Mission 2 Walkthrough — Exultia
Make use of your wall climbing ability to make it across the broken bridge, then shoot the red barrels to make quick work of the Zombies lurking in the next room. After swinging on a pole to reach the next platform, punch through the wall and take a right to find your first combat encounter in mission two.
This will be your first encounter with Doom Eternal’s Gargoyles. They’re very similar to Imps except they can fly, so strafe to avoid their projectiles and use the Heavy Cannon to shoot them out of the sky. Eventually a Cacodemon will show up, but a grenade in the mouth will dispatch it fairly quickly. After defeating all of the enemies in this area, the doors will open up revealing a rampaging Hell Knight. These hulking beasts hit hard but have a one-track mind. They’ll simply charge at you and occasionally throw in a jumping slam attack. The key is to keep moving backwards while pumping them full of lead, jumping out of the way of their slam attack if they ever get too close.
