Grab the chaingun, but watch out because if you make noise, demons will appear around you. At this intersection, head west, up the stairs to a switch. Hit it and head through the door that opens to the right of the chaingun. Through this hall, the red door is in front of you, but since you cannot open it yet, go left when you reach it. Through the next door is another outdoor area. The small set of steps next to you leads to some lava pits. Try to avoid these, and climb up the next set of steps and head for the door to the north. Behind this door, follow the path down to a room with a blue door which you should ignore for now. Keep going down the path that leads generally eastward, through the dark gray metal hall. When you reach the blue door, keep going west, following the dark path through wires and metal. In the light gray room, keep going east through the next door and you should see the blue keycard in a room with a baron of Hell and a Hell knight. Grab it and head through the blue door. This is the same one you passed up earlier. Now, head back through the path you went until you find the other blue door you passed, fending off cacodemons as you go.

Through this blue door, head back to the outside area, but turn left and find another blue door, where you will find a room with a blue floor and several methods of travel. Go through the lower right passage first, till a big room where you should find the northeast passage here. All the way down this passage should be a switch; the door on the ground floor opens when you press it. Go back to the blue room and take the upper right passage, through the open door this time. In this room, the red keycard is in the computer room. When you get it, a baron and some Hell knights will teleport into the level. You will then have to backtrack to the red door you passed which was close to the beginning. Head back to the outside area taking the door on ground floor and the red door should be to the left. Head through here, then head right to the exit.
