Duke Nukem Wiki
This page refers to the level in Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown. For the Duke Nukem 3D level, see Faces of Death.

Faces of Death is a secret level in the Plug 'N' Pray episode of Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown. The level can be reached via a secret passage on the level Alien Rendezvous.


Level designer Ian Boffin created this level by modifying the original Faces of Death map from Duke Nukem 3D by Allen Blum. The map is largely unchanged from the original, except that it now contains an exit button.

The level features seven Battlelord Sentries and no other enemies.


There are two secret areas in each of the two lava falls. One contains Armor, and the other contains an Atomic Health.
