BFG9000

The BFG9000 is the ultimate weapon in the classic Doom series. Although somewhat unwieldy to aim, it can inflict thousands of points of damage over a wide angular field. Each shot produces a huge plasma ball followed by numerous invisible rays after impact. Early deathmatch maps sometimes omitted the BFG for fear of upsetting play balance.

The BFG has become a trope over the years, widely imitated in other FPS games (including by id Software) and referenced in popular culture as often as any specific Doom element.
