Walkthrough[edit]

Map of Armageddon
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.

Essentials[edit]

You start in a building at the south-west corner of the level; the core is behind you as the level starts, and the item pads (including two health pads) are in front of you. The building has two entrances on its north and east sides, but you can run through the windows next to the powerup pad to leave the building quickly.

Monsters will initially spawn from two passages at the north-east end of the level, but from wave three they will also spawn from the east side of the level and from wave five they will also spawn from the north side. The north and north-west monsters will use the building's north entrance, while the east and south-east monsters will use the building's east entrance.

A shotgun and shells can be found by the health pads, and a backpack can be found on the powerup pad as the level starts. A chaingun and a box of bullets can also be found on a rock island in the middle of the level.
