Glory Kill is a special kind of execution that will give you some health points. The execution of a Glory Kill does not depend on the type of demon. If enemy demon receives a specific amount of damage it will start to flash (flickering highlight) which means that you can finish it off.
Glory Kill gives you absolute certainty that your opponent will not attack you again. Such a monster has no defensive options, and your attack will kill him right away.
Using a chainsaw is great if you want to replenish ammo of your weapons. But you must remember about one important aspect. Chainsaw consumes fuel - the bigger the demon the higher amount of fuel is required. Refuel your fuel tank on a regular basis.
Also, remember that the less ammunition you have at any particular moment, the more it will drop of the killed monster.
A small flamethrower mounted on your shoulder will be unlocked when you complete your first mission. It will set every opponent on fire, and in return monsters may throw away some armor points. This method works well in final situations, when it is difficult to get extra points of health or armor.
Blood Punch is a skill which can be unlocked during the first level of the game. It's a special melee attack that inflicts heavy damage and stuns your opponent. To complete it, you must commit glory kills.
- The Blood Punch works well to knock your opponents out of balance and stun them;
- Bloody Punch can also destroy enemy shields of such opponents like Arch-vile.
- The rune Punch and Reave causes enemies to drop some health after they were killed.
One of the most important rules in Doom Eternal is to constantly move all the time. Search for platforms, jumping pads, climbing walls or other elements that may help you move smoothly.

In Doom Eternal you can collect loot in two ways. By exploring the world and picking up items lying on the ground like ammo, health or armor.
