This level occupies the map slot STR13. For other maps with a non-standard slot, see Category:Non-standard map slots.

STR13: Inferno is the thirteenth map of Stronghold: On the Edge of Chaos. It was designed by Brett Harrell (Mechadon) and Daniel Gimmer (Tormentor667), and uses a custom music track.

This level uses the "Deadline" mode, where the objective is to prevent any monsters reaching the deadline.

Walkthrough[edit]

Map of Inferno
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.

Essentials[edit]

You start in an open area near the center of the level - the deadline is the green circular pad in this middle of this area, and the four item pads can be found around it. The bars blocking access to the south side of the level will open just before the first wave starts, while the bars leading to the north side will open later on.

There are three passages at the south side of the level - the monsters will initially spawn from the middle passage, but from wave three they will also spawn from the east and west passages. On wave five the monsters will switch to spawning from three locations on the north side, and on wave seven they will switch back to the south passages. From wave nine, monsters will attack from both directions.

As with most Deadline levels, prioritize the demon-type enemies first as they will quickly reach the deadline if left unchecked. A smart bomb powerup will appear on the south side of the level just before wave nine starts - it can destroy monsters over a wide radius but can easily kill players as well.

A shotgun and two boxes of shotgun shells are placed in front of player one as the level starts.
