Map of Water Facility
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.


At the start, follow the hallway to the end and turn right. Drop down into the water, go around the platform in front of you and use the lift to the tower nearby. Flip the switch, fall down and go up the stairs in front of you. Turn left, cross the bridge, open the exit door to your right and press the switch to end the level.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. On the west side of the southwest tower is a small switch. Press this switch to open the door near the start of the level containing megaarmor behind it. (sector 91)
  2. The waterfall directly to the east of the bridge can be walked through, leading you to a box of shells, a shotgun, a stimpack, and the teleporter that will take you back to the start of the level. (sector 18)


It is possible to grab the megaarmor in secret #1 through the door before you open it by running into the door. No straferunning is required to pull this off, although it is best to start from the opposite wall.

Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]


This level does not actually follow the 1024×1024 map unit area restriction, as the exit and both of the secrets exist outside of that boundary.
