Map of Mudbath
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.


You start in a small room, surrounded by one or more zombiemen. There are two paths running through the east and west sides of the map; they can be followed in either order, but both must be taken to reach the exit.

Go down the east staircase to a slime pit guarded by zombies, imps and a spectre, then press the button inside the alcove in the west wall to lower a nearby lift. Ride the lift up and kill the imps, shotgun guys and Hell knight waiting at the top, then walk north and west to find a skull switch - pressing it will lower a set of bars on the opposite side of the room. Head back to the starting point then go down the west staircase and repeat the process to reach a second skull switch in front of the bars you just opened; you can press this switch to raise it, allowing you to reach a chaingun guarded by chaingunners and imps. Walk into the slime pit to trigger an ambush by zombies, imps and knights, who you will have to fight off while waiting for the bars in front of the exit teleporter to drop.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the room immediately north of where you start the level, there is a brick wall with barely-visible seams to the west. Open it to find two health bonuses. Once you enter that alcove, a skull switch will briefly appear to the west, visible through the window in the same room. Shoot it, and it will raise a staircase in the exit area, allowing you to access a supercharge. (sector 105)
