The soldier blaster is monster in Doom Eternal, taking the place of the possessed soldier from Doom (2016). It reprises its role as an armed former human for the first time in a main-series Doom game since Doom 64, with a design heavily inspired by its appearance in that game (which was in turn directly based on the original). Like the possessed soldier before it, the soldier now attacks with a plasma-powered, projectile-based weapon which can either be fired off in single shots or charged up for a slower but more powerful blast. A version with a shield also exists, like the possessed security, named Soldier Shield. Like all monsters in the game, the soldier is highly mobile - he even has a jet booster which allows him to make high jumps.

The soldier seems to retain even more intelligence than its forebears and speaks with others of its kind in a low-pitched demonic voice - this is similar to the radio chatter used by the likewise intelligent Z-Secs of Doom 3.

Glory kills[edit]

The Doom Slayer executes a soldier using the Doom blade.
  • The Doom Slayer pulls back the soldier's head and then extends the Doom blade, allowing it to impale the soldier's skull through his mouth.
  • The Doom Slayer can also use the Doom blade as a sword, decapitating the soldier with a single clean slice through the neck.
  • The Doom Slayer grabs the soldier, turning him around before impaling the Doom blade through his eye.
  • The Doom Slayer grabs the soldier's right arm, breaks the bone and punches him in the face.
  • The Doom Slayer grabs hold of the soldier's left arm before stabbing him twice in the chest.
