Map of Autumn in Hell
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, go up the stairs and make a hairpin turn to the right. Drop down into the opening in the nukage slightly to your left and use the lift to your right. Make another hairpin turn to the right to raise some stairs leading to a switch. Flip it and go back, down the stairs and go through the room to the left. Collect the red key here then retrace your steps back to the nukage. Go through the teleporter, face left and open the red door to find the exit switch.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the southeastern part of the level, press the western skin panel near the southern wall to reveal a backpack. (sector 38)
  2. In the center of the map, southwest of the teleporter, you will find a hole in the western wall. Deep within this hole is a switch. Shoot it, and a pillar will rise from the nukage right where you stand (in front of the switch). It functions like an elevator once it stops moving and leads to the alcove containing 4 shotgun shells, a box of bullets, and a medikit. (sector 59)
  3. To the east of the red key, approach the stairs, and the wall will lower in front of you (further east), allowing you to access a health bonus, a clip, and 4 shotgun shells. (sector 129)


This level does not contain a Player 3 start position, preventing cooperative multiplayer games from being played with three players or more. On the other hand, there are two Player 2 start positions, potentially causing a voodoo doll to be generated to the left of player 1.

The backpack in secret #1 can be obtained without lowering the panel by straferunning at it from the opposite wall.

The switch found at the top of the building stairs (linedef 889) has a garbled texture. This is a nodebuilding error caused by the then-current version of ZDBSP, which occasionally did not write a level's SEGS data correctly.
