Map of Valley of the Queen
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.


At the start, drop down the ledge and climb up the stairs slightly to your left into the building in front. Go around the central structure and flip the switch on the opposite side of the entrance. You can now enter the inner room and press the switch inside. Exit the building and at the bottom of the stairs turn left. Continue forward and when you're directly in front of a waterfall turn left again. Proceed straight ahead until you see a waterfall to your right: approach it and flip the switch next to it. Turn around and use both sets of stairs to get out of the water. Cross the bridge and move straight forward to exit the level.


  1. Jump into the water on the left side of the first valley and climb the steps up to the berserk pack. From there, drop to the south slowly until you reach the super shotgun and box of shotgun shells (it is also possible to go up the steps to the building, and strafejump to the west to reach this secret as well). (sector 45)
  2. Walk through the waterfall to the right in the first valley to find a plasma gun and an energy cell pack. (sector 140)
