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.


From the start, make your way past the various areas until you reach a room with the yellow key on a pillar. There's a torch to your right: move past it and you'll spot a switch, flip it to lower the pillar with the yellow key. Open the yellow bars in this room then move forward, turn right and go around the cube to find more yellow bars. Go through them,turn left and continue forward, minding the megaarmor in an alcove. Once you're in front of a lava pool turn left again and move straight ahead to find a switch. Return to the megaarmor alcove, turn around and move forward. Go around the pillar and press the switch to lower the elevator. Once it finishes lowering, take either side exit and move to the opposite side of the lava pool to find a window. Drop down from it and approach the middle to spot a BFG9000 and a megasphere. Take the items then make a hairpin turn to the left to find a switch. Now, move to the right side of the room and enter the teleporter to trigger the death exit.


  1. In the starting room, there is an indentation next to your starting point. Lower the wall at this indentation to receive a berserk pack. (sector 107)
