Serious Damage is an item in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, Serious Sam 2, Serious Sam HD and Serious Sam: Next Encounter.


Serious Damage looks like a floating version of the Serious Sam logo. When picked up, it doubles the amount of damage the player does for a certain amount of time, depending on the game. In Serious Sam 1 and HD, it gives the player 40 seconds, while SS2 gives the player 60 seconds. If someone has obtained the power-up, they will have a purple and red glow around them in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, a lava texture with a fire effect on the user's screen in Serious Sam HD, and a red-liquid-like texture will surround them in Serious Sam 2.


  • The Serious Damage 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.
  • Never use the XPML21 Rocket Launcher while in close quarters, as the resulting splash damage can easily leave you with very little health left, if not killing you outright.
  • 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.
  • Serious Damage also helps to conserve ammunition.
