Revenant (Doom Eternal)
- Revenant (Doom 3)
- Revenant (Doom 2016)
The revenant returns as a monster in Doom Eternal , mostly retaining its appearance from Doom (2016) , albeit slightly modified: its eyeballs now glow green, it lacks blood on its forehead, new cybernetics are present on its head and neck, its mouth shape is a bit different, and its metal parts are now cleaner in appearance, with new detailing on the rocket launchers that makes them resemble demonic mouths.
One particular revenant, referred to by VEGA as a revenant drone, can be player-controlled in order to obtain the super shotgun . The same mechanics are used for the revenant in Battlemode .

Tactical analysis [ edit ]
The revenant is able to shoot a barrage of guided missiles at the player if it is able to lock on, and retains its flight capabilities from the previous game. However, the player is able to shoot off the rocket launchers in order to disable this attack, leaving it with only its much weaker claw swipe and forcing it to fight exclusively on the ground. It can also dash to evade incoming fire.
Dashing or double-jumping will break its lock-on.
Glory kills [ edit ]
- The Doom Slayer stabs the revenant's jetpack, causing it to malfunction and self-destruct, blowing up the revenant.
- The Slayer cuts off the revenant's lower torso and legs, causing it to spin in air before exploding.
- The Slayer throws the revenant on the ground and decapitates it.
- The Slayer punches the revenant in the face, grabs its head and then drives his knee into its skull.
Lore [ edit ]
The revisions made to the revenant's design by the UAC cultists incorporate enhanced cyber-neural programming. Upon receiving a certain signal to its frontal cortex, the revenant enters a state of unrestrained bloodlust that prevents all forms of thought and feeling unrelated to inflicting violence.
Battlemode [ edit ]
The revenant is one of six demons that can be controlled by players in Battlemode . It is well-rounded and maneuverable, combining offensive power from its rockets with the agility of its jetpack. However, revenant players need to watch their fuel supply as they will be temporarily unable to fly if it runs out.
Trivia [ edit ]
- The player-controlled revenant shown in the QuakeCon 2018 demo was named 'D00t76'. This is a nod to the "doot" meme, an inside joke among fans regarding a revenant holding a trumpet in photoshopped variants of Doom (2016)' s cover art. The meme is further referenced with the pre-order exclusive skin for the revenant, where its body armor is stylized with a trumpet theme and the rocket launchers are replaced with a pair of trumpets. The number 76 is likely a reference to the contemporaneous Bethesda title, Fallout 76 .

doom2: the revenant
By dremor8484 , May 20 in Doom General
my opinion is that revenant is too tall and risks to get stuck or have the head inside the ceiling.
what is your opinion ? do you perceive the revenant as too tall ? did you see it partially obstructed by geometry ?

I hate it when you see it magically go through a low-hanging doorway, like it's got semi-noclip for its' ugly head.

thanks for the answer, so i am not the only one that noticed that happening.
Or maybe your geometry is too low? Don't height-shame the poor bastard. He's got enough issues already what with his horrendous melee sprites and having to rely on homing missiles to hit anything because of his lack of eyes ;( Nah but I hate that poo too. Though most of the monsters honestly need like 4 or 8 units of height because they suffer the same issue in my opinion.

sadly... it happened inside doom2 wad :'(
it doesn't happen often, but when it does... it kills immersion.
i will test if reducing its sprite to 75% would fix the problem...
but first i will keep playing till i find another place where this happens... (since i forgot on which map i got this "visual glitch")
you are correct somehow, it is mainly fault of who built the maps, and misplaced the monsters and items... for example even in the unmodded doom2 level 2 there are some barrels stuck inside geometry half inside a wall nearby a door
so far those are the only 2 graphic glitch i found in doom2 iwad: a few barrels stuck inside walls and a few revenant with its head phasing through a concrete ceiling.

Not at all (at least not in this particular case); it's actually the fault of whoever set the monsters' properties. Contrary to assertions that Doom has only 2±0.5 dimensions, the Z axis exists and is taken into account when it comes to monster movement; monsters cannot enter sectors that are shorter than their defined height. The problem here is that the revenant has its height set to 56 units (the same as the player and humanoid enemies) despite its sprites being around 80 units tall, thus allowing it to fit under ceilings significantly lower than its visible appearance. (The arch-vile has the same issue, though it's less frequently noticed, due to it rarely appearing in tight spaces.)

thanks for the explanation, i will keep an eye on the revenant and check if i fixed it, i used slade to check the pixel height... it can go as high as 92
for the barrels in map02 of doom2, i see it is an already known problem and not fixed by anyone:

I have the feeling there's a reason this hasn't been fixed yet? I seem to recall it's been brought up many many times and always been rejected.
Arctangent wrote:Use an earlier version of Doom 2. MAP02 was among the random maps that got arbitrarily shifted a few map units during ... 1.9, I think? and due to not doing it perfectly that shotgunner's in that position.
But where can I find that? I only have the WADs from Steam.
Gez wrote:[Not ZDoom][IWAD Bug][Fixing this without touching the map would catastrophically break the game by basically making monsters noclip all over the map, and people would complain "bug: every monster is a ghost!" and then we'd have to say "but that one shotgunner in MAP02 is no longer stuck!"]
Heh, yeah. It's either this or that. Think I prefer this.
There are a few places in Doom2 a bit like this where you can see the effects of (I assume) last minute tweaking and inadequate testing either for the initial release or by something getting (accidentally?) moved during the updates. e.g. I'm quite sure that all the enemies up on the platform in the big final room of map01 not being central in their sector is the result of this:
For whatever reason, the entire map was shifted southwest, closer to the 0, 0 coordinate, in version 1.8. As a result of this, some flats became unaligned. The map was shifted again in version 1.9 to fix the flat alignment. Things were also shifted, but not by the same amounts, meaning they have slightly different positions in relation to the map geometry in each version.

thanks to your knowledge, i have a chance to fix in the future the revenant graphic glitch if/when i will encounter it again.
for the barrel in map02 of doom2, i was able to create a quick fix... taking the original map02 from doom version 1.7a (the barrel is no longer inside a wall)
