Quake1  

The Cistern is the fifth deathmatch level of Quake. This level is named for a room that is nearly submerged in Water being a control point of the map. Platforms surround the upper floor which allow for quick access around the level, plus a Teleporter system quickly links opposite sides of the map. The Rocket Launcher is located behind a Door that requires the player rush down a platform and press a Button before getting through the locked door. This map is rather unpopular due to the difficulty of getting the Rocket Launcher as another player could easily control the Door from the upper platforms. However, it does still manage to get more attention than DM1: Place of Two Deaths due to containing nearly all the Weapons in the game, lacking only the Double-Barrelled Shotgun.
