MAP35: Factory: Production is a secret level in Strife: Veteran Edition. It was designed by Samuel Villarreal (Kaiser) and uses the music track "Tribal". It plays an important role in the re-release's talisman quest.

Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector numbers in boldface are secrets.


This level is a straight-up slug fest. There are no secrets, interesting NPCs, or side quests, only one extremely tough battle from beginning to end, including multiple confrontations with the mighty Inquisitor, two of which are in the first major room.

The goal of the level is to reach the temple ruins at the far end, which contain the red talisman, one of three ancient artifacts that occur in Strife: Veteran Edition. In order to collect the talisman, all crusaders on the map must be dead. Note that in Veteran Edition, the crusaders will not respawn during Bloodbath difficulty on this level, in order to make the feat possible.

After the talisman is collected, multiple templars will teleport into various areas of the map. It is recommended to use the teleporter which opens near the red talisman temple to avoid part of the trek back to the beginning.

Other points of interest[edit]


There are no official secrets, since the method of accessing the map is itself obscure enough that it is not required in order to attain the game's "Completionist" achievement. There is a teleporter which can be accessed in multiplayer via a deathmatch start, or after collecting the red talisman in single player. If the wall here is lowered and walked through from inside, the platform containing the red talisman will lower as well. This allows the item to be collected when the -nomonsters command line parameter or front end setting is in effect.
