Take the shotgun on your left if you need it (this will release two lost souls in front of you), then head north until you see a skull door on your right. Go through the door and kill a waiting mancubus and pain elemental, take the super shotgun on the east side of the courtyard then press the skull switch in the south-east corner. Take care of two imps (and a revenant on Hurt Me Plenty (HMP) skill level or higher) that teleport in near the door, then go through the door again and head up the steps on your right to find the red skull key being guarded by a Hell knight and zombies.

Drop through the window behind you to get back to the courtyard, then open the red key door in the north-east corner and kill a revenant (and chaingunner on HMP or higher) waiting behind it. Press the skull switch here to lower the pillar in the courtyard holding the yellow skull key, but be ready to kill an arch-vile, cacodemons and imps that teleport in before you pick it up. Press another skull switch on the south wall (between two yellow skulls) to reveal another switch that will open the bars on your right and reveal the exit teleporter; you will need to push past a knight (or baron of Hell on HMP or higher) and two shotgun guys that teleport in to reach it.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the steps north of the start. On this walkway, there are two skulls on the ceiling. Press use under the left one while facing south. This will open a closet directly south from your position containing a supercharge and a backpack. (sector 398)
