MAP07: Arachnophobia, designed by Haggay Niv with some editing by Yonatan Donner, is the seventh map of Hell Revealed. It uses the music track "Gazz!" from Rise of the Triad.


According to the Hell Revealed info pack:

You will have to be good at arachnotron-killing if you hope to finish this one alive on Ultra-Violence. This level is a huge spider (watch the automap!). Kill all the small spiders to raise the stair to the exit, and fight the big mother before you leave.
Size: small
Difficulty: medium


Map of Arachnophobia
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.


Take the lift to the main arena, and kill every arachnotron. A ledge will rise at the north end of the level leading to the exit. As long as you are skilled at circle-strafing, you should not have any difficulties completing this level.

Note that you do not need to kill the spiderdemon to complete the level.


  1. To the left and right of the exit switch (the eye) are two alcoves, which correspond to the mandibles of the "spider" visible on the automap. Although there is nothing in these alcoves, they are both tagged as secret. (sector 53)
  2. See secret #1. (sector 54)
