→Trivia: bulleted list
The alcove in the northwest corner contains a [[BFG9000]], a [[bulk cell]] and an additional exit switch (as the central exit is usually not reachable when using <tt>[[Parameter#-nomonsters|-nomonsters</tt>]] on deathmatch mode). However, this alcove is accessible only in [[deathmatch]] mode, after a player spawns inside and opens the door. The [[backpack]] at the start of the level is actually ten backpacks placed on top of each other. Picking "it" up will thus give the player a very large amount of ammo. "Dead Simple" is the first official map in the ''Doom'' series whose name is not a noun or a noun phrase.
