Scientist 2 is a 2005 Doom II megawad by Roland van der Velden (Scientist). Built off a 2002 release called simply Scientist, which contained the first 11 maps, Scientist 2 contains those same levels plus 9 new single player levels (for a total of 20), together with 10 bonus deathmatch levels based off the single player ones.
The player journeys through a city, a Soviet base in Siberia, and finally a series of ancient ruins to track down and kill the main antagonist of the story: a scientist seeking to gain immortality through his experiments.
Several new graphics are present, including changed weapons through a DeHackEd patch. The Wolfenstein SS and cyberdemon have been replaced by the eponymous Scientist, who acts as the main antagonist of the story as well as a recurring enemy and final boss for the last single player map.
The weapons are replaced as follows:
- the super shotgun into dual shotguns
- the chaingun into the AK-47
- the rocket launcher into the crossbow, with arrow ammo to match
- the plasma gun into a flamethrower, with corresponding fuel ammo
- the BFG9000 into flamegrenades
