Known Issues The Ancient Gods - Part One

  • Issue: In the Blood Swamps map, there is a wall climb location that the player may clip out of the map when using. This is located in a room where the player has to jump a chasm to a monkey bar, shoot a target to open the gate to the wall climb area, and swing onto the wall climb itself. There is a narrow area at the top of it where the Slayer will do a ledge grab instead of a wall climb.

Resolution: Most of the time, when this occurs the player is standing inside the wall and can turn around and jump back into the world. If the player clips completely through the wall and falls through the world, the player will need to restart the game from the last checkpoint. This is expected to be addressed in a future update.

  • Issue: The Classic DOOM Marine’s head is missing during some Cinematic sequences and during certain Podium animations

Resolution: This is a known issue which will be addressed in a future update. It is cosmetic only and does not impact gameplay.

  • Issue: In Photo Mode, the Slayer’s Flame Belch dispenser is a pink color while the Onslaught cheat is active

Resolution: Ensure the “Onslaught” cheat/power up is disabled/inactive when in Photo Mode for the correct texture to appear. This is not expected to be addressed in a future update.

Known Issues - BATTLEMODE

  • Issue: In the BATTLEMODE lobby menu, the Slayer may occasionally be seen to T-pose while waiting to load into the match

Resolution: This is expected to be addressed in a future update

  • Issue: During a match, the Slayer’s grenades may disappear visually mid-flight though it will still inflict expected damage

Resolution: This is expected to be addressed in a future update
