A fantastic addition DOOM (2016) brought to the series is the Glory Kill. By performing especially brutal close quarters kills in exchange for extra health, armor and ammo, the game encouraged players to get real friendly with enemies instead of just slinging bullets from a distance.
With DOOM Eternal preparing to bring even more feats of gruesome athleticism to the party, it’s a good time to take a look at some of our favorite finishers.

Look, the Mancubus is a big guy. It just stands to reason that a demon that huge also means he has huge guts…
Rip and tear!
This one hits all the high points of an effective Glory Kill: It’s gruesome, it’s satisfying, just a little bit funny and it gets the Slayer up-close-and-personal to the enemy. And given that the Mancubus is one of more grotesque demons in Hell’s bestiary, up-close-and-personal is exactly where you don’t want to be – so there’s an extra layer of pure visceral discomfort on the grisly cake.
