* ClusterBomb: Because nothing says overkill like exploding explosions that explode into explosions! (Yes this is an actual thing in the game. Just look at Colonel Pillzkanone)

Colonel Pillzkanone)Pillzkanone's secondary fire launches explosive medikits filled with explosive pills and, when reachesto its second charging stage, even more explosive medikits, in turn loaded with explosive pills.



* {{Fartillery}}: Yuri's melee alt-fire has him charge up a mechanically-boosted fart that will suffocate nearby demons, as well as propel him into the air.

* GameBreaker: The entire mod is one big "fuck-you" to the challenge of standard Doom gameplay.
** Aside from the rather intensive arsenal and the removal of the maximum health and armor limit, you also have a jetpack, and several methods of RecoilBoost which the game encourages you to use, to subvert the usual flow of maps. [[spoiler:Taken UpToEleven with the Yamato's "Quantum Jump" feature, which '''''skips the level outright'''''.]]

* HandBlast: Alosha's "melee" has him mime various gun-firing motions. [[ThisBananaIsArmed This kills people.]]
** It must be stressed that Alosha actually fires ''physical munitions'' when he does his handguns. They even eject casings!

* MacrossMissileMassacre: Not surprisingly, some weapons have the capability to launch rapid-fire explosive death. Deathhead is a standout example, with its primary fire being a shotgun blast of mini-nukes.

* {{Roboteching}}: Power Overwhelming's quatenary fire toggles Homing Boolets mode, Matryoshka's secondary fire shoots seeking missiles, and the Shuricane's primary will home in on the closest enemy, tracking the player's crosshair if they cannot find one.

* DistractedByTheSexy: Shurricane's secondary launches a slow-moving probe that, when it hits something, displays a holographic imp stripper. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer We're serious]]. Nearby demons will turn on each other when exposed to it, and if the infighting doesn't kill them off, then the flame sprinkler the probe emits will.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: Some of the weapons are portable nuke launchers, and black hole generators, that can just as easily kill you as they do the enemy.

* HiddenInPlainSight: There is an additional difficulty level below "Drunk Simulator", mentioned internally as "License to Kill" but appears as a blank in-game due to it apparently being represented by a picture rather than normal text.
* HulkingOut: Rather than create a berserk powerup, Russian Overkill gives you a portable Berseker pack as a melee weapon. Selecting it will transform your character into a [[VideoGame/LeftForDead Tank]] with a MegatonPunch, an [[RoarBeforeBeating intimidating roar]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and an included music player button]].

* AttackDrone: The Ramjet can shoot ''itself'', becoming a [[PlayerGuidedMissile player-guided]] sniper rifle that you can use to scout the level and shoot at enemies off-screen.

* OneHitPointWonder: The HiddenInPlainSight "License to Kill" difficulty, which sets all monster health to ''0.00001x'' their standard amounts and increases damage taken by ''90,000x'', functionally making you this.



* RapidFireFisticuffs: One of Marty's melee combos unleashes the terrifying [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken]], rending his victims to mincemeat in a matter of seconds.

He also has a less extreme (and easier to execute) bicycle kick combo where he repeatedly kicks everything in front of him with both feet.



** And of course the Master Obliterator, which rapid-fires carpet-bombing jet planes from its many barrels.
** Rifles aren't immune to this either: the Ramjet sniper rifle can shoot ''itself'' in the manner of AttackDrone.

Added DiffLines:

* BeehiveBarrier: The Antonov's alternate fire summons an expanding plasma shield made of hexagons which not only deflects demon projectiles, but demons themselves as well.

Added DiffLines:

* DiscOneNuke: Taken about as literally as possible with the Gopnik, which not only shoots disk-shaped mines and has a nuke mode, but is a ROCKET LAUNCHER REPLACEMENT. The very same rocket launcher that can be acquired in Doom 2's Entryway.


* PrecisionFStrike: The [[GatlingGood Gorynch]], essentially a 1200-RPM shotgun, is nicknamed "The Fucker", due to the fact that firing it will fuck up the skeleton of anybody who is not Russian... on both ends of the weapon.

** The three Weapon Amplifiers (Stalin, Lenin, and Trocky) transform their respective weapons' ([[YouNukeEm Deathhead]], [[KillSat Planet Cracker]], and [[UnrealisticBlackHole Borsch]]) alt-fires into a cluster variant. The individual components are reduced in no way compared to their normal counterparts; there's simply more of them.
