The Gauntlet is the fourth level of The Rift. As its name suggests, the level consists of a series of tests for the player - monster encounters and deadly traps. A part of the level includes a river of blood. If they survive, players will reach the portal that will take them to the final showdown with Armagon.

An interesting feature of this level is the hidden logo of Hipnotic Software within one of the secret areas.
