The beginning of the end

MAP30: Hell Revealed, designed by Yonatan Donner, is the thirtieth and final map of Hell Revealed.


According to the Hell Revealed info pack:

The Hell Revealed finale requires skill, good aim and speed. Once you leave the protected area, be quick and destroy the evil demon before the area fills with hundreds of monsters. But can you aim with all that's going on around you?
Size: small
Difficulty: very hard

Grab all the goodies in the starting room, and leap into the pentagram that stands before your starting point. You will be taken to the main arena where the real fight takes place.

If you are playing on the higher difficulty levels, it is imperative to eliminate all enemies (especially the cyberdemon, arch-viles and revenants in the area) before tackling the spawn shooter. Otherwise, it will be impossible to launch a successful attack. Monster infighting can greatly help here due to the sheer amount of powerful enemies. If this level feels too difficult, just do not use any weapon (so the spawn shooter stays asleep) but run around to let infighting clear out the enemy.

Tackling the final boss basically requires the same strategy as Doom II; activate the switch behind your spawn point, run down to the platform with the megasphere (grab it if you need it), and time your rockets correctly. Be sure to watch out for airborne enemies or monsters with accurate attacks, such as arachnotrons and arch-viles.

If you need to go for another run, jump into one of the two teleporters at the bottom right below the spawn shooter's head and head back to where the switch is. There are a few supercharge artifacts, some energy cell packs and plenty of rocket boxes in the arena, so grab any if necessary.

The spawn shooter can be troublesome here, as it spawns four spawn cubes instead of one. As ammo is limited here, kill the final boss before he swarms you with his hellspawn. The final boss requires about 3 rockets to kill, assuming you get them all into his forehead.

Once you destroy the final boss, congratulations on beating Hell Revealed—if you have managed to survive this far, pat yourself on the back for completing this insanely hard WAD!
