E3M6: Obituary Written is the sixth map in episode The Evil Unleashed of 2002 A Doom Odyssey. It was designed by Christian Hansen and uses the music track "Intensity" by Paul Corfiatis. In the 10th anniversary edition only a few very minor geometry changes were made that aren't visible in the map, and four radiation suits were added.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. North from the starting area, head west. At the top of the steps, make an angled jump to the northeast fiery area where the cacodemon came from. When you make it, walk through the fire wall to get rockets and a megaarmor. (sector 78)
  2. Ride the lift up where the blue key is. Look to the west from there and shoot at the marble face, then drop down and backtrack until you reach the small tunnel where the chaingun was. To the south from it, you will find an open room with a plasma gun and an energy cell. (sector 321)
  3. East of the yellow key, use the gargoyle switch (not the marble one) to reach a teleporter, taking you to the nearby ledge. The switch at the base here can be used to get the BFG9000. (sector 207)
  4. Once you have the red key, go to the lava area at the north end of the map and find the red bar. Enter the corridor near it and open the door, then head up the steps for the room to darken. Look back (west) and shoot at the red button, then leave the area and go back to the starting point. Enter either compartment at the southwest and enter the corridor there. At the corner, walk through the fake wall to find a secret switch. (sector 275)
  5. With the switch from Secret #4 flipped, head back to the top of the steps mentioned in Secret #1. A new bridge has been raised, leading to a teleporter, which actually opens a lift leading down to another switch. This switch will allow you to access the secret exit, which is in the blue key area behind a fake wall to the north (some imps may have attacked you from there, for reference). (sector 278)
