Classic Doom (Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom, Doom 64 etc):

  • Take a shot for every time you die. Make it a shot if you never saved at any point during the level, and have to start over with just a pistol (originals) or from an autosave (source ports).
  • Finish your drink if you reach E2M8 and don't have a plasma rifle. You're going to need it.
  • Take a shot if you finish a level with 100% kills, items, and secrets. Make it two shots if the time is under par.
  • If playing in Nightmare! difficulty or in Doom 2, finish your drink if the end-of-level tally shows over 100% monsters killed.

  • Finish your drink if you kill off a baron of hell, cyberdemon, or spider mastermind with the fists or chainsaw.
  • Take a drink anytime a baron of hell or other major enemy is killed due to infighting.
    • Take a sip instead if you're in Doom II's MAP08: Tricks and Traps.
  • Take a sip every time grabbing an item or entering a room reveals enemies.
  • Take a drink if an archvile revives an enemy that was especially difficult to kill.
  • Take a shot if getting blasted by an archvile sends you flying somewhere advantagious. Make it double if doing so skips part of the level.
  • If using source ports, finish your drink anytime you commit Sequence Breaking by jumping or crouching.
    • Down the bottle if you kill the Icon of Sin using mouselook.
  • In The Plutonia Experiment, take a shot if you complete level 32, "Go 2 It". Heck, do it if you find the secret levels in the first place, since once in level 31, "Cyberden", the only exit leads right to "Go 2 It".
