Zen Dynamics is a 2005 ZDoom partial conversion created by Xaser. It was created to demonstrate an implementation of weapon reloading in ZDoom, 7 years before it was officially and fully implemented as a weapon state. The game also includes features such selecting and deselecting frames, cutscenes, new monsters, new levels, new sounds, and 13 new weapons. Most of the levels are based on unfinished levels created by Malcolm Sailor which were released in 2000 in the "Assorted Scraps and Leftovers" collection.

At the 13th Annual Cacowards, this WAD was listed as a runner-up alongside Oniria.
