Vrack is a single level PWAD for Doom II released on November 12, 2000 by Fredrik Johansson. It requires a Boom compatible source port.

Vrack is set in a tech base floating somewhere in outer space, inspired to some degree by Dark Forces and also MAP04 of Dystopia 3 (which uses the same music, borrowed from Descent).

Vrack was followed by the similarly-styled Vrack 2 and Vrack 3.

Secrets[edit]

  1. In the cross-shaped hallway before collecting the blue key, head to the eastern arm. The eastern tech panel on the southern wall lacks a metal grid in front of it. Open this panel to reveal a secret room with a health bonus, an armor bonus and a backpack. Note that the footprint of the secret door (the panel) counts as the secret, not the compartment. (sector 98)
  2. From the northernmost area, head west and take the platform in the south up to a room with square metal panels on the walls. Press on the center of the western wall (secret is completely unmarked) to reveal a passageway with 11 armor bonuses. (sector 248)
  3. In the chamber with the red key, open the recessed wall between the two metal stripes in the east. This leads to a secret room with the letters "HISSY" on the floor, with a cacodemon guarding an invulnerability. (sector 895)
  4. After getting the red key, backtrack to the wide, darkened part of the corridor (just south from the outdoor platform in the east of the map). Look south to find that a part of the wall has opened, leading into a dark rectangular room (sector 903). You can find a soulsphere in the southwest of the room.
