This is a walkthrough of the map Biglight by Billy Boy for Duke3D. Take note that this walkthrough is meant as a guide to proceed further into the map at hand rather than mentioning the basics such as enemy or item locations. Also try to keep this as a reference and attempt to complete the map yourself.
Follow the trail down to short and take the right path. When you come to a yellow sign take a glance to the left at the green gate door. Take note of this location. Now head behind the opposite side of the yellow sign structure and dive underwater. Hit the switch here, this opens a small hatch to the left of you further away. Head inside this and surface up. Exit the cubicle.
Head forward towards the gate and grab the shotgun, turn back and notice the switch on the side of that last building. Press it and climb on top of the roof after the explosion using the structures around it. The vending machine proves useful. Head down the vent at the top, grab the pipebombs here and throw them through the gate to blow up the door. Exit the building.
Enter the next building to the left and hit the green gate switch in here. However we’re still not done yet. Head past the cublicle and into the crew quarters building. At the top bunk is a blue keycard so grab this. Then head back towards the green gate door. Enter inside here and head to the top. Take the first right into the tunnel. The switch here blows up the cublicle and spawns a pipebomb near this if you need it.
Go back and take the second right up and use the blue keycard. Once outside again take a right onto the platform and turn around until you see a “Do not operate” switch. Press this and jump onto the platform above you. Follow this path until the other platform lowers. Head down the ramp but don’t fall off. This activates yet another platform to lower so head back to that previous switch and hit it once again.
After doing this, head up the new platform which causes the lower one to raise giving you access to the next platform. Follow this path to the top and towards some doors. Enter this building. Jump on top of the doors, look towards the wall you came in at and jump. Notice that small gap, and jump into it. Look behind you and jump towards the roof of this building.
Head towards the edge with no fencing and look to the left. You should see a white platform so jump here. Then onto the red platform to hit the switch. Wait a short while and stand on the lift platform that lowered. Hit the switch again. Look to the left. Once at the top drop down on the other side to the right a bit. There should be a black switch down here so use it then head back up onto the area you dropped from. Stand on the black and yellow stripped floor and hit the switch here.
At the top, jump on top of the crane platform and walk towards its edge. Notice the vent in the side of the wall, and break inside it. Continue through here and head down the ramp with the glowing area, you should see a “biohazard” sign. Toss a pipebomb here and trigger it. Enter this new area. Follow the red corridor then jump into the left area. Shoot the canister and hit the switch in service access. From here jump onto the new platform. Look for a switch next to a broken pipe and press it. Then head into the service access elevator in the same area.
From here keep following the path up until you get to the meat disposal machine. Keep heading up the path and you should come up to a gate. Ignore this for how and follow the small edge past the lamp. Keep going around and you should notice a door. This is unlocked by the button code further round. The code is the second and forth. Enter the door we past a second ago. In here jump on the short ramp towards the window and hit the switch next to it. Exit via the window and through those gates we ignored.
In this area there are machines running, however as soon as you walk past the gates they stop. Take this cnance to do the next task. There are seven switches that need pushed. Two next to a hatch wall, one behind the taller box. Two around the left corner, and two on the right. This then blows up the hatch mentioned earlier. Head back out and walk past the gates once more slightly. Turn to see if the machines are running, if so then jump towards the opening and go through. Be careful here as you need to get into that hatch and getting crushed is simple.
When the small box is to the left, head to the right. As it comes back the tall one goes back. Step to the right and once the small box stops, jump on top of it. Now when the box moves towards the hatch, wait for the tall one to move and jump through. At the bottom here, bring the lift down then take it back up. You’re finally at the top areas of the level. Before you start exploring its best stick to a set order of doing things from here on. Take the left passage here onto some grass and take another left to the unfenced wall. Jump here and again take another left. There should be small platforms here and a rooftop. Head to that rooftop. On here on the wall is another “Do Not Operate” switch, press it anyway. Now head back and follow the orange path up.
You’ll come up to a low gate, Continue forward some more and you should see a “Keep Right” sign. Do as the sign says and keep following this path. You’ll find a small building here, head towards the sand wall and take a left. Drop down on the orange wood and glance on left wall. An arrow points to go to the left of the building with a small platform in sight. Follow it. Past the danger electricity box and down this entrance. Kill the pigcop and jump to where he was. Now press the switch next to the viewscreen.
Head back to the grassy area with the large guillotine. Once there follow the left wall and you see a gap inbetween the areas with a gate that has been opened. Follow this through. Upon coming into sight of a danger sign, take a left and through the door of the building here. Inside is an armory switch so press this and head back to the guillotine area. Head back through the gap to that lift we once came up. Now take the route past the “Hard Hat Area” sign.
Drop down and follow the path to the gap inbetween the brick wall. Take a right down this path. Follow it until you come up to an armory door, so enter this building. Once inside the left area is useless at the moment so go right. Once up the ramp take a left and head towards the dark wall. Underneath a yellow part of the texture is a switch. Push this and head down the ramp and continue into the next room. Find the lift and take it to the top. Don’t move from the lift yet, turn left and start jumping on the platforms you see to the top. Press the switch here next to the viewscreen and check to see what it opens.
Behind you should also be a window, this gives you access to the much higher levels so walk through it. You can’t get access to the top of the previous building yet so it’s best to leave it for now and continue the task of getting inside the middle building. The lighthouse itself. Take a left from where you dropped and follow it to the gates on the left. Hit the switch to give yourself quicker access here. From now on this area is going to be refered to as UPPER SECTION, while the area below will be refered to as LOWER SECTION. Keep note of these as they’ll be used from now on.
From the gate, lightly toss a pipebomb onto the wooden stairs and blow it up. Shrapnel should spawn about which opens up some new area. Head down here to save time later on getting access to the armory roof. Take a right until you see some room with karaoke taking place. Toss a pipebomb at the gate and blow it up. Head inside and press the machine next to the microphone. The curtains should open up so press the switch inside here. Head back and down the dark tunnel to a yellow sign. This door is now open so head in, jump to the top part using this corpse wall platform. Becareful not to fall out. Pull the switch and the guillotine should drop down and explosion take place. Exit out the window and head back to UPPER SECTION.
From the gates, follow the path towards the left until you come up to a green building. Ignore the barracks to the right. Drop down and contine forward as you were doing. At the end you should see an Emeperor Cycloid so duck back and stick to the back wall. Look left and you should see a shopping cart. Head there, break it and press the switch 4 times. Take your time so each of the cannon’s bombs explode on the monster until dead. This saves yourself ammo and annoyance later. Continue around the building to a sign with arrows pointing to enter. Do just that.
Inside here, clear the way of enemies and grab items as you do so. Do the same for the next floor via elevator and remember to take note of the forcefield with the sign, “Roof Access” Exit the building. Head back to the UPPER SECTION gate and take the same route. However, stop as you get to the first alienated wall to the right. Look left and jump onto the side of that building, then onto the higher section to the right of this.

It’s a bit of time until you get to the top floor, once in you should notice some people. On the left wall next to the window is a button combination. The code is, the second and forth buttons. Head back down the elevator and follow the converyer belt once again. However stop when you come to some grates. Jump on top of them. Then drop on the other side.
