  • Open AMD/Nvidia control panle and select Doom for Best Performance.
  • Turn Off V-Sync
  • Play Doom in Full Screen not Borderless Full Screen Mode.

Doom 2016 Mouse Acceleration:

To turn off the mouse acceleration in the game you will have to edit its config file. Before editing the config file make sure to back it up because if anything goes wrong you can revert back to the original file. Try the following steps to edit your Doom config file:

Doom 2016 Turn Off Auto Aim:

Well you cannot turn off the auto aim in Doom 2016. There is not a single way to turn of this auto aim assistance in the game including the PC version of Doom. I’m sure that it’s a mistake and it’ll be fixed with an update patch so we have to sit and wait.

Doom 2016 – Game Not Launching Issue:

This issue may be caused by an outdated driver so make sure that you are running up to date drivers on your system. If you are, and still has this issue I suggest you turn off your antivirus application and then launch the game.

Doom 2016 Developer Mode:

We all love to spice up our gaming experience with cheat codes, but if you activate cheat codes in Doom it will trigger a developer mode and all your progress will be flagged as developer-only. This include any progressed Campaigns or New Campaign. If you use the Console Command you will trigger this phenomena and to get rid of this, you will have to delete the all the save files associated with this Console Command Active Progress. Delete the save games and also disable saving to the cloud in Steam then relaunch the game.

I didn’t try this but I think you can backup your normal save file then use the Console Command and play Doom 2016 with Cheats and Console Commands. And then if you want a non-dev-only game, use your normal save files where you haven’t activated the Console Commands. It’s just a theory I haven’t tried this but it might work. I’ll post it here after trying this thing.

And if you have tried this, tell us in comments if it were successful or not?
