A couple of cheats have been discovered for the 2016 reboot of DOOM from id Software and Bethesda. Namely, ways to take hold of infinite ammo, dumb down the AI or become invincible.
According to GameRanx any time you activate a cheat it puts DOOM into developer mode, so you won’t be eligible for unlocking achievements when the codes are active. If you want to re-activate the Steam achievement recognition, you’ll need to exit the game and restart it without using any of the cheats. The console cheats only work for the PC version of the game, and the codes haven’t been discovered yet that unlock the same effects on the PS4 and Xbox One. Also, the cheats only work for the single-player portion of the game, so you’re out of luck if you attempt to use them during multiplayer.
Only a couple of codes have been noted to work. When you press the tilde key ~, next to the number ‘1’ key on the keyboard, it should pull down the console command window. This will enable you to input various cheats, as noted by GameRevolution.

You can also download a cheat trainer for DOOM from over on Cheat Happens.
The trainer contains the following cheats:
- Unlimited Chainsaw
- Mega Health
- Unlimited Ammo
- Fast Cooldown Weapon
- Fast Chargeup Weapon
- Instant Grenades
- Super Armor
- Easy Kills
- Weapon Currency
- Suit Token Currency
- Float Mode
- Save/Load Position (Teleport)
Now there appears to be some other cheats floating around that don’t work, but there are plenty of Eater Eggs and hidden levels as well. For instance, according to VideoGamesblogger you can unlock NewGame+ just by completing the standard campaign mode.
You can also unlock the classic maps from the original DOOM by pressing the hidden levers found in each of the new stages. You can check out one of the E1M1 maps in the video below from bod699. There’s also a video showing the Entryway map from DOOM II in action as well.
The old levels are ripped right out of the classic DOOM games but with the newer monsters from the 2016 reboot.
There’s also a secret Super Turbo Turkey Puncher 3 mini-game in the new DOOM. It’s located in Mission 9: Lazarus just beyond the Weapons Division and after coming out of the Lazarus Labs elevator there’s an arcade cabinet hiding behind some storage blocks stacked up in the corner of the hallway. YouTuber HarryNinetyFour gives you a look at the mini-game in the video below.
There are a lot of other mini-games, secrets, hidden levels and cheats tucked away inside of DOOM for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. To their credit, at least id Software did a fair job in giving gamers their $60 worth.
