E4M9: Crazy Keep is the ninth and secret map of Death Tormention II. It was designed by Chris Harbin and Paul Corfiatis, and uses the music track "Jazzband" composed by the latter. In Death Tormention: The Complete Trilogy the map was included in slot E3M9 with minor geometric changes and the addition of radiation shielding suits.

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. After getting the red key, return to the starting point to get energy cells and a soul sphere. (sector 154)
  2. Head south from the red key and open the wall there to get a BFG9000, a medikit, and a megaarmor. (sector 155)


In the blue key area, if you carefully pass the door closing trigger (linedef 661, W1 Door Close, fast), but not the whole door sector itself, and immediately run back instead of proceeding forward when monsters appear, the door to the blue key (sector 143) will be permanently closed, making the level unbeatable.

Two armor bonuses (things 120, 121) in the central area are located outside the map bounds and cannot be obtained. A backpack (thing 116) and a stimpack (thing 265) are invisible, but still can be grabbed.
