Open the door and kill the shotgun guy and imps waiting outside, then follow the path west, south and east past more of the same monsters, along with an arachnotron that is released as you pass a red key door, until you reach the red keycard; taking it will drop you into a hole with a chaingunner. Flip the switch to raise the lift behind you so you can climb out, then go back to the west side of the level and open the red key door here to enter a small room with a super shotgun. Kill two revenants that are released when you take the shotgun, as well as two mancubi that teleport behind you, then collect the blue keycard inside the north compartment and go back to the starting area and open the blue key door here to confront a few imps and an arch-vile.

Activate the lift in the south wall and ride it up to the floor above, then go round the corner - a door will open to the south, revealing shotgun guys. Run across the gap to that door and open a second door behind it, then go across a bridge (noting the cacodemon that is revealed to your left) to reach a lever and pull it - this will raise the floor of the super shotgun room and open another door on the upper floor of that room. Run back across the gap and head through the door you just opened, then go north across a grid to reach the exit door. Watch out for an arch-vile hiding behind the wall ahead, along with a second arch-vile that teleports in once you open the exit door.
