E1M3: Command HQ is the third map of URE2020: Unexpected Retro Experience. It was designed by Zylinderkatze and uses one of the following music tracks: "I Sawed the Demons" by Robert Prince (base WAD), untitled track by Amaury Laurent Bernier (when loading base WAD with URE2020A.WAD) or "Tomb Sweet Tomb" by Nathan Maxx (Lippeth) (when loading base WAD with URE2020L.WAD).

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the south building, enter the room with the red floor and enter the bathroom. While the door is open, go on the toilet, then the sink, then the block to the south, then the couch, then north to the bed to get a backpack. (sector 127)
  2. Leave the south building to the east and head to the wall north of the steps. Lower it to find a shotgun guy. (sector 148)
  3. Keep going after Secret #2, opening the door and heading to the dead end. The floor will rise, so open the door to get a chaingun and a box of ammo. (sector 164)
  4. Leave the south building to the east and head to the southwest wall. Open it to get a stimpack, an ammo clip, shotgun shells, and a radiation suit. (sector 621)
  5. In the room south of the blue key, open the south door and the metal wall after it to get a chainsaw (not on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower). (sector 209)
  6. Open the blue door in the hall north of the entrance hall and take the southwest door. Use the north wall here, then use the computer to open the west wall. Go there, approach the wall where the switch is, return to the computer, then go on it and use the back wall, then go back to the walled-in switch to find the wall is gone. Use the switch to head west to get a green armor (megaarmor on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower). (sector 530)
  7. Use the switch west of Secret #6 and use the southwest wall. This opens the north wall as well, which has a berserk pack. (sector 315)
  8. After getting the yellow key, head back to the room with the crates at the north end. Open the north door and head to the southwest end. Using the recessed crate reveals a switch, which lowers a crate in the middle allowing you to get ammo, shotguns, and backpacks. (sector 265)
  9. Open the blue and red doors at the east side to reveal the exit teleporters. Go to the east wall and look southwest to find a switch. Flipping it opens the east wall, revealing the secret exit. (sector 359)
