3. Secrets - Incomplete
The third chapter in the series, and the first with a 3D perspective (the
Nukem and the sequel, Duke Nukem II, are side scrolling platform games).
"A babe, a stogie, and a bottle of Jack. That's what I need right now."
Duke mused on his recent defeat of the Rigelatins, his voice raspy even in
thoughts. After single-handedly saving Earth--again--he was ready for a long
period of lying the hell down.
"And no more freakin' aliens".
Just then, a white-hot plasmatic blast punched through the hull of his
Klaxons flared, warning lights flased, and static filled his monitors. He
flipped on his comm.
"Hey, anybody out there? I got a litlle probl..." Duke started.
"Mayday! Mayday!" the radio replied. "Los Angelos is under attack! There
aliens everywhere, and they've mutated the LAPD. Is anyone there? We need
help!--". The transmission went silent.
"Great," Duke grumbled as his coreening ship missed a skyscraper. "What's
problem with all these aliens attacking Earth anyway? How many alien races
have to get their asses kicked?"
Duke slammed his fist into the waiting eject button.
"I guess one more."
(Taken from the game manual, for the most part)
There are several weapons Duke Nukem can have in his arsenal. Each of these
be recharged with ammo found scattered around the levels. Each weapon has its
own type of
ammo. For example, if you find a pistol ammo pack, you cannot use it with the
Duke's "Mighty Foot" -
You can use this to kick your enemies. You can never run out of ammo for
but if you've only got your foot left, you are in big trouble. This can also
used by pressing the tilde key (~) when another weapon is selected.
This is a rapid fire pistol which does minimal damage. Requires several
to kill most enemies, and is not effective against boss creatures. This
will need reloading after 12 shots. The reload is automatic, but can take a
couple of seconds during which you can't fire. This weapon has an ammo limit
200. Ammo packs for this weapon found in the game have 12 rounds in them. If
you find a pistol in the game, it will already have 48 rounds in it.
This shotgun carries a far more powerful blast than the pistol, but has to
reload (reloading is automatic) after every shot. Reloading is done by pump
action, which is quicker than the pistol's reload. The shotgun can take down
all of the lower enemies with a single blast. This weapon has an ammo limit
50. Ammo packs for this weapon found in the game have 10 rounds in them. If
you find a shotgun in the game, it will already have 10 rounds in it. If you
get a shotgun from a Pig Cop, the ammo in it will depend on how many shots
Pig Cop has fired.
Chaingun Cannon -
This rapid fire weapon is a good weapon for dispersing several enemies at
as it has a powerful blast. Beware, though: this weapon fires very rapidly
uses lots of ammo! This weapon has an ammo limit of 200. Ammo packs for this
weapon found in the game will have 50 rounds in them. If you find a chaingun
cannon in the game, it will have 50 rounds already in it.
RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade) -
The rocket launched weapon is great for dealing with enemies from a distance.
When the grenade hits, it explodes with enough force to affect anything right
around it. This weapon can take out almost any enemy except a boss with a
single, direct shot. This weapon has an ammo limit of 50. Ammo packs for
weapon found in the game will have 5 rounds in them. If you find an RPG in
game, it will have 5 rounds already in it.
Pipe bombs are great for setting traps. When you use it, you will see Duke
toss the bomb out in front of you. You will then see your thumb-activated
detonator. To blow up the bomb, just press fire again. There is no maximum
range to the detonator: you can be completel on the other side of the level
still explode your bomb with it. You can use more than one pipe bomb at once.
After you throw the first one, press "6" on the top row of your keyboard.
can now throw another bomb. Holding down the fire button for a longer period
time will cause the pipe bomb to travel further. If you are kneeling when you
release the pipebomb, it will just go out in front of you and hardly travel
anywhere at all. You can carry a maximum of 50 pipe bombs. Ammo packs for
weapon found in the game will have 5 pipebombs.
This slick weapon captured from the aliens will shrink your enemies to pint-
sized for several seconds. During that time, Duke can stomp and squish the
shrunken foes by walking on top of them. Be careful when around mirrors!
weapon has an ammo limit of 50. Ammo packs for this weapon have 5 shots in
them, and a found shrinker comes loaded with 10 shots.
The Atomic Edition of Duke Nukem 3D has has an alternate Weapon 7. It's the
Expander weapon. It looks similar to the Shrinker, but to get it, you press "7"
It has a small microwave antenna on it. When used, it will cause a character go
larger until they go "Pop".
Straight out of the Pentagon's top secret labs comes this double barreled
of a weapon which lets loose swarms of miniature stinger missiles in the
direction of your enemies. All out mayhem, or shot controlled bursts - it's
up to you! This weapon has an ammo limit of 99. Ammo packs for this weapon
have 15 shots in them, and a found devastator will have 15 shots in it.
Laser Tripbomb -
Another strategic device which you place on flat-walled surfaces. After a
second delay, a bright red laser beam is emitted across to the opposite wall.
Anyone or anything crossing the beam sets off a powerful directional blast.
had better get out of the way when you set them! Perfect for setting devious
traps and barriers. This weapon comes in single units only, and you can carry
maximum of ten of them at any one time.
Streams of powerful molecular discharges ricochet through the environment as
this weapon chills its victim down to the point of death and ultimate
crystallization. Once an enemy is frozen, you'll have only a few seconds to
shatter him beyond the point of recovery, else thawing will ensue. This
has an ammo limit of 99. Ammo packs will have 25 shots in them, and a found
freezer comes loaded with 25 shots.
-REGULAR GAME ITEMS-
There are some other items that are not inventory items that Duke will encounter
game play. These items are used immediately when hit, and cannot be stored for
like inventory items can.
Small Medkit -
This item gives an instant boost of 10 percent health, but will not raise your
health past 100%.
Large Medkit -
This item gives an instant boost of 30 percent health, but will not raise your
health past 100%.
Healing Atom -
This item looks like a blue atom. It will give you an instant boost of 50%
health. This item will allow your health to go over 100%, but not past 200%.
This item will give you extra protection against attacks. It will cause you
take damage at a slower rate.
There are three types of keycards you can find in the game. These are red,
yellow, and blue. Each one opens a locked door with a lock of the same color.
There are several items that Duke can find and use to help him during the game.
normal items, these are kept until you select and use them.
A large white health pack. This carries a maximum of 100% of additional
When you are low on health, you can select this to bring your health back up

time of this item is limited, and once activated, it cannot be turned off.
it runs out, you will have to find another bottle of steroids in order to use
This looks like a small translucent image of Duke. Holoduke is an item meant
fool your opponents during game play. When activated, a duplicate of yourself
pops up wherever it is activated. This Holoduke does not fire or move: it
stands there. This is a very good decoy during. Game enemies will go after
Holoduke instead of you if it is closer to them than you are. Holoduke has a
limited lifespan, but can be turned on and off during this time. Once
is used up, you have to find another one to use it again.
This item is silver, and looks like a backpack. The jetpack will allow Duke
fly pretty much anywhere. It has a limited lifespan, but can be turned on and
off during use. Be warned: if you run out of jetpack fuel when you are very
high up in the air, Duke will fall to his death. Once activated, you control
jetpack by either pressing the Jump key to go up, the Duck key to go down. To
use the etpack, you need to use whatever keys are defined for duck and jump to
go up and down.
Night Vision Goggles -
These are dark brown, and look like glasses. The Night Vision Goggles will let
you see in very dark areas by making the area you are in look brighter. They
have a limited lifespan, but can be turned on and off during this time.
Scuba Gear -
Looks like a backpack with two airtanks on it, and is an orange-yellow color.
It has a limited lifespan, and is automatically activated whenever you go
underwater. This protects Duke when he is submerged. If it runs out, or if
go underwater without this, Duke starts taking damage after he runs out of
breath. When you are swimming, you use the duck and jump keys to move up and
The Assault Trooper is the basic alien ground assault trooper sent by the
ruthless alien leaders to serve as the first offensive wave against Earth's
defenses. These guards are generally brownish in colour and wear green
They attack using a laser pistol, and they can attack from the air by using
jetpacks. Though moderately armored, some Troopers have exhibited high
resistance to injury. Take precautions that a fallen Trooper stays that way
fallen. When these characters are killed, they will sometimes drop pistol
ammunition that you can take and use.
These enemies are the same as the basic Trooper in all aspects, except that
wear red jackets instead of green ones. In addition to this, Assault Captains
have a wrist-mounted Phase Induced Teleporter Device (PITD) capable of
physically translocating its user to any destination within the device's
Used as a tactical assault instrument, the PITD enables the Assault Captain to
launch surprise attacks against his intended human targets at will. When
characters are killed, they will sometimes drop pistol ammunition that you can
take and use.
The Pig Cops are mutated alien operatives positioned to suppress residual
opposition and to police the new centers of alien power on Earth. Their
distinct warthog-like appearance and aggressiveness make them easy to spot,
difficult to overcome. They brandish a 10 guage shotgun and have a special
surprise ground level attack. These characters have extremely high

Also, protective body armour worn beneath their uniforms give them added
endurance. When killed, this character may drop either their shotgun or body
Recon Patrol Vehicle (RPV)
This sleek and deadly anti-gravity powered reconnaissance vehicle is operated
specially trained Pig Cops for the purpose of maintaining alien control in

pilot ejection mechanism that activates milliseconds before impact during a

Their method of attack is a powerful blast of mental energy released against

wage its attack. Their immense mental power is offset by a generally
unprotected, though tough and leathery, body.
With chaingun blazing, the armored Enforcer can make fast business of
dispatching any remaining human opposition. Powerful hind legs enable the
Enforcer to leap to many places where an unsuspecting Duke may be caught of
guard... so beware. The Enforcer may drop either chaingun ammo or his ripper
when he dies.
Mechanized death -- there's no better way to describe these airborne alien
watchdogs. By the time you hear their high pitched whine as they engage their
anti-grav propulsion units, it's probably too late. The drone will swiftly
collide with its target and explode with great force. Latest intel suggests
that the drones have been refitted with defensive evasion microchips.
The free-floating Assault Commander knows how to throw his weight around as he
engages his anti-grav spin-deck in your face. When at greater distances, he
fires deadly rockets from his rear port which dangles below his anti-grav
deck. Worse case of hemorrhoids ever seen this side of Delta Quadrant. The
Assault Commander may drop a supply of rockets when killed.
It emerges from its egg case with a simple nervous system and only one mission
in life -- to suck your brains out through your nose and leave you a lifeless
heap on the floor. The Protozoid Slimer is evasive as it stretches its
body from ceiling to floor, and then creeps up your pant leg for the coup de
gras. Get them before they get you.
Pig Cop Tank
These heavily armored riot tanks can take a lot of damage before they finally
explode. And when they do, expect to find an angered Pig Cop behind a
aiming right at your face.
These new aliens are evil in every sense of the word, taking nearly twice the
damage of a Pig Cop. So, don't expect a single rocket to do the trick. On
of that they move very fast, jump high, can claw you at close range, and have
the nasty ability to emit shrink rays.
The hulking Overlord commands the alien attack forces on Earth and makes the
very ground he strides upon tremble. His deafening roar splits the air as
rapid fire artillery and mortar rounds tear your body asunder. He has no
weaknesses... only relentless attacking will make Duke prevail.
Little is known about this alien biological weapon except that it is capable
unleashing powerful rocket attacks from it's surgically implanted dual
system on its massive back. It's behavior and weaknesses are completely
at this time.
The Cycloid Emperor
The ultimate leader of the alien attack force. No human has managed to get
close enough to report on it and live. Extreme caution is urged.
The leader of the alien race. It is rumored that she lives in the water and
produces the eggs that makes the alien race thrive. If she could be

Don't walk. Running allows you to cover more ground and makes you harder to
Use the kick -
Instead of wasting ammo to knock out fans and grates and open trash cans, use
Duke's quick kick.
Look Up -
Keep your eyes peeled for objects you can leap onto, especially after you've
cleared out a level and are searching for goodies. One thing you should make
a habit to look for is slanted areas on walls that you can jump onto.
Use Medikits Effectively -
If your health is only down to, say, 90 percent, don't grab a large Medkit
30 percent since the only thing that'll take your health over 100 is the
Atom. Instead, make a note of its location so you can come back when you
Listen up -
Use auditory clues whenever possible. If you hear grunting or roaring, it goes
without saying that a Pig Cop or a Trooper is nearby. If you hear Duke say,
"What a mess!" after you've shot a grenade into a window or detonated a pipe
bomb, you know for sure you killed something. The Assault Captains'
transporters make a distinct noise when they materialize, and don't forget to
listen for the sounds of secret doorways opening because they won't always be
directly in your line of vision.
Use the environment to your advantage -
You can greatly augment the destructive power of any weapon by using it on
certain objects. In the arcade above the theater in level 1, or example,
stand in the elevator and use the pistol to blow up some yellow oxygen tanks
kill all of the enemies in the room. Fire extinguishers blow up nicely, too.
Use the right weapon -
RPGs and pipe bombs are no doubt powerful weapons, but they don't do you a lot
of good when you're in close-quarters combat in rooms, tunnels, and other
spaces, because you'll end up blowing yourself up. If you know you're about to
enter close-quarters, switch over to the chaingun or shotgun. Save your RPG
pipe bombs for when you really need them.
Be nice to the girls! -
Yeah, you can tip 'em and hope they'll dance... some of 'em will even give you
little show... but no sense wasting them, because all it gets you is more
Night Vision -
Always remember to use your night vision goggles (if you have them) when you
enter a darkened area. Not only are the aliens really easy to see, but
sometimes you'll see helpful messages written on the tunnel walls.
A Bird's Eye View -
Once you've cleared out an area, use the jetpack and have a look around from a
better vantage point. You'll find ammo, armor, and even buttons that you
normally wouldn't see.
* Whenever you come across a pig cop with the freezer, freeze him, then let him
Freeze him again & another shotgun or used armor will pop out of him. Do this
until he won't give anymore, or your full of ammo.
* It is possible to fall from ANY height without a jetpack, without death, or
Go to any level with a fatal vertical drop or just use the jetpack to fly up to
the top of
the buildings. Before you drop, select the tripmines as your weapon. Turn off
and fall. Face the building, and plant a tripmine. For an instant, your downward
reverts to zero, and then you'll start accellerating again. When you're going
plant another. If you have just one tripmine, and you are able to plant it at
feet before you hit bottom, you'll land unharmed.
* You can drink from a water fountain, toilet, or fire hydrant to regain health.
* You can take a piss to gain 10 health.
* Duke can't hold his breath forever. Find scuba gear or come up for air
* When you are gnome-sized by shrinker attack, use the steroids to unshrink. But
kill yourself in areas that are too small to contain a normal-sized Duke, or
ceiling or sky (in case you were flying to escape your enemy).
* Use a military/police tactic called "slice the pie" when entering rooms that
you are not
sure of. Set up on one side of the door way and face the inside of the room
you (If you are to the right of the doorway look to the left side of the room on
side). Inch forward and continue looking to the opposite side until you see all
with out going into the room. Do the same from the other side. This provides
the maximum amount of cover when in unfamiliar
areas. Conversely the enemies are never smart enough to do this so hide behind
to doors and kill them with a shot gun blast when they come bouncing through
* To get rid of the laser trip bombs without having to duck under them or jump
shoot the wall it is on with an RPG.
