I really love the fact that even though the original “Doom” was released back in December of 1993 (1993-12-10, to be exact), people still find new tricks and whatnot for the game. So in a way I believe that “Doom” will stay alive forever (especially thanks to the mod and fan community), and speaking of tricks. I just found out about a new trick (well, at least I haven’t heard about it before) that has been discovered ID’s “Doom”, and the trick was spotted by a Youtube user called “Zero Master” (you can watch the new “Doom” trick in-action further down the page):

“Some time back I discovered it was possible to activate a switch from more than 64 units away, which everyone assumed was the max distance. It started on map 15 of doom 2 with a shortcut to the blue key as can be seen in the video.Then 4shockblast discovered it’s possible to activate the exit switch on map 04 of plutonia, but that requires a distance much larger than 64 units. This is the second video.Then the snowball starting rolling, and map 07 of doom 2 was discovered to be possible to activate by looper.

This is the 3rd video which is done in about 2-3 seconds using TAS.Then looper discovered another thing, pressing a switch through the wall! on map 17 of doom 2. This is the last video where it is shown by JCD.It should also be possible to complete map 32 of doom 2 without monsters by activating the switch through the wall (nomonsters removes the keen dolls so it was thought to be impossible). E4M2 secret exit should be much easier to reach and can be done pacifist without telefragging the cyberdemon.Who knows what other levels might be improved from this.”Zero Master

a new trick has been discovered for doom

The moment when you realize that you can activate a switch from more than 64 units away (this should do wonders for those who love to speedrun through “Doom”).

In other words, Zero Master’s discovery should come as a blessing for those who’s into speedrunning. As they should now be able to get an even faster speedrun record in “Doom” thanks to switch trick =)

And with that said, what’s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
