheres are much rarer
-Unmaker takes less ammo overall
-Freezebots are now immune to freeze damage
-The rifle bash can now perform fatalities, and knocks monsters back like the uppercut
-Rolling has been reworked to only require one button! HOld the direction you want to roll in, or don't press anything and you'll roll forward
-Tilt++ has been integrated
