Pain Elemental Can't Spawn Lost Souls - Level 9: The Pit

This is due to the 'Lost Soul Limit'

If a level has 21 or more Lost Souls then the Pain Elemental is rendered a floating target. I had 3-4 of them following me through the entire level

Level 9: The Pit has 33 Lost Souls on UV/NM so feel free to hug this adorable pet he is no harm

Sweet! I hate Pain Elementals, so it's nice to know that those jerks get neutered in at least one level.

Pain Elemental can always be neutralized, whenever you see one if you stick in their face the lost soul they'll spit won't come out nor hurt you. They're just annoying when covered by many enemies.

Just reached The Pit... Got stuck on a small ledge with two of them, and "Oh shit!"'d to myself... Then the one died, and nothing. Then I remembered this.

I had one thing to say to the remaining PE...

I also played this level again to try & get all 10 Pain Elementals to follow me

It didn't work because other enemies were killing the Lost Souls & while I was walking to the Pain Elemental it spewed out a Lost Soul proper shit me up LoL

Yes, sadly progressing through The Pit wasn't as fun. You had to kill some Lost Souls in your way to progress, and eventually their total numbers go below 21... Not fun anymore.

I swear lost souls are the only thing that make this game hard in anyway.

I liked source ports better since they can override that limit...

I see it only as a glitch because Pain elemental in the PC version still spawn them. -shrugs-

Not in the original versions. If you use one of those fancy source ports though, most of them fix it so they can keep spawning regardless. But the original MS DOS and Doom 95 (when that still worked >_>) ways to play the game before the source ports had that same limitation.

Remember though, it only works on The Pit when you're playing Ultra Violence or Nightmare. If you're on anything lower, there are less Lost Souls from the start, meaning that the Pain Elemental can spawn them.

You can only replay a level from a previous save or on split-screen / online co-op
