Map of E2M2
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.


Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Directly north of the start (at the top of the stairs) is a secret door which opens on shooting to reveal a berserk. (sector 232)
  2. Symmetrically opposite #1 is a secret door which opens on shooting to reveal an invulnerability. (sector 248)
  3. Head up the stairs west of the start, go across the crossroads, and approach the door. Two alcoves open - entering the southern one lowers the northern one, allowing access to a passage with a secret door to the east (marked with a different texture) leading to a switch. This lowers a platform in the crossroads with a chaingun. To obtain the chaingun, approach it from the east - other sides will teleport you. (sector 236)
  4. Just before the exit is a nukage pit - press the switch on the west wall here then teleport. A plasma rifle has lowered which can be collected from its northern side - other sides will teleport you. (sector 265)
