Map of Into the Dark
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 super shotgun and shells in front of you then open the red door to enter a storage room with chaingunners on top of the crates along with imps on the surrounding walkway. Drop to the floor below and head to the north door, then go through it to enter cavern with imps, demons and revenants; after clearing the way, head north over the lava stream to a larger door and pull the lever on your left to open it and reveal two barons of Hell flanking an arch-vile. Head through the door and turn left then walk straight forward (the door will close behind you) to some demons and a chaingunner who are protecting the red keycard; taking it will open a monster closet to the west containing more demons and a revenant.

From the red key, press the striped lift in the south-west corner to lower it and reveal two Hell knights, get on the neighboring ledge then follow it until you see a red lever on your right that will lower the walls on either side, allowing you to get back to the cavern. Return to the storage room and press the striped lift on the west wall to lower it so you can get on the walkway (watch out for a chaingunner hiding behind it) then open the locked door on the south side of the room to find two more revenants guarding another lift. Pull the lever next to the lift to be taken down to a tunnel with a few spectres, then head forward until you reach a door leading to a second cavern with some imps and zombies. Press the button in the north wall to open part of the south-west wall and reveal revenants and a baron guarding a second button, which will lower the blue keycard in the middle of the cavern. After taking the blue key, open the west door to find a cacodemon (or arch-vile on Ultra-Violence and Nightmare skill levels) guarding a dark passage that you can enter to finish the level.

Other points of interest[edit]

A rocket launcher can be found on top of the south set of crates in the storage room, opposite the lift.

In the first cavern, follow the lava stream west until you drop into a darker tunnel. The tunnel leads to an armor and a medikit, along with a teleporter that will return you to the cavern.


There are no official secrets on this map.
