The Doomguy is an extremely robust and highly effective warrior who can smash by concrete partitions, rip off limbs and survive falls that will kill most people. However he can’t break a window. Why is that?

Final night time I waited patiently for Doom Everlasting to unlock. The second I may, I jumped in and began enjoying. I’m not writing a evaluate or something, however after a couple of hours, I can fortunately say it’s great and feels simply pretty much as good as Doom(2016), which was certainly one of my favourite video games of 2016. So I’m completely satisfied and digging every part up to now, however I’m a bit confused about this window factor.

All through the primary few hours, I’ve already charged and tackled my approach by effectively over a dozen concrete and stone partitions. I’ve additionally punch massive steel locks, shattering them with a single hit. However home windows, of any sort, are unbreakable.

I perceive that not all home windows ought to or could be breakable. Home windows on my floating area fortress are first off, most likely not glass, and second off, one thing the builders can’t enable gamers to interrupt. I obtained it. Make sense. That’s honest.

Nevertheless, why can’t I break this flimsy piece of glass?

It’s small, it’s surrounded on all sides by playable area, so if the participant broke it they may stroll by and it wouldn’t ship them to their dying or some untextured void. But, regardless of what number of occasions I punch it, this small window received’t shatter. In reality, no glass shatters within the universe of Doom.

Stained glass home windows? Nope.

This leads me to imagine that both the Doomguy hates breaking glass and received’t punch home windows together with his full drive or within the Doom universe glass is unbreakable and may be the one hope humanity has at stopping the demon hordes invading Earth.

Actually, the primary one appears extra doubtless. Doomguy is a badass demon slayer, however he isn’t an fool, like me. He doesn’t need to get glass in his fists and gloves. That shit hurts and it’s so onerous to take away all of the tiny specs of glass. If he did punch some glass and it shattered what may occur is 12 hours later, whereas preventing an imp, his fist will flip in simply the correct approach and he’ll really feel some glass in there, nonetheless caught beneath his pores and skin. And that sucks.

Or most likely, the extra doubtless purpose is the engine doesn’t assist this sort of breakable glass or the devs didn’t assume it was essential. That’s a attainable purpose too.
