L.A. Rumble is the fourth level in the episode Shrapnel City in Duke Nukem 3D.

Secrets Edit

  • At the start of the level, there is a crack on the wall to the right of the Sewer exit. Blow it up and grab the Freezethrower to get the secret. This also allows access to the ledges on the street.
  • The room where the blue key is holds the second secret.  On the counter on the wall opposite the key, you will see a knife on a counter.  Search on the counter there, and a room will be revealed with an Atomic health.  Go in to get the health to get the second secret of this level.
  • In the building you get to by jumping toward the East Town Towers then through the window, go up the stair and use the painting with the trees for a secret and Devastator ammo.

Hidden compartments Edit

The following hidden compartments are not counted as secrets.

  • Next to the Red Key is a cabinet with RPG ammo and Devastator ammo.

Easter eggs Edit

  • "East Town Towers" is a reference to id Software, makers of Doom & Quake (and other games). At the time, id Software was in an office tower in Mesquite TX named "Town East Towers". The "East Town Towers" building in this level also resembles the real life building.
  • When Duke says "I ain't afraid of no Quake" after triggering the earthquake in this level; it was a reference to the 1st release in the Quake Series at the time. Duke 1.3D came out on January 29, 1996; five months before the 1st Quake was released in June 22, 1996.
  • Visible when using noclip - at the level exit, head outside through the window and look around for the message "YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE... EITHER -- LEVELORD"
  • The corner of the map has the letters SUYT.

Trivia Edit

  • This level was discovered to have quite a few glitches in it, like most of the levels in Duke Nukem 3D. One glitch allows the player to reach the top of a building by using the "Jump-Duck-Jump" glitch on a certain spot of the building to reach the top and access the Jetpack earlier than intended. This glitch is more commonly used in Dukematch as well as speed-running.
