Serious Damage is an item that, when picked up, it doubles the amount of damage the player does for a certain amount of time, depending on the game. Its appearance is based on the logo from the Serious Sam games.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Serious damage appears as a floating version of the Serious Sam logo. In most of its appearances, it gives the player 40 seconds of double damage, while in Serious Sam 2, it gives the player 60 seconds. If the player has obtained the power-up, they will have a purple and red glow around them in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, Serious Sam: Xbox and Serious Sam Classics: Revolution, a lava texture with a fire effect on the user's screen in Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter and Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter, and a red-liquid-like texture will surround them in Serious Sam 2.

Occurrence[edit | edit source]

  • Serious damage can be found in secrets as well as scattered throughout levels. If a serious damage is found normally, then it's usually a big sign that the player is going to fight off a large horde very soon.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • Serious damage is a very useful item against hordes of enemies. It is particularly useful when paired with a rapid-fire weapon, such as the XM214-A Minigun or XL2 Lasergun, as it gives them the strength to quickly slice through hordes of enemies.
  • The player should never use the XPML21 Rocket Launcher or fire grenades while in close quarters, as the resulting splash damage can easily leave the player with very little health left, if not killing them outright.
  • Serious damage also helps to conserve ammunition.
