Map of Open Season
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.


The start of the map shows a shotgun and two boxes of shotgun shells. When you advance, the floor will raise. You will see various monsters in the room ahead, and the room has a few shotgun guys and chaingunners that will try to flank you.

Proceed to the right to encounter a room with up to six imps. If desired, you can get a chainsaw in the right of the room. Proceed through the door, killing the chaingunner en route.

You will now enter the first chokepoint in the map; on Hurt Me Plenty, there are three Hell knights, three demons and any other enemies that worked their way into the area. Ultra-Violence and Nightmare will replace two knights with a mancubus. Try to work your way to the super shotgun on the left-side of the room, or make a quick run for it and loop around the room. After you deal with the enemies, you can take out another knight and collect the megaarmor in the central room.

Proceed north to the central area, head up the stairs and go to the right. After opening a door, you should see lost souls. Get past them to reach a ledge surrounding a nukage pit; at the end is a blue keycard.

Return to the central area, and head north through the blue door. Get the radiation shielding suit, go through the lift to reach the nukage pit; run along a ledge until you approach the yellow keycard. When you grab it, a chaingunner is revealed. Once the chaingunner is free, making any attack in the area will teleport cacodemons on the various platforms. While you can jump into the pit to avoid combat (using the switch on the first platform to escape), the cacodemons will still teleport in when you try to flee the area.

With the yellow key, return to the central area, and flip the switch on the south. This opens a door; follow the doors with yellow sidings which bring you back through the chokepoint and through a darkened maze. Proceed to the right of the maze. From here, you can continue to the room above the maze to collect a rocket launcher; the revenant guarding it is defeated easily with the chaingun.

The teleporter leads to the eastern ledge of the nukage pit. It has a few imps guarding the ledge, and has the red key to the north. If you have not killed the cacodemons, they will encounter you from at this location.

Return to where you found the blue key to flip the switch. This opens the exit in the central area. Head down the opened corridor and flip the switch to lower the exit. On I'm Too Young To Die and Hey Not Too Rough, this reveals an arachnotron; otherwise an arch-vile. On the harder difficulty, you can run past this monster to finish the level.


  1. Near the red keycard is a wall with a lightning symbol on it; open the wall to get a soulsphere. In multiplayer, it also contains a backpack. (sector 98)
