DOOM 2016 Achievements Guide

1. E1M1 (25G) — Complete the first mission of the campaign.

2. Knee-Deep in the Dead (100G) — Complete the campaign on “I’m too Young to Die”, “Hurt Me Plenty”, “Ultra-Violence”, or “Nightmare”.

3. A Toe into Madness (10G) — Complete “The UAC” on Ultra-Nightmare.

You need to complete the first mission of the game, called “The UAC”, on Ultra Nightmare Difficulty. This is the hardest difficulty level in the game. The game is on the usual nightmare difficulty, but with a twist, if you die you go back to the beginning of the game! This makes completing this first mission hard, let alone the whole game. Thankfully, you just need to complete the first mission to unlock the “A Toe into Madness” achievement.

This video guide will show you how to finish “Mission 1: The UAC” on Ultra-Nightmare, the best route to take, and when to bait enemies. You will need to do a lot of baiting, as groups of enemies are very difficult to fight considering you die in 1 to 2 hits on this highest difficulty.

Secret Achievements:

29. Shoot it Until it Dies (25G) — Defeat the Cyberdemon.

Strategy Tips: The Cyberdemon is the first boss you fight in DOOM (2016). The fight has two phases, the first phase he has few attacks and will mainly use his gun and missile barrage. He will occasionally charge but it is easy to avoid.

The second phase however, it gets a little harder. He will seal you in a stone corridor and do an attack that you have to jump / crouch to avoid it. His other attacks will be similar to the first phase. The key to this fight is to keep moving at all times, don’t stop. The super shotgun is very good for this fight.

30. Outnumbered? No Problem (25G) — Defeat the Hell Guards.

Strategy Tips: The Hell Guards are the second boss in DOOM (2016). The first phase, you are fighting one of them. He’ll mainly use melee attacks, but he’ll have a few different attacks where he uses fire. Keep moving, and attacking after he does an attack. His shield makes it so you can’t damage him until after he has just attacked.

In the second phase, you’ll fight two of them. Use the same tactics as the first one. This time however, neither of them have shields. Just be careful as they like to spin around and use lots of melee attacks. It’s important to be on the move constantly.

31. Who’s Next? (25G) — Defeat the Spider Mastermind.

Strategy Tips: The Spider Mastermind is the final boss in the game. She is a fairly tough boss fight, even on normal. Her laser beam attacks are very difficult to avoid (however, it is similar to the Cyberdemon where you jump and crouch). Her brain is the weak point. Using shotguns does a lot of damage, but she will swing her arms at you when you do this and that causes a lot of damage.

When she throws bombs, stop shooting. Just focus on avoiding them. When she poisons the floor, its important to get up on the pillars. While she is doing this, you can hit her with plenty of hits off while she is poisoning the place. She will fire a beam at you after this, be very careful to avoid this as it does a ton of damage.

This video guide shows how to beat the Spider Mastermind boss fight:

32. Into the Unknown (15G) — Warp to Hell.

33. An Old Friend (30G) — Acquire the BFG.

Location: The BFG can be found in “Mission 8: A Brighter Tomorrow” after you meet Dr. Samuel Hayden in his office.

As you explore the weapons facility, you’ll find Dr. Peter’s corpse to use for accessing the ARC facility section called “BFG Lab Prime” where it is in development. Unfortunately the facility’s A.I. isn’t so easily fooled and detects you’re not him, causing laser defenses to appear. Taking out the laser beams’ power sources (with rockets) on the underside of their moving platform will make the lasers crash into the tablet below to reveal the BFG-9000!
