Map of Sector 2, showing the "1337" reference in the map structure.

Doom RPG contains a number of references to the geek subculture.

  • Entrance contains a computer supposedly running an Operating System called UACNIX.
  • In Sector 2, the player encounters a locked door. A scientist gives the hint that the code is related to the structure of the level. An examination of the auto-map reveals that the level has been designed to read 1337, which is the code for the door. This is a leetspeak reference.
  • The gProxy-Connection: keep-alive

e contains a number of computer consoles where map data can be downloaded. The player downloads this data using the Unix SCP program.
