Hub 4: Transit


Map name: MAP33

Cheat code: visit33

Constable's Gate
Hexen: Beyond Heretic

Transit is the deathmatch hub in Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel. It allows the players to choose in which level they will battle. It uses the music track "Grove", or "Chess" if using Hexen's audio CD music.


Map of Transit

It features a small, octogonal room. There are no things other than the player starts: eight deathmatch starts and one regular start for each of the eight players supported by vanilla Hexen 1.1.

The walls on the four cardinal directions feature switches in front of which are written roman numbers in brightened sectors. The north wall features switches I and II, the east, south and west walls respectively feature switches III, IV and V. These switches lead to the other maps of the hub:

  1. Hub 4: Over N Under
  2. Hub 4: Deathfog
  3. Hub 4: Castle of Pain
  4. Hub 4: Sewer Pit
  5. Hub 4: The Rose

The small room is criss-crossed by linedefs which are triggered on impact, as are its boundary walls. If activated, the entire room turns into a crusher and the message "YOU DARE BATTLE IN THE READY ROOM? FOR THAT, YOU SHALL DIE!" is printed for all players.
