Duke Nukem Wiki

Babe Land is the fourth level of The Birth in Duke Nukem 3D.

"Babe Land" is also the name of the theme park in which the level is based. The theme park revolves around animatronic female pirates who are shown fighting each other and taking men as slaves.


Secret 1: Fire extinguisher

Upon entering the shooting range after disabling the blue key forcefield, blow up the fire extinguisher on the opposite wall. Be prepared as 1-2 alien beasts will jump from the hole in the wall that the explosion created depending on the difficulty setting.

After killing them, carefully go inside that hole, watching out for the fires. Unfortunately the only thing you will find there is shotgun ammo.

Secret 2: Red Access Card

The room with the Red Access Card beside the shooting range is considered a secret. This secret is unavoidable.

Secret 3: Crack in the door

When you reach the slime river that has some wooden boats swimming along it, jump in one of these boats. After the first turn, there will be a small place on your right with a dungeon and some fire. There will be a pirate statue waving assault trooper's leg behind the bars and a dog sitting on the other side and ironically having the keys.

Blow up the cracked grey door behind the dog (probably along with the dog) and go inside a small corridor which is the place you were looking for. There will be RPG ammo inside.

Secret 4: Above the pirate ship

This secret will require a jet pack - if you do not have one, you can find it towards the end of the level inside the pirate fortress, after you open the big spotlight from the service corridor, on the right of the 4-button combination.

The secret located in the room with the ship model. You have to fly as high as the fake "sky" lets you towards the ship. Fly into the wall (faking a sunset landside) above the bow of the ship, right of the security camera. You might need to just fly along the wall trying to push into it to find the secret. The secret place itself is a ventilation shaft with atomic health.

Easter eggs

  • In the line up to the Babes ride, there are some TVs that show a cartoon mouse killing a cartoon cat with an axe. This is a reference to an episode of The Simpsons in which the Simpsons go to the Itchy and Scratchy theme park and watch an Itchy and Scratchy movie while waiting in line.


  • The animatronic mouse on this level is a parody of the greeters at Disneyland who dress in Micky Mouse costumes and try to generate excitement among the visitors. Similarly, the "Babes of the Caribbean" ride may be a parody of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride (opened in 1967) in Disneyland.
  • Babe Land is referenced in the The Doctor Who Cloned Me when, after having just jumped across a series of clone capsules, Duke quips, "That was worse than Babe Land!"
  • A shortened version of this map, Piracy, is a Dukematch map playable in Duke Nukem 64.
