Description Edit

This level is an eerie nighttime cemetery. It is made up of several areas, which all are separated by tall, stone walls. Iron gates separate starting area from main area.

Some areas are littered by urns and coffins that can be broken for gold. Largest and most dominant building in the level is church, which is located at the far end of main area and is accessed after final checkpoint. Its interior is pretty spacious, allowing player to fight Black demon and other enemies with little difficulty, without risk of being cornered. Church walls are decorated with decaying fresques, round stained glass window depicting Christ is above the entrance. Two mutilated bodies are also hanged from the ceiling. Ambience noises include wolf howling, crow cawing and occasional screaming, which all form this levels frightful atmosphere.

Secret Location Description Video

Secret 1 Chapter 1 Level 1 - Cemetery - Secret 1 Secret with level's sole holy item. Located in the first area after the first checkpoint on the tomb's roof. It can be easily noticed, as it glows bright yellow and stands out of the dark surroundings. It can be reached by overturning the nearby lamppost and climbing it up. Video
Secret 2 Chapter 1 Level 1 - Cemetery - Secret 2 The second secret consists in a Mega Health concealed within a cracked wall of a little structure in one small sub-area of the cemetery, after the fourth checkpoint. To reach it, the player has to recover an explosive barrel from the previous collapsing structure sub-area and roll it to the aforementioned wall. Blowing up the barrel near the wall will allow the player to pick up the Mega Health and discover another secret area. Video
Secret 3 Chapter 1 Level 1 - Cemetery - Secret 3 The third secret is located behind the left wall in an area full of banshees, after the fifth checkpoint, and has 3 mega ammo packs. To reach them, the player again has to use explosive barrel, which is in a corner behind the tomb. Video
Secret 4 Chapter 1 Level 1 - Cemetery - Secret 4 The fourth secret is located in an area with foggy ground and with the largest tomb in the map, after checkpoint 6. It is a golden armor, which is simply discovered by walking into the small building after clearing the area from enemies. Video

Strategy Edit

As it is the first level of game, there should not be any difficulty completing this level. However, on higher difficulties it can be pretty easy to find yourself cornered by mass of enemies and hacked to death. Even more, tight spaces and graves often obstruct movement, which can take away large chunk of health if any enemy catches player while he/she is stuck. To avoid such situation, it is advisable not to rush and memorize the layout of area, as blind quick-jumping will often lead to gang of skeletons or tight spaces which are hard to escape from. Painkiller weapon is great in this level, as it can simply stop any charging enemies.

Trivia Edit

  • Many graves have polish writings, mainly because game was developed by polish video game developer studio People Can Fly (2013-2015 known as Epic Games Poland).
  • The old boss of the Cemetery in the early alpha of the game was Banshee_CemeteryBoss which is a bigger version of the Banshee with more health and it will never move nor attack the player, but she has been used later in the Haunted Valley level from Painkiller Overdose.
