Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: One of the messages that can occur on entering a new level is "Where the hell is the way out of here?" If by chance the exit stairs are within sight of your starting position, this is followed by a silly message as your character notices it.

** Dual pistol builds. Pistols are, generally speaking, the weakest weapon in the game, but by the time you get to the point where you can fire two at once, you're also practically certain that every bullet will hit and deal a fair chunk of damage, and pistol ammo is everywhere, so you never have to worry about running out.

* MagikarpPower: The pistol is the earliest and weakest weapon in the game, and better weapons become available very quickly. However, if you take a couple of levels in the "Son of a Gun" trait, you can become a "Dualgunner", which lets you wield and reload ''two'' pistols at the same time. Combined with the pistol prowess you gain from all these traits, the pistol suddenly becomes a surprisingly deadly weapon.

* DoNotSpoilThisEnding: Anyone reading spoilers knows about the TrueFinalBoss, and the official wiki provides the full details on how to get a [[GoldenEnding full win]] instead of a standard win. However, a couple of the secret items, Dragonslayer and the Berserker Armor, require the player to [[GuideDangIt meet specific conditions]] to pick up and use, and the few people in the community who know have figured it out have all agreed not to reveal the secret. The same goes for the highest player rank, Apostle.

* ExplodingBarrels: It wouldn't be Doom without 'em. Most of them are just Fuel Barrels that simply explode and could take out doors or a wall if pushed near them. A later update introduced 2 more types of barrels, Acid and Napalm, that could leave Acid or Lava tiles after they explode. The latter must be that [[{{Contra}} Contra 3]] napalm.

** The Shamblers, which are presumably the same as the ones from VideoGame/QuakeI. They're also resistant to explosives, just like Quake's Shamblers. They also seem to have taken a page from Lovecraftian Dimensional Shamblers (which were alluded to in an Exit to DOS taunt in the original Doom), because they can teleport at will, making it impossible to run from them, and making cover unreliable.

* OhCrap: If you see the message "Suddenly you have a great urge to turn back! You scream in TERROR!", it means that [[spoiler:every single enemy in the level has been replaced by a Cyberdemon, which most likely means unless you are very, very lucky, good or both, you can kiss your run goodbye]].

* MookMaker: Pain Elementals, which as per the original Doom spawns Lost Souls, and the Agony Elemental, which spits out more Pain Elementals. In addition there is the TrueFinalBoss [[spoiler:John Carmack]], who in addition to being as robust a tank as the Spider Mastermind, also has the nasty ability to summon a full eight [[EliteMooks Barons of Hell]]. ''At the same time''.
