Map of Sintlabs
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.


Open the door at the beginning and kill the zombiemen in the computer room. Head straight across to the next door and follow the path to the helipad outside. Flip the switch at the helipad here, and then return to the computer room to find the door to the right is open. Go down either staircase to reach the water. The door up ahead has two sets of bars blocking it. To remove them, you need to head through both side paths in the water to two switches, which will lower the two sets of bars. Now open the door and you will see the exit door through the window, and a door leading to the room it is in. Ignore this door and head all the way down the hallway until you find a switch. Press it to lower two walls in front of you revealing shotgun guys in the next hallway. Open the door behind them to find a room similar to the exit room with imps and a switch. Press this switch and then return to the door you ignored before to reach the exit room. The exit door is now open.

Other points of interest[edit]

Secret exit (ZDoom ports only): Enter the exit room, then run all the way back to the starting point to find an alcove with a secret exit switch. This will take you to a hidden warp zone, in which you can enter MAP10 or MAP27.


  1. The switch on the helipad has a switch directly behind it. Flip this switch and quickly run through the hallway to find a new opening with armor bonuses. Take the lift up here and open the door to grab a shotgun. (sector 53)
  2. In the long hallway surrounding the exit room, open the wall with pipes just before the switch at the end of the hall to reveal a room with a chainsaw. (sector 212)
  3. If you go behind the switch that opens the exit door, you will see a red arrow pointing towards the west. What you need to do is jump out of the window that is just southwest of the arrow to get outside. (sector 196) Follow the arrows and you will obtain a soul sphere.
