How to Unlock the Secret Levels in Doom 2

There are two secret levels in Doom II for PC that are based on the classic FPS game Wolfenstein 3D.

How to Get to Level 31

To access the first secret level without using the level warp cheat, you must find the secret exit in Level 15: Industrial Zone.

  1. Activate the switch in the southern part of the lava lake.

  2. Go to a newly opened area on the east side of the map and pick up the invulnerability powerup.

  3. Run to the nearby teleporter in the lava on the southwest side of the diamond building.

  4. After teleporting, run up the stairs and fall off the ledge, then go through the door and follow the lava river.

  5. Take the branching path on the left side to find the secret exit.

The secret path will be inaccessible if the invulnerability powerup is no longer active.

How to Get to Level 32

The entrance to the second secret level is hidden in the first secret level:

  1. Enter the last room of the level (with the 12 SS guards and an elevator) and immediately turn right.

  2. Interact with the wall near the southeast corner of the room to activate an invisible panel and open a secret door.

  3. Go forward and turn right, then interact with the wall to activate another secret panel, which reveals another path that leads to the secret exit.

Doom 2 Easter Egg

There's an Easter egg hidden near the very end of the game that's very easy to miss. In the last level, use the IDCLIP cheat and walk through the final boss to enter a hallway where you'll find the disembodied head of the game's director, John Romero. Shoot his head to beat the game.
