Map of Phobos Garrison
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.


Go straight forward to a door and open it to enter a room with a large brick column, then go down the steps on the east side before continuing east and south until you walk over a gray step. Continue east into the next room and climb up the steps by the west wall to a switch, which will raise a bridge over the nukage trench to the south, then head over the bridge and step round the column in front of you to see a door ahead. Go through the door and head down some steps to see a few zombies guarding an exit door, which you can open to find a demon guarding a switch.

Flipping the switch will not end the level, but will instead drop you into an open area where a large number of zombies, demons and lost souls are approaching from the west. Use the chaingun below the fake exit switch to help you kill them, then enter the tower on the west side and flip the switch inside it to raise a bridge over the blood pool ahead. Cross the bridge and climb the steps to another exit door, then open it to find a cacodemon guarding the exit teleporter.
