- Another feature I don’t think made in into the game is “per polygon damage” (not 100% sure on this one)
doom3 uses hitboxes, just as nearly every other game. this puts less load on the network, makes cheats less likely, and puts way less strain on the processor of the host (which is already a very high amount).
