The pistol weapon rumored to be in Doom Eternal has been unearthed--here's how to access it for yourself.

In most shooters pistols appear as a starter weapon, but Doom Eternal skips players straight to a shotgun instead. It turns out a pistol was once planned, but was ultimately cut out when it didn't fit the flow of the gameplay. The weapon is still in the game, however, and can be accessed with console commands via Cheat Engine.

Console commands for Doom Eternal are available thanks to the work of SunBeam on Fearless Revolution Forums, while the pistol itself was unearthed by user Archangel73337. The full topic is worth a scroll for anyone keen to see what other secrets have been left hidden in the game's code, inaccessible through normal gameplay.

Dave Oshry of New Blood Interactive was the one to post this little tidbit on Twitter.

Even without the pistol included, GameSpot's reviewer Phil Hornshaw said Doom Eternal's combat "is just as quick and chaotic [as Doom 2016], but requires you to constantly analyze everything that's happening in order to come out victorious. Once you get the hang of the rhythm of Doom Eternal, it'll make you feel like a demon-slaying savant."
