Doom4 Codex Chainsaw
A Chainsaw! Find some meat!
~ Doomguy


The Chainsaw is a prominent weapon found in every DOOM game- and for good reason at that. It has instant killed every enemy it has been used against- however, the more durable that foe is, the more fuel it consumes. It is vastly superior to our own chainsaws in the real world. It is speculated that it could use diamond-tipped blades, as otherwise there is no explanation for its being on Mars- there is no plant life but plenty of rocks to cut.

    • Do you think I should make another thread to help straighten out the tiers of the verse than highlight it for input?
    • That may be a good idea, yes.
