View Full Version : DOOM Glitch - Remove all enemies from levels

Alright, first of all, credit to Tattiee/Krazace for this, just I didn't see it posted so here goes;

If your stuck on a level, you may want to try this glitch, it'll basically remove all enemies from a level (and conveniently give you all key cards)

WARNING: Do not use the glitch on any level with a boss, as it will remove the boss preventing you from completing the level (mission 8 of any episode)

1) Load/Start a save game, on the level you wish to glitch
2) Save your game, exit into the main menu
3) Search for a deathmatch (quick match), the match can be player OR ranked, it makes no difference. I realise it can sometimes be hard to find a match as the online isn't very active. However, you must join somebody elses match, the glitch will not work if you are hosting.
4) Ready up and wait until the match starts (important), after the match has started, leave the game from the main menu.
5) Load your single player game, get killed.
6) You should now spawn in a random/bonus area, all enemies have been removed and you have every keycard! Find the exit.
7) You will not be able to use the exit switch, so save your game, exit to the arcade, reload DOOM, load your game and you will be able to complete the level!

You will have to repeat the process for every level you wish to glitch

This will not effect your achievements.

Hope this helps :)

EDIT: Decided to list the levels with bosses on (don't glitch these!) to help;
Episode 1, Mission 8: Barons
Episode 2, Mission 8: Cyberdemon Lord
Episode 3, Mission 8: Spider Mastermind
Episode 4, Mission 8: Spider Mastermind (final fight)

You may have noticed they're all mission 8, so basically don't glitch mission 8, if your stuck a walkthrough can be found here (http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/xbox360/file/935829/16125).

Hmmm hopefully this works for me as I am terrible on Episode 4 it is way too hard for me on ultraviolent. Do you know if you have to be on the original console that DOOM was dl'd on for it to work? Did they patch this at all?

It works fine for me perfectly still, I've downloaded all avaliable title updates for DOOM and it still works so I guess it's not been patched, check your doing every step correctly :\

Are you still on the console that you originally downloaded DOOM on? I am just curious because that might be screwing others up possibly and myself if that doesn't work. I have not had a chance to try this yet but I will let you know if it works for me.

Yeah I am but I'm not sure if that'll effect the result, it's still worth a try, hope it works out for you since makes doing it much easier! Can still be a pain finding the exit though lol.

Then simply enough, you don't use it :P It's more if you've hit a brick wall and can't get any further, however, most people will just complete the game glitching it :P

I didnt see the last step and the exit wouldnt work then i read it again.
And im almost on E2 on nightmare but the boss will be hard

I can never find anyone online, therefore can't do the glitch. This glitch would help very much as it is a pain in the arse not knowing where to go and with enemies in all directions. I'll just keep searching and hope the best...

I just tried this on E4 M6 and it's fucked the gate won't open for me to run and hit the exit switch. I have done everything EXACTLY the same. anyone else having this problem??

If you read the steps, you'd notice that to finish a level, you need to save your game, exit to the dashboard then load up your save and you'll be able to finish the level.

BigEasy
09-29-2008, 11:59 AM
I've done that and it doesn't work. ok so here's the thing i lay down what i believe is wrong.

This Gate which is suppose to open in order to get to the Exit switch. (it's not the switch it's self, but preventing me from getting to it) Is staying closed because there must be a cyberdemon or something in which you have to kill for that gate to open. Once again this is E4 M6. Am i correct? Could you try it out and let me know if it works for you?

Thanks.

Dysitis
09-29-2008, 07:52 PM
Ya that gate is triggered by killing the cyberdemon so if you do the glitch to remove all enemies there won't be a cyberdemon for you to kill. You're just gonna have to play the level legit. Although if it's giving you too much trouble, you may want to try doing the glitch on e4m5 so that you can start off e4m6 with 200% health and armor and full ammo for all your weapons.

BigEasy
09-29-2008, 09:57 PM
Ugh fuck. Nah it's not that it's too hard, it's that i saved over my save file lol and i HATE Episode 4. it's like a total pos and kills me to play it because imo It's SO bad.. Besides it's like Fan User created anyways...

Oh well ok thanks i'll have to do that then.:(

09-29-2008, 09:58 PM
Seems a bit too much trouble. The odds of finding a game are very slim. I'd have 10 times more fun just playing the game though.

Howevere it is a useful glitch for anyone who is not good at Doom, good luck finding a match though ;)

As of 1 hour ago, this "Hack", "Glitch", or "Workaround" is still A-O-K! Thank you for posting such a life saving tip! It (XBL) also performed an update on DooM prior to me trying this "hack". So my title is current on it's updates.

I was stuck on E4M2 on Ultraviolent. I could not get more than 1/16th of the way through without running out of ammo and having to punch my way to my own death. Now this makes the Rampage achievement possible. I honestly would kiss the ground below anyone's feet who got it 100% Legit because I don't see how it would ever be possible.

I don't have all of them done yet, but it won't take that long before I'm 100% done (200 GS) on this game. Hurray! Is there a way you can tell which boards you have beat on Ultraviolent?

** EDIT ** It does still work if you host (you don't have to JOIN) the games, at least it has for me.

Well then pucker up and kiss it.

Seriously episode 4, though I understand that it is the most challenging episode in Ultimate Doom by far, is still very doable even on Nightmare. It just takes practice to get good enough to go through it.

Frijolie
10-29-2008, 06:55 PM
I know it may be possible, I just said it's near impossible to get legit. You definitely have to be on top of your game. The hard part is that ammo is scarce and monsters are a whole lot tougher! I was always running out of ammo and forced to punch Cacodemons, Hell Knights, and often got surrounded by Imps who tore me to shreds. After trying numerous times I gave in and utilized this glitch. I'm glad to say that it was available as an alternative to loosing hair and maybe stepping in broken glass from frustration...that's all I'm trying to say.

RRIKER
11-06-2008, 10:55 PM
There is a switch in the cyberdemon room in E4M6. I will have to check to see if that is what you need to hit or if you have to go back and beat the demon. Will update when available.

start kissing the ground below my feet then.

it's very possible, it just takes ALOT of playing (and even more saving and loading).

POTM
11-29-2008, 06:51 AM
Yeah I am on the E4M6 and from what I am reading I guess I can't beat it this way. Is there away around this or no?

SweKingPin
12-16-2008, 12:25 AM
I just completed E4M8 and that lvl was waaaaay easier than E4M6

For those of u having problems with E4M6, kill all enemies and just before you use the last teleport to go to the big boss remember to pick up the "Invulnarable-pickup" then hurry to him and just MASH HIM DOWN WITH THE BFG^^

It's easy: know where all the good weapons are hidden and save a lot so you can reload if you mess up. Now, I assume you'll be paying your own way to get over here and start kissing some floor?

You can't get achievements if you play co-op with a friend...has to be single player.

So this glitch can help, just not for the levels with a boss.

05-07-2009, 07:56 PM
Must've been patched as it no longer works.At least I can't get it to work at all.Anyone else confirm this as not working anymore?

EDIT If it doesn't work,try hosting the match yourself and then quitting out.Worked first time doing that wheras joining a mates game and leaving didn't work.

UCB Disco
05-10-2009, 08:52 PM
Just to clarify what the recent patch did;

Apparently, you cannot get this "glitch" by joining someone else's match now, but I can verify that if you host a public match and follow the same directions, it still works. I just did all of Episode 1 today just to try and figure it out, and that is how you have to do it now.

Instead of joining someone's match, try to be the host of a public match and quit right when it starts up. Hope this helps anyone that decides to finish this game this late. hahaha.

EDIT: It still works for both hosting a match and joining a match. I honestly don't know what the patch did. :p

yeah it still works. I tried it on a level tonight. took me about 4 times, but it worked.

Dysitis
06-09-2009, 05:44 AM
There was no patch. You probably just had to redownload an old update because some of your other games overwrote the Doom one. I believe your xbox only keeps 5 or so game updates before it starts overwriting them.

And at the, When I am actually trying to play a match online, it gets annoying when people are constantly quitting :mad: Lol its not that hard, just abuse the save system if need be.

And yes, it still works, my friend did it about 2 weeks ago, I doubt it will ever be patched.

I had found this glitch years ago and posted it on the Xbox forums. I just recently joined here to see if anyone knew it or not.
http://forums.xbox.com/9897798/ShowPost.aspx

But you don't have to die! If you stay in the level, all the items keep respawning! You can run through the level normally and get infinite health and ammo. Also, if it glitches like not having a boss, I believe you can just pick up all the health and ammo you want, save, reload and play normally. Then the boss should be there and you will have full ammo and health.

K4157H3W153
04-17-2010, 05:08 AM
lonesome killer - that is true.

Just a quick heads up about this glitch:

1. This glitch still works.

2. You CAN complete E4M6 no problem by using this glitch! All you have to do is at the very end, there are TWO teleport pads, one on the left and one on the right, you need to go through EACH of these teleport pads and activate the switch in each one. Once you do this the final gate will drop and you can complete the level!

Big thanks to the poster :)

Maybe there's something I'm not doing right, but for whatever reason, when using the glitch I cant exit Ep3m6. I've tried both normal and secret exits. Any ideas? I've tried following text and video walkthroughs. The switch at the secret exit does nothing. The normal exit teleporter does nothing as well. I am stuck.

EDIT : by the skin of my teeth I did it legit. I think the glitch can prevent you from finishing certain levels, I don't think this has been brought up yet, at least I haven't seen a post regarding it yet.

GR4V1G0R3
05-29-2010, 08:39 PM
it is mentioned that on the 'BOSS' levels you cannot do it, as you need to kill the enemy to end the level

but also, 2 posts above yours mentions how to do e4m6

i've only just got to e4m4 myself, no glitching (not that i didn't try, but failed twice, so did perfect hatred myself, took nearly 3 days, too many hell knights / barons of hell & cacodemons) that level has always been a nemesis of mine, just like trick & traps from doom 2

Yep this still works, I'm surprised the developers didn't do a patch to fix this. I used the glitch all the way until the last 3 levels, which probably saved me a few hours at least :woop:

I think Doom is easy enough to beat without the glitch, I just couldn't get into it though so I wanted the quickest way out.

I'm still on Episode 3. This game gives me hardcore motion sickness so I never got around to finish it. I think with this glitch I'll be able to take my time and not run around every five seconds.

Ya still works perfectly. There are 2 levels on the very last episode that you have to have the monsters on: 3rd to last level you need to have the monsters on as you need to kill a mid-boss to lower a barricade, and of coarse the very last level so you can kill the last boss.

Good luck, if you have trouble finding a match to quit out of online send me a message over live and I will help you out. GT: JAW LV

As far as I know, this doesn't work with Doom II, sadly. Though, from what I can tell, Doom II is the easier of the two games, so you should be able to get through it eventually with some practice.

My friends and I were playing deathmatch one time, and my friend spawned in one of those secret rooms. It was pretty funny because me and my other friend kept fighting, and he was stuck in the room till the game ended. This was Doom II though, I'm not sure about Doom I.

P1TTMAN
02-06-2012, 09:51 AM
I've been using this to take the coward's way out.. this game just is no fun for me in single-player, and co-op nets me no achievements. :mad:

Also, my friend couldn't get this method to work for him, so after reading all of this thread I asked him to try it hosting a multiplayer match-- and it worked.
So if it doesn't work for you joining matches, looks like hosting is how you fix it.

AnubusDoW
03-06-2012, 02:13 PM
As of today, this "glitch" still works. Only thing I had to do different is, I had to host the multiplayer match. Other than that worked like a charm.
Edit: Just a side note i have this game on mine and my girlfriends xboxs. have tried hosting and joining with both. Works either way MOST of the time, every once in a while it will not work, don't know why. Should work if you just try it again, but double check the steps too.

works like a charm. i downloaded the game to my second xbox and used it as a host

beware of e4m6! tried glitching it several times, but it didn't work. the cyberdemon has to be killed for the gate to open. so i played it legit, starting with a pistol only. took me about 30 minutes to complete on UV.

Exactly my point, I hope the people using this get their gamerscore for glitching. Doom is a excellent game, fun to play, people are glitching this should be ashamed. It's not as if the game in hard to begin with.

Glitch still works for me. Just need to find people online. If you're interested in helping each other out, just message me.

I would give this a try, but seeing as it's dead online, there really is no point in trying. Have made an effort together it done, but I get my ass handed to me each time. Still a great game, that's still a bunch of fun even today.

I would be ashamed if I gave it much thought-- not ashamed that I'm failing to beat the game properly, but ashamed that I'm going to these extremes to get a meaningless number "200" as a symbol of my virtual prowess.
As far as beating the game properly: I'm just going to admit I don't have the patience and I don't love this game enough to throw into it the hours it would take for me to get good enough to beat it on UV. So, it's a combination of lack of interest and lack of skill. :)

I can help with this; it's just a matter of catching me at the right time. Send me a message and we can work out a time to do this. I don't remember how long this takes-- if it's something that can be done in a matter of an hour or so, or if it'll take several tries.

This game was too fun to glitch it. Not that hard, really.

I will probably try this glitch later. If someone else wants to I could help in exchange the same thing

this thread makes me sad:( once you learn where all the secrets are ammo is not a problem and almost level has a secret where there is a soulsphere or megaarmor just have to take your time to beat ultraviolet they dont respawn like in nightmare really easy if you know where all the secrets are

Alright, this sounds awesome. I'm pretty good at Doom, but playing it on a controller just isn't natural to me.

If anyone wants to, message me on Live.

We could help each other out following these steps.
