Duke Nukem 3D - Secrets for Episode 1
Duke Nukem 3D - Secrets for Episode 1
***** Episode 1 Level 1
* Underneath the Innocent sign (located outside) is an RPG. To get the RPG,
however, you need to do quite a bit of jumping. First, jump onto the brown
crate. Secondly, from upon the brown crate jump to the inclined roof (when
facing the Innocent sign it is on your left). Finally, jump to the ledge
just underneath the Innocent sign. Take note, the secret isn't the RPG, but
instead the ledge underneath the Innocent sign. Thus, it is possible to
trigger the secret and not obtain the RPG. Why exactly you'd want to do
that is beyond me.
* There is a hidden apartment near the Innocent sign. To reach it you must
jump on top of the brown crate located below the Innocent sign. From there
jump to the inclined ledge. Finally jump into the middle window to find the
hidden apartment which contains a box of ammo for the RPG. Be aware, you
are not credited with finding the secret apartment unless you move close to
the couch inside the apartment. That is what triggers the secret. Another
way to enter is jump on top of the parking sign located near the dumpster.
From there jump onto the ledge below the windows. The final step is simply
to jump into one of the two windows.
* Inside the hidden apartment there is a door that is being covered by a
poster. All you have to do is open that door by standing in front of the
"Attack Of Bleached Blonde Biker Bimbos" sign. Inside you'll find steroids.
* There is a hidden room inside the projection room that contains an RPG.
All you have to do in order to find the hidden room is jump on top of the
projector and the secret door will automatically open. Inside you'll find
an RPG. Beware though because also hiding inside that door is an enemy.
* There is a hidden door in the Projection room. To open it stand close the
fire extinguisher, but face the wall to the left of it. Inside you'll not
only find a box of shotgun shells, but also another entrance to the
venilation shaft. The other entrance is found in the bathroom. Thus, the
secret room that links the projection room with the venilation shaft can
also be found when you enter the venilation shaft through the bathroom.
* For two boxes of shotgun ammo and the all important jetpack it is worth it
to blow up movie screen even if there is a dancer. Turn on the movie
projector from the projection room and then go down to by the movie screen.
Use either a pipe bomb or RPG at the lower middle portion of the screen to
reveal this secret. The window on the left wall overlooks the back entrance
to the movie theater. Blow it away if you want a quick way out.
* It is a bit tricky to reach this secret room, but the chain gun, RPG,
shotgun, and box of pipebombs that are found there are well worth trying.
From the beginning of the exit bridge you'll want to fall off to the right.
You must stay very close to the wall because you are trying to fall onto the
small ledge that lines the wall. Follow the ledge all the way around the
building until you reach the front of the movie theather by the marqee.
From there proceed to jump to the top of the palm tree. Then, face the
building and try to jump through the windows that are just above the top of
the palm tree. You'll have to jump a little to the left or a little to the
right to be able to go through the windows because there's a divider
straight ahead. If you just can't seem to make it along the ledge to the
palm tree or jump through the windows and into the secret room, the other
alternative is to use a jetpack.
* To reach a full armor and a heal you can use the lift in the main lobby.
If it were only that easy though. First you'll need to push a button on the
cash register located in the main lobby. That will open the hidden door.
Next, you'll need to find the hidden lift which is located directly below
the door you just opened. Thus, the hidden lift is just to the right of the
"Attack Of Bleached Blonde Biker Bimbos" poster. You won't see the lift,
you just stand on the floor and try to activate it.
A holoduke can be obtained inside the venilation shaft by blowing away the
wall. The wall you'll want to blow away is the inside wall of the right
angle the venilation shaft forms. It is difficult to difficult to do this
without losing health because obviously using high powered equipment in
a venilation shaft is not a safe situation. Pipe bombs are the best way to
go if want to avoid losing much health.
By playing the Duke Nukem arcade game in the arcade you open a secret door.
Simply walk up to the game and try using it. Duke will say "Hmmm.. don't
have time to play with myself" which lets you know the door opened. It is
located behind the Duke arcade machine, but a little bit to the right.
Then proceed to walk up to the open door and take the holoduke. There is no
need to jump into the small niche containing the holoduke. However, if you
do and while your inside the door close, there is a toggle switch in there
that will open the door from the inside.
For quick access to the front of the movie theater you can blow away the
right wall of the ticket booth. You'll want to aim the RPG or a pipebomb
through the ticket booth's window at the right wall inside. This is best
done with a pipebomb so you can avoid loosing any health, but it also can
be done with the RPG and you won't lose any health if it is done properly.
If you try pushing the trashcan located in the main lobby next to the arcade
lift you'll open a door. However, in order to reach the door you need to do
two things. First, jump onto the trashcan you just pushed. Secondly, while
on top of the trashcan and facing the wall, jump. You'll see an open door
with a small medkit, box of pipebombs, and a pair of night vision goggles.
Simply move onto the ledge while you are in midair to and then collect the
items. The intended way for this to be done is pushing the wall when you
are on top of the trashcan to reveal the door. However, pushing the
trashcan is probably easier. Neither was is too difficult though.
While you are on the exit bridge turn on your jetpack and ascend as high as
you can. Once you reach the top you'll see two wall mounted guns shooting
at you. Blow them away as they do count in the enemy count at the end of
the level. Also you should notice a niche (behind you when facing in the
direction of the exit below) which contains two boxes of shotgun shells and
***** Episode 1 Level 2
* Inside the Forbidden Videos & Books there is a hidden holoduke and healing
atom. To reach this holoduke go to the back left corner of the bookstore,
behind the counter. From there jump on top of the bookshelf. Reveal the
hidden door by pushing against the wall in the corner. Inside you'll find
the holoduke and a healing atom.
* Lining the right wall of Forbidden Videos & Books are several book cases.
One of them is really a secret door. Behind the door is a RPG and armor.
The book shelf that moves is the third from the left when facing the
* When you begin to reach the end of the dark hallway past the locked door
in Forbidden Videos & Books turn to the right as soon as you can. Proceed
to walk forward until you hit a wall. At that point turn to your left and
go straight until you enter a lighted area. There you will find a healing
atom. This secret is best done when using the night goggles. Otherwise, it
will probably take you a few tries.
* There are two ways to access a hidden area which contains steroids and a
holoduke. The first, and probably more difficult way, is to go through the
sewer. In order to do this blow open the man hole cover which is found on
the demolished building. It is easiest to open the man hole cover with a
pipe bomb. Now, fall through the man hole and follow the sewage until the
end. At the end if you look to your left you'll see a dry area. The dry
area is ramp which leads upwards to the bathroom in the strip club. Along
the way up the ramp you'll see the holoduke and steroids. Unfortunately,
you cannot enter the strip club from the sewer because the door is locked.
Thus, the alternative way to do this secret is enter the only stall in the
strip club's bathroom. The back wall of the stall is a locked door which
can only be unlocked from inside. Once you open the door you'll be at the
top of the secret ramp which leads into the sewer.
* Near the back left corner of the dance area is a couch. By standing on
this couch you'll open a door on the right wall behind the dancers. The
door only stays open for a very limited amount of time so you'll have to
hurry to make it before the door closes. Inside you'll find a chaingun and
a box of ammo for the chaingun. Also, there is a toggle switch which opens
the door in case it closes while you are inside.
* There is a venilation shaft on the right wall in the dance area. It isn't
that the venilation shaft is hidden behind a door or anything it is just
hard to spot. You'll have to jump to reach it, but once blown away you can
get backstage. Backstage is were you'll find the exit. As you travel
through the shaft you will be able to pick up a healing atom and a box of
* A pair of night goggles can be found backstage on the raised platform next
to the lever that opens and closes the curtains. To get there up there
you'll need to use a jetpack. I'm quite sure this secret can be done
without a jetpack, but as of yet I don't know how.
* Backstage you'll see a raised platform the leads to two wodden crates.
Look at the wall behind these wooden crates. It is lit in only one small
area. That part of the wall is actually a door. Swing open the door to
reveal a box of RPG ammo.
In the back of Forbidden Videos & Books are two signs. One reads "No One
Under 18 Permitted". Follow the direction of that sign, left, until you
reach a somewhat long hallway lined with a blue curtain. Each section of
that curtain is actually a door to peepshow. Each of these contain an item
of some sort. The item is either revealed when a garbage can is shot at
or it is found in place of the peepshow monitor.
When you are inside the bathroom at Forbidden Videos & Books use the dryer.
This will cause a door to open in the middle of the bathroom revealing a
pair of night goggles.
You'll find the red keycard in the bar, but it is not out in the open. In
order to find it simply open the cabinet underneath the shelf with all the
wine bottles on it.
