Map of UAC Executive Areas, Sub-Basement Entry
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 through the door on the right within view and go up the stairs in front. Go down the stairs to the left and enter the opening in this room to reach the outside area. Go down the stairs to your left then climb up the stairs in front to reach the exit teleporters.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the starting area, go down the stairs to your left (west) and press on the northern side of the northmost block to lower a supercharge. (sector 204)
  2. Come back to the starting area. This time, go south, then go up the stairs to the east, and open the door. Part of the wall straight ahead of you (east) is misaligned. Press it to reveal a room with six health bonuses, a backpack, and two boxes of rockets. (sector 99)


A megaarmor (Thing 193) in the east has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level. At the same position is an armor at skills 3-5, so the megaarmor was probably intended to appear at skills 1-2.

A box of shells (thing 189) at secret #1 snaps up to the descending secret sector when the secret is pressed.
