DOOM 2016 Weapons
Tip: Hold the Triangle button on PS4 or the Y button on Xbox One/PC to activate the Weapon Selection Wheel and choose from all of your available weapons.
How to find missing Weapons?:
• Explore hidden rooms & Classic DOOM map areas: These will have a hidden lever / switch nearby that you must pull to open up the weapon door to the room. Some rooms will have a collectible or item you must pick up to get the weapon.
• Collectibles: There are two UAC Marineguy collectibles in every mission of the story Campaign Mode. – The trick to finding these collectable action figures quickly is to max out the Area-Scanning Technology category of the Praetor Suit! The “Full View” upgrade you get from doing that allows you to immediately see where all Collectibles are on the map. With that you can load up the mission you’re missing the Collectible in at any time via chapter select, and see its exact location right from the start, so you don’t go on a wild goose chase through the level.
This Area-Scanning Technology shows all Collectible locations, but it doesn’t specifically show the Weapon locations the UAC Marineguy dolls are found in. – Most weapons are located alongside many of those UAC Marineguy dolls with similar weapon-esque names, some weapons don’t have any of those items there but a gun instead, so it can be a bit annoying to find some of the weapons when there’s no indication as to where they are (which is why our videos will show each weapon location).
Collectible Progression Tip: Does the game save your weapons progress? Yes, all weapons you find are immediately saved after picking them up, so you do not need to reach the next checkpoint (not even if you die afterwards).
Note: You have successfully obtained a weapon when you pick it up and the on-screen text reads “Codex Entry Acquired” for the weapon in question.
Sidenote: Weapon Mods are covered in the Field Drones guide.
