Duke Nukem Wiki

Market Melee is the second level of the Duke Nukem 3D add-on pack Duke Caribbean: Life's A Beach.


Secret 1[]

Right at the start, after the bus crashes into your cell, you'll want to turn left into the alleyway. Blow a hole where the crack is to get to the side of the building and the first secret of the level. Contains: Coconut Launcher

Secret 2[]

As you exit through the red curtain and into the street you'll be looking at a multistory building. You can jump through the left-side window. Contains: Pearl Health

Secret 3[]

In a box room within the Asian market you'll find that you can jump on a stack of two boxes to get to the stack of three. On top of the stack of three boxes is a button that opens a nearby secret wall. Contains: Pearl Health

Secret 4[]

In the concert area, up top (where you get the Red Vista Card), if you look across the concert you'll see a button on the far wall. Shoot the button to open a nearby door. Contains: Crate of Bananas

Secret 5[]

Behind the boat, under the stairs, is a secret door. Use it to reveal the secret. Contains: Pearl Health

Secret 6[]

Ignore the boat for now, head up the stairs and open the door. This will take us back to the beginning of the level. If you use the "concert poster" in the store here, it will open up another concert poster right outside the store. This will reveal a larger area and within it will be secret #6. Contains: Coconut Launcher ammo, Pineapples, 2 x Super Soak’em ammo, Water Pistol ammo, Ice Crusher, Hot Sauce, 2 x Small Banana (in vents); underwater: Snorkle, Crate of Bananas, Bunch of Bananas, Single Banana

Secret 7[]

This secret is in the fish market you unlocked in secret #6. Inside you'll find a pool of water, jump in the water, swim to the bottom, and emerge a little further up. You'll find a bunch of goodies and the seventh secret. Contains: Suntan Lotion, 2 x Bunch of Bananas

Secret Exit[]

You can access the secret level from the previously mentioned fish market. In one of the side rooms you'll see a stall with some orange fruit. Jump into the orange stuff and fall into a sewer, there you'll see the exit to the secret level.


  • Cha-Cha, the singer with the fruit hat is a parody of Carmen Miranda.
  • The hidden message, "Aknot! Wot?" is the title of the main song from the movie, 'The Fifth Element'.
  • This Level also requires the Secret Exit to A Full House.
  • This level (and Mr. Splashy's) appeared in Grezzo 2, an italian Doom mod which is known for using resources from other Doom mods, and 2.5d games. In the Grezzo 2 version of level, you are in Saudi Arabia. The level is heavily reskinned, and modified in some ways.
