Plasma rifle (Doom Eternal)
The plasma rifle returns as a weapon in Doom Eternal, with a new design that draws heavily from the original plasma gun. The overall function of the weapon appears to be unchanged, firing small bright blue compact orbs of plasma at a rapid rate. It is confirmed to have mods such as a "Microwave Beam" mod that stuns a monster before it explodes and a red plasma mode that is similar to the Heat Blast mod from its previous literation.
Upon killing a demon with the plasma rifle, the victim seems to explode with electricity. However, at the moment it is unconfirmed whether or not this burst effect can cause splash damage.
