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.


Take the super shotgun and boxes of shotgun shells and use them to kill the imps in front of you, then go through the open door to a water area with more imps as well as some spectres and other monsters. Head south-east until you reach a marble brick wall then go through either opening in this wall to find two concrete bridges leading to a crowd of imps guarding a rocket launcher and the blue skull key. Be ready to fight when you take the blue key, as more imps will teleport in along with cacodemons and four barons of Hell. (Running through the nukage between the bridges and climbing up the steps to return to the water area is recommended, as the monsters cannot walk through the marble wall.)

Return to the water area and head north-west until you reach a gray brick wall, go through either opening and run across two wooden platforms to reach another rocket launcher - watch out for cacodemons and Hell knights that teleport in behind you. Press the skull switch behind the rocket launcher to raise some more platforms going east and west and follow these to some stone steps, then run up the steps to jump to a ledge with a baron guarding the red skull key. With both keys, return to the water area and open both locked doors in the north-east wall to reveal imps on I'm Too Young To Die and Hey Not Too Rough skill levels, knights on Hurt Me Plenty or a cyberdemon on Ultra-Violence and Nightmare. Push past these enemies and step on the patch of sky in the middle of the room to finish the level.
