In Doom Eternal’s fourth mission, “Doom Hunter Base,” there are 16 exploration items across the map you’ll be exploring.

While some items, like modbots and codex entries, appear on the map automatically as you explore, a hidden or secret item won’t show up unless you happen to walk nearby. You’ll know you’ve passed by one of these collectibles when you see a white question mark on the map or a large, floating question mark in the game world.

In this guide, we’ll show you where to find all hidden items: two toys, one album, one cheat code, three hidden Praetor Suit Points, and one hidden Sentinel Battery. Below, you’ll find maps, locations, and explanations of how to reach every question mark and find each secret in this level of Doom Eternal.

Doom Hunter Base toy locations


There are two toys to find in Doom Hunter Base.

Cultist Base // Toy 01: Lost Soul

At the end of the hall in the area where you first meet the Carcass enemy, are a few moving platforms near molten metal. In the back of the room is a platform that moves up and down that you must climb up, as well as a platform that moves up and down the hallway.

When the first platform is at its highest, jump forward and air dash toward the small, circular hole in the machinery ahead. In there you’ll find Toy 01: Lost Soul.

Cultist Base // Toy 02: Hell Knight

Right before you face off against the Doom Hunter, you’ll pick up a codex entry about them. After that, turn around and face the passageway you just came from and look up.

Find a green switch that you can shoot. Hitting it reveals a secret passageway in the stairway you just came from. In there, you’ll find Toy 02: Hell Knight.

Cheat code location


There is one cheat code to find in Doom Hunter Base.

Cultist Base // Cheat Code: Silver Bullet Mode

Partway through the mission, you’ll come across a machine that removes a demon’s body from one of the level’s many floating caskets. Eventually, you’ll make your way to the top of the device.

Upon reaching the top, what you’re supposed to do is climb around the device from a nearby platform, and then jump across to keep moving forward. However, if you keep climbing up the platform, you’ll find the cheat code: Silver Bullet Mode. Dropping down into the hole at the top of the structure will also net you one of the level’s hidden Praetor Suit Points.

Doom Hunter Base album location


There is only one album in the Doom Hunter Base.

Cultist Base // Album: KEEN - Shadows Don’t Scare Commander Keen!!

Follow the path to get the Cheat Code above to the exact spot you where you find the secret. Once on top of that structure, turn until you see a grabbable wall near the corner of the wall beside you.

Jump over and turn back toward the cylindrical structure that’s located on the outside of the base. From there, jump and air dash over and follow the pathway around, down, and then back up until you reach the top of the structure. Drop into the machine to grab the album: KEEN - Shadows Don’t Scare Commander Keen.

Sentinel Battery locations


There are two Sentinel Batteries to find in the Doom Hunter Base. While one of them is along the critical path, one of them is hidden.

Doom Hunter Base // Hidden Sentinel Battery

After the first battle encounter, you’ll find a Sentinel Battery hidden behind a gate in the back end of the room, on the lowest level.

To access that room, find a breakable vent in the platform nearby. Breaking through reveals a hidden chamber. Walk around and jump up to grab the Sentinel Battery.

Doom Hunter base hidden Praetor Suit Points


While one of the Praetor Suit Points in the Doom Hunter Base is along the critical path, three are hidden. Here’s how to get them.

Doom Hunter Base // Hidden Praetor Suit Point 1

After the opening of the level, once the train stops, continue moving forward until you reach the Modbot. From there, turn around and you’ll see a swing bar moving up and down and a grabbable wall behind it. Time your jump right, and keep moving back toward the beginning of the level.

On the next platform, you’ll see the Praetor Suit Point above on a ledge on the right.

Doom Hunter Base // Hidden Praetor Suit Point 2

In the area right when you first see a demon’s body being removed from its casket, you’ll need to exit that area. Make your way to a climbable structure outside, which will lead you to the top of the structure containing the body.

To continue along the critical path, you need to jump from the structure to a ledge to keep moving forward. However, once you’re on top of the structure, not only can you grab the level’s hidden Cheat Code, but you can drop into a hole on top of the structure to a room below containing the secret Praetor Suit Point.

Doom Hunter Base // Hidden Praetor Suit Point 3

After you get the red access key card, you’ll make your way to a fork in the path with two gates blocked by lasers on each side. The critical path is to the right, and the hidden Praetor Suit Point is on the left.

You’ll see the Praetor Suit Point on a small ledge above some boxes. Just jump on the boxes to the left and up to the ledge to grab it.
