Map of Gates To Hell
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.


Take the chainsaw and armor on your left if needed then head north down the steps, passing two spectres and an imp, until you see a door lower in front of you to reveal a large lava pit; a cyberdemon is waiting for you on the other side of the pit, and you will have to contend with some shotgun guys, imps, lost souls and cacodemons during the battle. Use the rocket launcher and supercharge in the south-west corner to help you destroy the cyberdemon; once it dies, the level will automatically end.

  1. Just before you reach the door, go through the south-west false wall to get a chaingun, a backpack and boxes of bullets. (sector 26)
