This level occupies the map slot MAP01. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:MAP01.

MAP01: Sanctuary is an area in Strife accessible from the town. It uses the music track "Action".


Spoiler Warning: Plot details follow.

In the town, Rowan tells you that you must kill Beldin who is about to reveal the location of the Front. As soon as you enter the Sanctuary, alarms go off and acolytes begin to attack. Using the crossbow that Rowan gave you, you must defeat the acolytes and get to Beldin. You can get some health and ammunition in the Sanctuary. When you get to Beldin, he refuses to talk to you and you must kill him. Once he is dead, he will drop his ring, and you need to take it back to Rowan. Rowan will reward you and give you the com link. It allows you to hear BlackBird for the first time. She leads you to the secret underground base where the Front is located.

Spoilers end here.

Other points of interest[edit]


There are no official secrets on this map.


Three silver fluorescent lights (Things 49, 50 and 58) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they do not actually appear in the level.

This level contains a, presumably accidental, voodoo doll as there are two player 2 start things in the starting room, one at the same position as the teleport landing. On the other hand, a player 4 start thing is missing, so cooperative play is only possible with up to three players.
