We strive to keep our fighters as balanced as possible. We look at metrics such as win rate, pick rate, winning team composition, average kills per game, and other factors. across skill tiers. Our goal is to make sure each fighter offers a different strategic playstyle, not a more powerful playstyle. We will adjust fighter balance in pursuit of healthy game balance when we see fit.
We take cheaters very seriously and will take action on Bethesda Accounts that violate the User Agreement. DOOM Eternal utilizes the latest anti-cheat technology on PC and the built-in anti-cheat features available on PlayStation® 4, Xbox One.
