Map of Language Barrier
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.


Go down the winding hallway, take the blue keycard, go back to your spawn (teleporting demon corpses direct you to go there after you pick up the blue keycard) where there is a blue marked door. Open it and only take the red keycard, go back to where the blue keycard used to be and open the red marked door. Open another red marked door behind it, go through the room full of frozen cyberdemons and take the yellow keycard to the right. Go back to where the blue keycard used to be and push the yellow marked skull button. The wall it is on will rise to reveal a couple of teleport pads, step onto one of them.

Other points of interest[edit]

  1. If you go through the first exit door that you see when you pick up the blue keycard, a bunch of barrels will surround you and get you stuck in the room. If you push the fake exit switch it will reveal a stuck spider mastermind. You can survive the death trap, but if you want to go back to reopen the fake exit door, you will die.
  2. If you take the first yellow keycard instead of or with the red keycard, a spider mastermind will spawn and the hallway behind it will be shut down, and even if you successfully kill the spider mastermind, you will remain stuck anyway.
  3. If you take the left second yellow keycard in the frozen cyberdemon room first, all of them will unfreeze.
  4. If you take the super shotgun, revenants will lower down and kill each other.


There are no official secrets in this map.
