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.


Climb the steps in front of you to the top, then go round the corner and climb a second staircase straight ahead, passing one or more imps and zombiemen. At the top, go through the door in front of you then open the exit door in the south-west corner of the final room to find the exit button.

Other points of interest[edit]

After climbing the first staircase, flip the switch on the left-hand (north) wall to lower a lift and access the next room. At the south end of this room is a shotgun in an alcove; taking it lowers a wall to the east and reveals one or two zombiemen.


  1. In the exit room, open the plain brick wall in the south-east corner to reveal a platform with three armor bonuses and a chainsaw on it. (sector 71) Press any side of the platform to lower it.
  2. In the exit room, pass through the doorway in the north-west corner and you will hear a lift lower nearby. Run back to the door on the east side and pass through it, then run through the open section of the north wall before it closes to find five health bonuses and a supercharge. (sector 40)
  3. Go through the doorway mentioned in the previous secret and follow the corridor until you find yourself on a ledge overlooking the starting room. Jump down from here to the window below, then drop into an outdoor area with a medikit, an armor and shotgun shells. (sector 5)
