Eh? Blowing them ass-over-backwards with a shotgun at point blank range will leave a corpse, but using your fists you'll actually leave none? Boy, does Doomguy have issues.

Enemies won't leave corpses on fluids, doors or other corpses.

Ah - my bad. Halfway through an ITYTD run knives/fists only now, needed a short break. Trying to build an MMB, but since I'm skipping all the special levels, it's going sloooooooow. Starting Deimos 5 at exactly L5/0%, still need to collect DM. So far I'm at 100% though, and the chainsword with 2 Bru wreaks more havoc than I would've thought. Maybe I should take a closer look at the damage and health ratings.

I gotta agree with Klear though: melee build are awe-inspiring.

You're going to love it when you'll be able to use two of them at once =)

With a shotgun they fly backwards and die, hence not dying on the door. When you hit them they die on the spot, ie on the door, and dead men leave no corpses on doors. One of Doom RL's delightful quirks that must be mastered for N!

Code: [Select]

..@#.
When the monster appears in the door, if you shoot at it with shotgun from this position, it won't fly backwards because there's a wall behind it. And if it'll survive, you can move upper left as well as reloading the shotgun (Shottyman is required), making a monster not do its ranged attack, to make like this:
Code: [Select]
...#.
.../.
..h#.
.@.#.

And then, blasting it with a shotgun can throw it back one tile, making it stop at the door tile, so if it'll die, it will leave no corpse.

Too bad I ran into an arena type level with 2 Revenants giving each other backup. One of these is hard enough (I was waiting to ambush one outside of a room, but instead of opening the door he just blasted a hole in the wall next to it), but 2 or more spells certain death to me. Is there any way around this if there is no cover whatsoever?

It's not a quirk per se - in doom corpses get crushed by doors, DoomRL just doesn't require you to close them. Corpses disappearing in water is kinda weird though.
