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.


Follow the hallway in front of you to a room with some Hell knights (who are facing away from you) and a rocket launcher, then step on the metal square in front of you to lower a pillar with a BFG9000. Leave the room by the south-west doorway and follow the tunnel to a chamber with two knights (or revenants on Hurt Me Plenty (HMP) skill level or higher), then go through the doorway at the south end to find a plasma gun as well as an eye switch. Push the switch to open some bars in the previous room, go back to that room to dispose of some barons of Hell that have been released (plus one or two arch-viles on HMP or higher) then go through the north doorway to get outside. The yard is protected by more barons as well as a cyberdemon (two on Ultra-Violence and Nightmare); fight your way to the tunnel in the south-west corner and enter it to find the red skull key.

Go back outside and head for the red building on the east side of the yard, then open the locked door in the middle to enter a hall with knights, cacodemons and revenants. Go to the north-east corner to find a mancubus guarding a lion switch, which will raise some platforms in the middle of the hall, then run to the opposite corner to find a wooden lift that will take you up to the marble ledge with the knights. As you step off, two compartments in the east wall will open and release various enemies, including one or two arch-viles; fight them off then climb up to the white ledge and step across the platforms you just raised to reach the opposite ledge, where you will see the exit teleporter.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go through the hall at the start until you see a gargoyle face on your left. Use it to lower the wall and collect two rockets and an armor. (sector 19)
  2. Outside are four marble blocks with barons on them. Press the block nearest the tunnel with the red key to lower it and get an invulnerability (or supercharge on HMP or higher). (sector 63)
