This level occupies the map slot Z1M10. For other maps with a non-standard slot, see Category:Non-standard map slots.

Z1M10: Penultimate Evil is the second secret level in Knee-Deep in ZDoom, accessed from Z1M7: Computer Station. Unlike other KDiZD levels, it revisits areas from many of Ultimate Doom's later levels. Images of these areas can be found in the screenshots section below. Interestingly, the skybox used in the level suggests that it takes place on Deimos.

Accessing this level[edit]

To access this level, the player must satisfy the following prerequisites by the time they complete Z1M7: Computer Station:

  1. The player must have accessed and completed Z1M9: Military Base;
  2. The player's cumulative Kills, Items, and Secrets stats must each be at least 90%. (This can be viewed after finishing any level.)

Or, alternatively, if they do not satisfy both prerequisites above, they must have completed every level through and including Z1M7 (Z1M9 is not required) in under the par time.

If these conditions are satisfied, the cutscene played when the player enters the next map will be altered, and they will be sent to this level instead of Z1M8: Phobos Anomaly.
