Take the shotgun to your left, then head down the steps in front of you to an open area with demons, spectres and zombiemen. In the north-west corner is a red chamber containing a cacodemon - shoot the satyr switch behind it to reveal a second switch, and also lower a wall in one corner of this chamber that will allow you to reach that switch. Flip the switch then walk south to a wooden platform; stairs have risen by the south wall, allowing you to get on top of the platform and find one or two spectres protecting a gargoyle switch. After pressing this switch, head south until you get to the edge of a lava pit, turn left to confront some shotgun guys and a baron of Hell then go forward until you see a wooden bridge on your right that you can cross.

Kill any spectres waiting on the other side of the bridge then proceed west to a wooden door, which leads to a large white cavern - follow the cavern west, south and east past some lost souls (and a baron on Hurt Me Plenty (HMP) skill level or higher) until you reach another lava pit, then press another gargoyle switch by the north wall to raise a curving bridge from the pit. Follow the bridge to a ledge on the north side of the pit and press a lion switch guarded by some imps (there is a chainsaw hidden behind the switch if you want it), then go back to the starting point and proceed east over a wooden bridge to a caged area - some metal barriers here have lowered, allowing you to go down a staircase blocked by imps to a hallway with several zombiemen. Take the chaingun at the junction, then walk west to a lift and activate it to get up to a cross-shaped walkway - the yellow skull key is in the center, guarded by zombiemen, shotgun guys, imps and a cacodemon.

With the yellow key, ride the lift back down and head north at the junction then open the yellow key door on your right to confront a baron on HMP, as well as two cacodemons on Ultra-Violence and Nightmare. Go up the steps and slay two shotgun guys waiting to your left and right, then open the exit door ahead to find a demon protecting the exit button.

Other points of interest[edit]

Drop off the bridge next to the starting point to find a rocket launcher and several rockets.

In the white cavern on the south side of the level, a berserk pack can be found in a niche next to the window with the health bonuses.

After pressing the lion switch, step off the south-east corner of the nearby curving bridge to find that two metal barriers have opened, revealing a supercharge.
