MAP53: Weapons Research Lab is the fifty-third map of DUMP Episode 3: BFG Edition. It was designed by Vennobennu and uses as its music track a MIDI sequence of "Dracula's Castle" from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, originally composed by Michiru Yamane.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After lowering at the start, use the recessed wall at the southwest end to get shotgun shells, a box of shotgun shells (Ultra-Violence or higher), partial invisibility, and a box of rockets (the latter two on Hurt Me Plenty or higher). (sector 10)
  2. At the west cave, head to the southeast side and open the rock there to find a soul sphere. (sector 75)
  3. At the southwest end, open the southwest door and use the back wall to get a super shotgun. (sector 133)
  4. At the east side, go through the central slimefall for a light amplification visor and a box of rockets. (sector 375)
  5. At the east side, after opening the north door, take the right door and you will see a teleporter. Before taking it, open a wall to the east, head up, then open a wall to the west. Enter the teleporter from here to get armor bonuses, a chainsaw, an energy cell, and a medikit (the latter two only on Hurt Me Plenty or higher). (sector 397)
