Two seconds after the level starts, the floor will rise and carry you up to a room with four mancubi; use the super shotgun in front of you as well as a rocket launcher at the south end of the room to kill them, then press the satyr switch on the south wall to open the east and west doors, which have cacodemons waiting behind them. Go through the east door to collect a chaingun, then head forward to a white-walled tunnel and be ready to kill the imps that spawn inside it along with a baron of Hell waiting at the first bend. At the end of the tunnel, kill two waiting spectres then go down the steps to a cavern where imps and lost souls are protecting a satyr switch. Press the switch to open it and reveal a nightmare demon as well as imps and a Hell knight, then fight your way past them to reach the yellow skull key. Taking the key will release two mancubi into the cavern, as well as spawning nightmare demons in the tunnel and two arachnotrons in the starting room.

Go back to the starting room and head through the west door this time to enter a brick corridor, then go round the first corner and kill three nightmare demons that spawn ahead before moving on to a T-junction. Press the satyr switch to your left to open a door on the right with two knights behind it, then go through and head forward until you run into some imps and demons that spawn ahead at another T-junction as well as behind you. Take the right (north) path at the junction and go round the corner to find two cacodemons guarding another satyr switch, push it to lower a platform with the red skull key then quickly go back to the junction and take the south path to reach the key (guarded by two more cacodemons) before it rises again. Taking the key will open a compartment behind you with four revenants, as well as spawning knights and a mancubus on the path back to the starting room.

Go back to the starting room and open the north door (requiring both keys) to confront a cyberdemon waiting behind it; you must kill the cyberdemon to lower two marble walls inside its compartment, revealing a hallway that leads to the exit teleporter.
