Begin by clearing out the immediate area of zombiemen, shotgunners, and imps. Move into the building in the north, and kill all of the enemies here too. Grabbing the berserk to the east will teleport in a revenant. Pressing the switch in the alcove to the west will drop walls with more shotgunners. One of these rooms contains the switch that lowers the elevator leading up to the fenced balcony.
Moving around to the stairs will drop a set of bars and reveal an ambush, featuring another revenant as well as more imps and shotgunners. A switch in their closet will raise the bars and allow you to continue up the stairs. At the top, more enemies will be waiting in the enclosed area as well as a chaingun. Moving outside, a switch to your right will raise a wall with chaingunners and the blue key. Grab the key, drop down, and use the switch near the start of the map.
This will drop you into a pit with some demons, imps, shotgunners, and a mancubus. Grab the rocket launcher and kill them all. The red key is on the other side of this arena. Grabbing it will drop walls with more shotgunners and revenants. Return to where you dropped and take the lift back up. In the alcove where the berserk was is a switch on the wall, which will open the door ahead with two more revenants, one teleporting behind you. Kill them, and take the teleporter to exit the level.
Other points of interest
- Hit the switch in the northwest part of the map to lower two closets. Enter the one on the left and press on the Incan face to lower the floor, fighting demons and imps down here. The teleporter takes you to the top of the wall at the start with health bonuses and a green armor. (sector 332)
- Just before the switch that reveals the blue key, you will be in a small area where one of the walls has a candle in front of it. Press on this wall for a teleporter which takes you to a new area where you can climb up for a soul sphere. (sector 378)
