How to get more ammo in Doom Eternal

How to stop running out of ammo in Doom Eternal

  • Keep your eyes peeled for a variety of ammo pickups strewn around the game world.
  • Progress through the campaign until you unlock the chainsaw melee weapon.
  • Use the chainsaw to slay enemies in order for them to drop ammo.
    • Note: The chainsaw has limited fuel, but the first segment will automatically recharge over time.

Enemies that are eviscerated with chainsaws will drop notably less ammunition in Eternal than in its predecessor, though the regenerating segment of fuel aims to counterbalance this. It’s likely that getting proficient at juggling your resources will take some time, so try not to get too frustrated if you find yourself running out of ammunition frequently during the early stages of Doom Eternal.

If you’re really struggling, you might want to consider turning down the difficulty so that hellspawn soak up less damage and you save ammo in the process.
