LavaBox or LavaBox DM is the fourth level of DEATHMATCH Maps. This level is rather small and is therefore ideal for two players (1 vs 1), even those that are limited to a modem. The End Tunnel is on the opposite side of the map from the starting tunnel, it is only accessible by using a Moving Platform. A platform in front of the End Tunnel holds a Quad Damage, Ring of Shadows, and Thunderbolt. Though this means a player can get a position of power, it is a rather precarious path and therefore likely that a player attempting to get on the Moving Platform will be knocked off by opposing players. This level is intended for 4 players or less.

Though this level is intended to be Multiplayer only, the level was designed to hold Enemies. As Enemies do not exist in Deathmatch games, this means that the aforementioned Enemies only appear in the Single Player rendition of this level. As Enemies and a Single Player spawn point exist, this means the level is fully functional in Single Player even though it is intended for Multiplayer.

Quick Level Completion

  • Time your jump onto the Moving Platform straight ahead.
  • Wait for the Moving Platform to reach the platform on the far side of the room from where you started.
  • Go through the doorway, then proceed forward to exit the level.
