In this guide on Doom Eternal we will see which are the best modifications for each weapon in the game, and in which situations we can make the most of them

Doom Eternal is finally among us, and this time to better face the various infernal enemies we will have to know how to make the most of every resource at our disposal. So let's see in this guide what the best modifications for each weapon of id Software's highly anticipated shooter, and when you should use them.


How to choose the modifications for the weapon

In Doom Eternal the changes can change the functioning of the weapons even in a drastic way, also modifying therefore the context in which they will excel. The choice of modification depends primarily on your personal taste, but there are some that are simply better. Some modification can indeed cover up the weaknesses of the weapon, and some others can further improve already good aspects. What makes the choice even more important is the fact that the points needed to unlock these mods aren't found very often.


Combat Shotgun - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

This is the first weapon we get in the game, and we will therefore find ourselves using it very often. The recommended upgrade for this weapon is Sticky Bombs. With this modification we will be able to do damage even from a distance, often eliminating different groups of enemies with a single shot. Another situation in which this upgrade will be comfortable is in facing the Cacodemons, shooting them in their open mouths.

Heavy Cannon - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

Each enemy has its own weaknesses, and there is nothing better than this weapon with the modification Precision Viewfinder to hit them with precision. As a demonstration of this, in the tutorial in which the game introduces us to the weak points, it will make us use the Heavy Cannon. By hitting the weak points, we can kill in one fell swoop most of the demons, although for controller gamers it could be quite difficult.



Plasma Rifle - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

This weapon is already very useful as it is the only one capable of easily destroy enemy shields. To make it even more useful we can use the Glowing Flare, which will allow us to discharge a powerful heat stroke around us. The shot will charge when firing, and we can then activate it by doing massive damage to even the strongest enemies.

Rocket Launcher - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

For this weapon the recommended modification is the Search Burst, which will allow us to launch well three rockets at the same time. This means that the already low ammo of the weapon will run out even faster, but against bosses or other very powerful enemies the damage it will do will be truly enormous. 

Double Diet - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

One of the funniest weapons to use in the game, the Double Shot can also become a lot more useful thanks to the modification Butcher's Hook. This is the only modification available, and it will act as a kind of grappling hook to take us almost instantly to enemies in the distance. There will be nothing more satisfying then to destroy with the double an enemy on which we have just slammed.

Ballista - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

This is the closest weapon in the game to a sniper rifle, and as such, its best modification requires a lot of precision. THE'Arbalest it will allow us to fire a single very powerful explosive projectile, perfect for taking down the most powerful demons.


Gatling gun - Doom Eternal: guide to the best mods for each weapon

This weapon is already capable of doing a lot of damage in a short time, but with the modification Mobile Turret we will be able to increase both damage and rate of fire. The only sacrifice to be made will be in mobility, but finding a good position this weapon will also be great for bosses and other very powerful demons.
