Map of Wayward Outpost
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.


Enter the room in front of you and kill some waiting zombies, then enter the hallway in the south-west corner and follow it round to a room with a blood pool and a teleporter. Enter the teleporter to go to the neighboring room to the south, then run east across a bridge - it will drop into the surrounding blood as you advance, so be prepared for some damage. After reaching the other side, continue east through the next room to enter a chamber with gray computer terminal; there are three exits from this chamber that lead to a small maze. If you go through the entrance in the south-east corner then go south, east, south, west and south you will come to a door. Open the door to see the blue keycard at the end of a hall, but watch out for the imps and spectres that are released on either side as you collect it.

Go back to the computer terminal room, then head west and south down a staircase to a storage area. Open the blue door on the west side to reveal another teleporter, enter it then press the button on the east wall of the next room to lower it, revealing a demon and one or two spectres. Approach the exit door behind these monsters to lower the north and south walls and reveal lost souls, along with spectres and cacodemons on Hurt Me Plenty skill level or higher, then collect the red skull key inside the north compartment and use it to open the exit door. Behind this door is a demon/spectre guarding the exit switch.

Other points of interest[edit]

This level contains a red keycard and a red skull key. Either may be used to open the exit door and the door in secret #3.


  1. At the west end of the map, open the wall to the west between the candelabras to find a teleporter leading to a crate near the start with a chainsaw. (sector 11)
  2. To the north of that secret are two health bonuses and an energy cell. A switch is to the east as well. (sector 140)
  3. Open the wall in secret #2 that does not have slime to find a corridor with a health bonus and a clip. If you have a red key (see secret #4), you can open the red door to get more health bonuses and a plasma gun. (sector 151)
  4. Use the switch in secret #2 and go to the eastern section of the first area. Fall into the courtyard for the secret, then head south to flip a switch that accesses another switch below. Flipping that one raises a bridge to the red key to the north. (sector 131)
  5. Grabbing the red key in secret #4 opens a hall to the west leading back to the start. (sector 142)
  6. In the maze area at the south-east end, go to the south-east end of the maze with health and armor bonuses. Open the wall at the end for a light amplification visor. (sector 101)
  7. Just before the door to the blue key area, head west and around the column to the south side. Flip the switch for a partial invisibility. (sector 99)
  8. At the south-west end of the maze, press on the darker section of wall to get a backpack on a crate. (sector 102)
