The Silent BFG trick is a tactic used in deathmatch to silence the BFG 9000 when firing. The BFG makes a loud and conspicuous sound effect when firing. Because the BFG is more powerful than any other weapon, the ability to silence this sound can give the player a great advantage when playing in a multiplayer game. The trick relies on a limitation in the Doom engine.
Performing the trick Edit
Performing the trick involves "replacing" the BFG firing sound with the "oof" sound effect heard when the player falls from a height or pushes on a wall.
- The player must either press on a wall immediately after firing the BFG, or time firing the BFG to coincide with hitting the ground. To be used effectively, the player must trigger the sound effect almost immediately after pressing the fire button.
Being able to do this reliably takes practice.
