I started playing DoomRL today, and have already maxed out my inventory with a bunch of duplicates of weapons I already have, mostly pistols. Is there any way for me sell these, or should I just use up what ammo they have in them and then drop them?

Woah, I never expected such a question :D.

No, there are no shopkeepers in DoomRL, nor will there ever be. Duplicate guns are useless, unless:

  • you want to quickly swap between them (using Prepared slot)
  • you want to mod some of them later
  • a second pistol might be useful if you want to go for Dualgunner
  • BFG's are nice to carry cells (they carry 100, while a cell stack is 50)

Also, note that using "U" you can unload a weapon on the ground or in the inventory.

Should that be "duplicate guns are not useless"? – au revoir Dec 7 '11 at 2:59
...or "duplicate guns are useless, unless:"? Great answer. – Cory J Dec 7 '11 at 3:38
@jason, a peculiar typo between useless and unless :P – Kornel Kisielewicz Dec 7 '11 at 8:27

There are no shopkeepers in the current version of the game. Scavenge the ammo and ditch the guns.
