Map of Temple Entryway
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


Use the berserk wisely.

At the start, face left and drop down the ledge. Turn right and move straight forward until you find a candle. Opposite the candle are some stairs so climb them. Continue straight forward and turn left at the end. Position yourself slightly to the right of the pillar, facing it, and drop down the ledge, landing on the red key platform. With the red key in hand, move towards the candle mentioned previously and you'll spot a door marked by two red torches, which is the red door. Open it to find the exit portal.


  1. Next to the red door, lower the wall with the candle in front of it for a passage to a chaingun and health bonuses. (sector 59)
  2. After stepping on the red key platform, quickly jump off and head right, until you see the teleporter. Enter it before it closes to reach a super shotgun. (sector 92)
  3. Go along the high ledge above the red key platform all the way back to the starting point, where you will find a megaarmor. (sector 130)
