|“||When active, the Doppleganger will spawn an image to the player. This "double" is meant to confuse your opponents and draw fire away from you... and it works!||”|
—Ground Zero Manual
Quite similar to the Holoduke powerup in Duke Nukem 3D, the Doppelganger creates a stationary clone of the player in order to distract other players long enough to get the drop on them. The illusion will explode when fired upon, making the deception obvious, so it is important to quickly take advantage of its temporary misdirection.
The Doppelganger is useful for throwing off other players' aim, or to make a camping railgunner reveal his position.
