DOOM Eternal difficulty settings offer different challenges for players giving them opportunities to play the game through multiple times.

DOOM Eternal is the sequel to the series' 2016 reboot. It's been well received with fans praising its high intensity gameplay, fun gun mechanics, fast-paced action and more. It also has high replay value with its different difficulty settings.

DOOM Eternal Difficulty Settings: Every Difficulty Available

Here's every available DOOM Eternal difficulty and their subsequent explanations:

  • I'm Too Young to Die - Enemies attack less often and do less damage. Some times you pick up in the world, like Health and Armor, are worth more than in higher difficulties
  • Hurt Me Plenty - Enemies attack often and do meaningful damage. Death and low health states will be common early on as you learn to master the skills required to dominate the combat experience
  • Ultra-Violence - Enemies throw power attacks more often and deal significant damage. Death may be common early on as you learn to master the skills needed to dominate the combat experience
  • Nightmare - Enemy attacks are more frequent and deal maximum damage. Few mistakes are allowed and complete mastery of the combat loop is required
  • Ultra-Nightmare - One death and you fail. Enemies are just as aggressive as Nightmare difficulty
  • Extra Life Mode - Run out of Extra Lives and then die, it's Game Over. Select this mode, and then your difficulty

DOOM Eternal is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
