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 shotgun and use it to kill the imp blocking your path, then open the lion door and kill some more imps waiting behind it. Go up the steps by the south wall to another door and open it, kill some zombies then climb over the crates to another door that has imps waiting behind it. Go up the steps to the left to kill two shotgun guys and a Hell knight, flip the switch behind them to open the next door then go down the steps to dispose of more imps (plus a revenant on Hurt Me Plenty skill level or higher). Go through another door at the end of the hallway to get outside and kill some demons and zombies hiding behind the metal columns, then go to the west end to find another door. Open this door and go up the steps behind it, then walk across some poles to reach the yellow keycard; taking the key causes imps (plus cacodemons on HMP or higher) to teleport in. Now go back to the switch you flipped earlier and kill a waiting baron of Hell, open the locked door next to it then step across some more poles to reach the red keycard - from here you can drop to the ground then open the door in the north-east corner to find a baron guarding the exit switch.
