Map of Forgotten Catacombs
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.


This is one of the smallest maps in the game, an S-shaped cavern lined with cages and spooky side-chambers, and populated with a handful of small ghoul hordes. After climbing the small flight of stairs at the end of the cavern, Rick will encounter two Topheavy Demons as a miniboss. Killing both opens the door to one last ghoul horde guarding Jenny's Spirit and the exit switch.

Other points of interest[edit]

The first door on the left hides a Potassium Bomb. Behind the first door on the right is a crypt which houses the Baseball Bat, which makes smashing through groups of ghouls easier and much more satisfying.


  1. At the northernmost end, lower a shelf to get a terror mask. (sector 114)
