The Best Doom Cheat Codes for PC

Cheat codes and strategies for the original Doom video game on PC.

Id Software

The original Doom for PC is one of the most classic titles of all time. It's a seminal first-person shooter with plenty to offer both new and old players, and reasons to keep coming back. From mods to additional levels to modifiers that make things more difficult, there's something in it for everyone, which should be well reflected in the cheats we've gathered here for you to devour. 

An interesting tidbit to remember is the IDDQD cheat code, which essentially makes you a god for the remainder of the time you're playing the game. There's some merit to playing the game without cheat codes, however, as playing it will likely help you improve your skill when it comes to similar shooters of the era like Rise of the Triad and Wolfenstein 3D. They look and play a lot like Doom as-is, so once you've played one you've played them all!

The following cheats are for the original Doom PC video game. Cheat codes are entered during game play and must be entered from the start screen by heading to the cheat terminal. If you just start typing willy-nilly they're probably not going to work right, so make sure you're putting everything where it needs to go and you'll be golden. 

To reach the in-game terminal, make sure you bring up the console by pressing the tilde key ( ~ ), then enter one of the following codes below. It's important to remember not to just start entering information on the game screen, as you might accidentally turn on something or turn it off during the game. Make sure you're using the special cheat code terminal, and enter all of your codes from there. This is an important tip to remember no matter what title you're playing or trying to use cheat codes in.
