The plasma rifle in use against zombies.
Concept art.
This article is about the weapon in Doom Eternal. For other versions of this weapon, see:

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 presently unknown what if any upgrades or enhancements might be available for the weapon in this iteration.

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.
