Duke Nukem Wiki

The commercial version of Duke Nukem 3D contains several pieces of data that are unused in the game, such as sprites and bits of code.

Alien Queen Sentry[]

Main Article: Alien Queen Sentry

There is unused data in the Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition game files for an enemy that would have bore the same relationship to the Alien Queen that the Battlelord Sentry bears to the Battlelord. In Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour, the enemy's code was updated but still does not appear anywhere in the game. This makes it the only enemy to have been twice created and scrapped in the game's development history.

Scorpion Tank[]

Main Article: Scorpion Tank

D3d 1872

The game contains unused sprites of an enemy resembling the Pig Cop Tank but shaped like a scorpion. The enemy has been dubbed the "Scorpion Tank" by fans.

Enemy top views[]

There are a few sprites that show several early enemies as seen from above. These presumably would have been displayed in the Map View, but the idea was scrapped.
