So I was going through some old wheat pennies and came across this 1945, any input for help would greatly be appreciated almost the whole reverse of the coin is what looks like extreme doubling, but I'm still learning the ropes in this world and may be wrong, grateful for any and all input and advice

Not a doubled die, classic acid damage, PMD.

Not positive it is acid, weight? Heat damage? or buffed too much?

I'm thinking acid damage. I performed an acid experiment on a couple copper cents many, many years ago--the results were very similar. Yes, exposure to heat can produce a somewhat similar look, but with somewhat less 'fine waviness'.

Don't think this was acid here. there are too many identical markings to the right of all the devices - of note the apparent heavy incuse gouge(?) on the right vertical side of almost every letter. I think that acid damage would be way more random. It looks like the planchet chattered while being struck.

Post mint damage, most likely from a blow torch.

I would like the weight of this coin. Something is fun here. Also if possible to see the sides of the coin on 90 degree of the waves orientation.

I do not exclude any theorem till now, but the waves, the R and O colors and also the letters and the left side wheat put me in balance. This was bonze not cooper, same base material which react different.

I believe that the images are distorted a bit. These do not appear to be clear and concise representations of the coin in hand to offer an opion other than the fact that the dots on the reverse seem to be somewhat elongated. But only more focused images will tell.
Are these images of the loose coin?
What is the background or medium the images were captured?
I find a definitive answer difficult to ascertain based on what I observe and highly respect the consensus that says acid is the culprit.
Again, I learn here.
