This level occupies the map slot E1M3. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:E1M3.

E1M3 is the third map of BOBKDV2. It was designed by Bob Carter. It was later adapted into E3M1 of The Lost Episodes of Doom.

It contains a secret exit to E1M9.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the north-west part of the central area, there is a platform fenced-in on three sides containing a light amplification visor. This can be reached by using the two nearby blocks. (sector 19)
  2. The exit switch is revealed by walking onto a throne in the east. Walk off this throne to the west side - this lowers a platform near #1 containing a red key (there is also a light amplification visor on hard skill). The red key can be used to open a door in the south leading to the secret exit. (sector 82)
  3. Entering the southern arch from the north side teleports to an area with three partial invisiblities on medium and hard skills. Walking towards the south-east corner of this room raises a ceiling ahead as well as a ceiling behind, the latter leading to a lift leading up to a rocket launcher, a plasma gun (both weapons only present on medium and hard skill) and a soul sphere. There is also in invulnerability here in multi-player. (sector 94)


A box of bullets (thing 93) is placed inside one of the pillars surrounding the blue key area and is thus unobtainable.
