    Extra life mode is a separate game mode where it plays more like the original doom. Once all you lives run out, that's it game over. You can choose a difficulty so I would recommend play this on I'm too young to die. I would also recommend you play this on your second play through as if you collect everything during this play through, you will have to collect everything again if you are going for (master of fasting) achievement as you can not replay missions in extra life mode.

    Note: you can beat the game with more then 10 extra lives. I finish that game with 47 and the achievement pop once the credits rolled.

    GlitchNDaSystemIf you play on ITYTD and collect all extra lives in a level you should be fine. I did ITYTD and the Unmodded challenge on my extra life mode playthrough and beat the game with like 30 extra lives, so its totally doable. Just make sure to pause and take a breath each time The Marauder pops up. Hes really the only enemy that'll take life after life from you if you find yourself going on tilt. Also watch your surroundings. Even on ITYTD it is easy to accidentally back yourself into a corner and get surrounded

    NegativeCreep08Usually the best way to deal with the Marauders is a one-two hit with the super shotgun and ballista. But if there are lots of other enemies around, a good tip is to fire sticky bombs at his feet, or use the rocket launcher lock on and aim off to the side, where they should steer themselves around his shield. Ice bomb instantly kills the ghost dog as well.

    MatadorBIDDo not attempt the "Can't Perfect Perfection" milestone (Unlock only 1 Praetor Suit perk and 1 Sentinel Crystal) while chasing this achievement. Playing on ITYTD I maxed out at 22 lives, made it to Urdak with 18, but got melted down to 4 before making it to the last level. Only 4 lives to pick up in that level so I have to start over. angry

    three daugJust got this on ITYTD with can't perfect perfection, ended with 39 lives. didn't even do my weapons all the way up. The only thing I lost lives to was marauders and the final boss fight. The only real set back was failling to escape the super gore nest when i got turned around which is actually GAME OVER :/ Pretty easy all in all

    Parkman RulesI destroyed the heart in the super gore nest and when I was escaping from the autodestruct I got lost and died losing all my 23 lives at once when I ran out of time. WTF?

    WulfTekHonestly this isn't too bad if you do a 100% run first. I remembered where 95% of the extra lives I found on my first playthrough were, and found a couple new ones.

    For the Khan Maykr I recommend the lock-on rocket launcher mod (don't forget to meat-hook/bloodpunch), and for Icon of Sin, I found the chaingun with the mod for increased fire speed, and vanilla plasma rifle best.

    I equipped the rune that let me survive one fatal hit at low health but if I'm honest I didn't see it work, though I only died twice out of my 40 lives.

    NinETaiLShuBZCan you use the cheat codes to help with this does anyone know?

    Rubber Ducksss@NinETaiLShuBZ I've just started the game again, doesn't look like you can use any cheats as its a brand new game mode.

    SL1CK CHR1SYeah this was not nearly as bad as I was expecting. I think I finished with 37 or 38 lives. Thanks to I'm Too Young to Die.

    brayargHiya, I just started this last night, disappointed it's the same Champaign again, I was expecting some original doom campaign from the 90s.
