Duke 3D Secrets

Episode 1: Level 1

Secret Areas (8 found out of 8 total)

  1. After dropping down the vent to the street, jump onto the crate to your right, then to the building ledge, and finally to the ledge in front of the billboard. An RPG will rise up from the ground to greet you.
  2. Jump on to the crate and then the building ledge again, then thru one of the windows. Technically, the area in front of the RPG ammo counts as the Secret.
  3. While in secret place #2, walk up to the large poster at the end of the hall and open it to reveal a stash of steroids.
  4. Behind the theatre snack counter, use the cash register to reveal a secret alcove near the ceiling on the wall to your right. Walk up to the wall beneath the alcove and slide a little to your right. Click on the wall and a small platform will boost you up.
  5. In the projector room, there is a secret door on the wall next to the fire extinguisher. This secret is also reachable from the bathroom by shooting a hole in the air vent over the stalls. You'll find some aliens, some shotgun ammo, and a cacooned woman.
  6. Also in the projector room, jump on top of the projector to open a door concealing a secret area with a alien and an RPG.
  7. After opening the curtain in the projector room, use an RPG or pipebomb on the center of the movie screen to find some aliens, some more shotgun ammo, and a jetpack.
  8. There's a secret area in the building behind the palm tree next to the theatre's front entrance. Near the end of the level, you'll have to cross a small bridge, overlooking the back entrance to the movie theatre. Before crossing, drop down to the ledge underneath the doorway leading to the bridge. Walk around the ledge to the front of the building, all the way to the palm tree. Jump on top of the tree and then through the window of the building. Inside you'll find a shotgun, an RPG, a chaingun, and some pipebombs.

Bonus Areas

  1. After finding Secret #3, go out one of the windows next to the poster and land on the ledge. On the far end of the ledge is a healing atom. This can also be reached from outside, by first jumping on the edge of the burning dumpster, then to the top of the no parking sign, and finally to the ledge.
  2. Jump on the garbage can outside the arcade entrance and then hit the spacebar to open the hidden alcove above you. Jump in to the alcove to get some night vision goggles, some pipebombs, and a small healing kit.
  3. Inside the arcade, use the Duke Nukem II video game to hear a great one-liner and reveal a holoduke hidden in the wall.
  4. You'll need a jetpack to reach this bonus area. Starting in front of the movie theatre's back doors, fly straight up. Eventually, you'll reach a small alcove, guarded by two gun turrets. Destroy the two turrets, so you can reach the jetpack and two boxes of shotgun ammo safely.
  5. Use a pipebomb or RPG in the air shaft in the bathroom, where it makes a 90 degree turn. You'll find a small niche containing a Holoduke.

  4. This sewer area is accessible two different ways: a) After reaching the yellow key in the reckage of the demolished building, use an RPG or pipebomb to blow off the nearby sewer lid. b) In the dance club bathroom, use the toilet (not a urinal). This will unlock a secret door behind it, which leads to the sewer area. Inside you'll find an octobrain, some pigcops, a cocooned woman, and many items.
  5. As you enter dance floor through the garage door, there's a bench in the corner to your left. When you step on the bench, a secret door behind the two dancing girls on the opposite wall opens. You'll need to run to make it in time; you can repeat the sequence as many times as necessary to reach it. Inside is a chaingun and some ammo.
  6. Blow open the air vent in the corner of the dance floor. Use the table to jump into the vent. It leads to backstage; along the way, you'll find a healing atom.
  7. This ledge next to dance floor curtain controls holds a pair of night vision goggles. Jump to it from the ledge leading to the dance clubs's attic from the stage.
