Secrets[edit]

  1. The path heading south from the western red door has a door at its southern end, leading to a room with a cacodemon. This room has a secret door to the east, leading to demon and a partial invisibility. (sector 258)
  2. Part-way along the path between #1 and the red door is a secret door to the east leading to a backpack, a megaarmor, and two imps. There are two secrets here. (sector 202)
  3. See #2. (sector 203)
  4. Head east from the door to #1 through a door to a room with three pillars that lower and rise. There is a secret door in the south-west of this room leading to a box of bullets, an armor bonus, an armor, and a medikit. (sector 191)
  5. The large nukage pit in the centre of the level containing a baron of Hell has two ledges with shotgun guys. Both of these lower on pressing - the western one contains a health bonus and two armor bonuses, and leads to a box of rockets. (sector 92)
  6. The eastern ledge (see #5) contains two health bonuses and an armor bonus. (sector 93)
  7. After going through the first door, take the door to the east and head down the first flight of stairs. Ahead of you is a secret door leading to a medikit and a switch which lowers a pillar revealing a baron of Hell, a megaarmor, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 104)
  8. Take the door south of the blue door - as the path turns left, there is a secret door to the right leading to an imp, a switch, a box of bullets, and two armor bonuses. The end of this path has a secret door, which counts as a secret, which leads back to the area west of the blue door. (sector 214)
  9. North-east of the blue key is a room with a ledge surrounding a nukage pit. The switch near #8 raises a bridge to the centre of this pit, where there is a berserk, a plasma rifle, and an energy cell pack. Note that the switch has linedef action 20, which causes the bridge to lose its secret status on rising, and the pit is inescapable, so it is impossible to complete this level with 100% secrets in single-player. (sector 303)
  10. The wall immediately north of the chainsaw near the blue key lowers on pressing, revealing a backpack. (sector 319)
  11. After going through the blue door, you will ascend some stairs along which three alcoves with imps will open up. The easternmost one has a secret door to the east, leading to a cacodemon, a medikit, an armor, and a partial invisibility. (sector 388)

Bugs[edit]

The maximum achievable secret percentage on this level in single-player is 90%, due to secret #9 (above).
