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.


Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start of the level, open the lightning bolt panel in the northeast corner to find a box of bullets and a backpack. (sector 373)
  2. At the entrance into the room with the red skull key, a portion of the stone wall at the south is covered in moss. Open it to find a chainsaw and a partial invisibility. (sector 701)


In the red key area, three linedefs trigger bars to block the exit, while the switch to remove the bars can only be activated once. Re-triggering the bars after the switch has been pressed leaves the player stuck.
