Map of The Gate
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.


Step into the arena and prepare to face a group of demons and lost souls that attack from all directions; if you need weapons, you can find a rocket launcher and 14 boxes of rockets in the north building, as well as a berserk pack behind it. When you are ready, press the button on the computer terminals in the middle of the arena to summon a cyberdemon, which will teleport to the four corners of the map before appearing on the center pentragram. The level automatically ends when the cyberdemon dies.
