Pigsty is the fifth level in The Birth in Duke Nukem 3D.

Secret exit Edit

In the court room at the end of the level, open the George Washington portrait behind the Battlelord Sentry. Inside is a room with a secret exit to Area 51.


There are 5 secrets in this level.

Secret #1: Robbing a house

To access this secret place, you need a jet pack. If you do not have one from the previous levels, it can be obtained a little later in the level or straight from the beginning by blowing the sewer cover on the street in front of the police station and jumping into the hole. You will find yourself in a room with a couple of enemies and jet pack.

When you have jet pack, start at the very beginning of the level. Turn yourself towards the building on the left with black windowpanes. You will notice a graffiti on the wall - you need to fly into the window right above it. Inside the room you will find RPG, devastator weapon, freezer, steroids and ammo for expander.

Secret #2: Phonecall waiting

When you enter the police station, head to the right of the wrecked car. There you will notice a switch on a wooden wall. Flip it, then go across the room where a telephone was - now it lowered into the floor, unveiling a secret place with atomic health.

Secret #3: Interrogation room

In the same room where the jet pack could be found, which can also be accessed from inside the police station by going left from the car wreck then left again and down a ramp, open the gray swing door. You will find yourself behind a one-way mirror in an interrogation room with some recording equipment.

Notice the diagonal, darker wall in the room - it will open when you use the hidden switch on the recorder below two trip mines. Inside the small secret room you will find an atomic health.

Secret #4: Execution room

Behind one of the doors unlocked by the blue keycard, where the red key switch is located there will be a desk of J. McClain. Next to it will be a tall bookshelf - simply open it, it will rotate around and lead you to a secret ramp. Go down along it and you will find another secret room - execution room where firing squad used to do its work. There will be an atomic health and 3 chaingun cannons.

Secret #5: Hidden champagne

Inside the room unlocked by the red keycard, simply open the huge map located behind the desk. There will be a small place with portable medkit and some bottles of champagne cooling in the ice.

Easter eggsEdit

  • In the room with the exit to Going Postal, there is a group of people hanging from a ceiling. This is a reference to the term "hung jury."
  • In this level, the player come across office tables of famous action movie characters like J. McClane (from Die Hard movies), H. Callahan (from Dirty Harry movies) and Judge Dredd (a 2000AD comic book character from England). Duke would say their famous one liners for each respective characters.
  • The level start out with a car crashing to the police station is actually a reference of the movie Terminator when the T-800 was about to start attacking the police station by ramming a car up the front desk. Player can hear gunshots and pigcops dying. Duke even hears the famous line "I'll be back", spoken by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • The Wanted list in the station are actually photographs of the developers of Duke Nukem 3D. By examining it, Duke will say "Hmm, book 'em Danno", a reference to the popular TV show Hawaii Five-O.
  • In one of the rooms there is a copying machine. By walking on it, Duke will copy his buttcheeks - a similar thing is possible in Duke Nukem Forever. The duke has a tattoo of " Lani <3 " on his buttcheeks, which is nickname of female voice actress Lani Minella.
  • When activating the middle computer screen in the surveillance center, a duck will appear with an exclamation mark - possibly an urge for you to duck, because an Assault Commander will spawn behind you, launching a missile.
  • Near Officer John McClane's desk there is a picture of the Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski.
  • At the front of the Judge's Stand, there is a symbol on there that is representative of the legal system of the United States. It should have "E pluribus unum" on it - which is the national motto of the United States; translated from Latin, it means "From many, one" or "Out of many, one." However in this game it says "E pluribus Nukem", which, roughly translated, means "From many, Duke."
  • Go to the witness stand in the courtroom and Duke will say "So help me Duke", as opposed to "So help me God".
  • In the interrogation room, there is a bloody glove on the table. This is likely a reference to the famous glove from the O.J. Simpson trial.

Trivia Edit

  • Because he left 3D Realms before the publication of the Atomic Edition, Richard "Levelord" Gray was not initially credited for his work on this level. Instead, the level was initially credited to Randy Pitchford. This was corrected after Gray publicly complained that the only difference between Gray's version of the level and Pitchford's version was that Pitchford, who Gray referred to as a "rancid bastard," had replaced a room full of hanging monks with a room full of hanging jurors.
