The '''Doomhunter''' is a new [[monster]] which first occurs in [[Doom Eternal]]. It is a half-demon, half-mechanical monstrosity, reminiscent of [[Sabaoth]], armed with multiple weapons, including a large cannon, a dual-bladed chainsaw, two forward-facing guns which likely fire plasma projectiles, and what appears to be a multiple-launch missile system. It can be observed to hover on jets that fire below it. Though displayed as a concept render with a "final/refinement" designation during the {{wp|QuakeCon}} 2018 game play presentation, the monster has not yet been seen in action, so very little is known about it. It has been referred to as an "arch-nemesis" of the [[Doom Slayer]] by [[id Software]]. During the QuakeCon 2019 keynote, id Software showcased a teaser of the Doomhunter in gameplay, revealing it to be being able to use an energy shield to protect its upper half from attack.
