Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the hallway immediately after the red door, there is a portion of the northern wall that shows up on the automap as a different color. Press on this part of the wall to find a super shotgun, multiple armor bonuses (31 on skill 1-2, 28 on skill 3, 24 on skill 4-5), and several health bonuses (20 on skill 1-3, 14 on skill 4-5) behind the graveyard. (sector 1234)
  2. Near the center of the cave leading to the yellow key, there is a misaligned section of wall near the northernmost torch. Press it, and drop onto the ledge below to find a megaarmor. (sector 414)
  3. At the southern part of the cave, across from secret #2, there is a section of the cave wall with a different texture than the rest. Press it to find a supercharge. (sector 445)
  4. In the southwestern room of the southwestern, brown building after the yellow door, there is a misaligned section of the wall near one of the beds at the east. It can be pressed on to reveal a supercharge. (sector 1236)
  5. Behind the baron of Hell's desk in the same building as secret #4 is a switch. When you walk through the doorway at the southern part of the building, a section of the desk will lower, letting out the baron, but also allowing you to access the switch. Press it to open a closet containing three rockets and a rocket launcher. (sector 1228)
  6. To the west of the gray building at the northwestern part of the map is a hole in the hall. Enter the gray building, leave through the southwestern door, and use the rubble to climb into the hole and find 24 armor bonuses. (sector 1025)
  7. Inside the gray building at the northwestern part of the map, the eastern window opens into a view of the alley between the brown brick buildings, with a button in the middle. Shoot this button with any impact weapon to open a doorway from the northern, brown building. After entering the said building, head through the doorway at the southwest to get megaarmor. (sector 985)
  8. From the lake at the northwestern part of the map, you can enter a room from the northern side of the northern, brown building, containing three backpacks. (sector 1079) You must kill the cyberdemon in the same room using the crusher before you can reach them.
  9. At the easternmost part of the church, there is a section of wall with a candle sitting in front of it. Press it to gain access to a plasma gun, two energy cells, and one energy cell pack. (sector 688)
  10. After obtaining the blue key, head through the blue door at the south. In the room at the end of the hall, look to the northwest to find that an alcove has opened containing a box of rockets and a medikit. (sector 1194)


The ceiling of the door to secret #3 (sector 444) is 8 map units below the floor.

Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]


This level contains recreations of two video game consoles. In the building at the southwest of the level, there is an Xbox and a Super NES sitting side-by-side. In the building containing the cyberdemon, the room at the southeast contains another Super NES, hooked up to a television showing the player idling on Doom E3M4: House of Pain.

In the graveyard, there is a grave with a gibbed corpse on the top of the burial plot, with "Your Mom" engraved on the tombstone.
