Extra levels
This level occupies the map slot MAP10. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:MAP10.

After the Programmer is destroyed, MAP07: Castle is replaced by MAP10: New Front Base. It uses the music track "March".


Spoiler Warning: Plot details follow.

Basically, this level is a replica of the castle but is controlled by the Front and has a few structural differences. Accesses to the training facility and the Programmer's keep are now blocked and the entrance to the audience chamber is replaced by a headquarters where Macil resides. Just across the HQ is the hospital where the player can find the medic Gerard and the trainer Feris, as well as a person named Justin who sells ammo and teleporter beacons. Near the main gate that leads to the town, there is a teleporter that leads directly into the HQ. Later, the player can access the new Front base from the borderlands as well. A teleporter can be activated in the central yard of that level, and it leads into the HQ of the Front base.

Later in the game, Macil becomes a boss that needs to be killed. If the player attacks him at any point after the castle has been conquered, the rebel troopers will help the player, although Macil is invincible to the troopers' attacks.

Spoilers end here.

Other points of interest[edit]

On the western side of the moat, there is a gate with statues on high platforms. When you enter the staircase to the southeast and continue to the south inside the building, you will eventually find a blockade with a little room. It contains 50 gold coins, phosphorous grenades, poison bolts and two bullet clips.


There are no official secrets on this level.


Four disappearing dead acolytes (Things 19, 20, 21 and 22) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they never appear in the level to begin with. Teleport map spots 1 and 3 (Things 91 and 96) also have no skill flags, but because of special handling in the engine, they function normally in the level.
