In Doom Eternal’s 10th mission, “Nekravol - Part 1,” there are 13 exploration items across this level’s areas: Pain’s Basin, The Mill, and the Passage of the Damned.

While some items like 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: three Toys, two Secret Encounters, one hidden Mastery Token, one Album, and one Cheat Code. 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.

Nekravol Toy locations


There are three toys hidden across “Nekravol - Part 1.”

Pain’s Basin // Toy 1: Baron of Hell

After you clear the first battle encounter, look for a high swing bar on one side of the arena. Along wall adjacent to it is a barely noticeable climbable wall in a long, thin strip.

Use the lower swing bar to swing across the higher one, and then grab the wall. Climb up, jump away from the wall, and then air dash back to make your way into a small room. Grab the 1UP, and then drop down to the room below to grab Toy 1: Baron of Hell.

The Mill // Toy 2: Gladiator

After you defeat Kalibas, you’ll head deeper into the Soul Factory. As you move through, you’ll reach a point where you must jump across a gap to enter a battle arena. Keep this gap in mind.

Once you’ve cleared the battle arena, you’ll have to jump off a ledge to continue moving forward. However, before you do, you look back toward where you came from and you’ll notice a passageway below the ledge you originally jumped from to get to the battle arena.

Jump and air dash down there to find a hidden tunnel. Walk past the hidden Secret Encounter there and continue moving forward until you find Toy 2: Gladiator.

Passage of the Damned // Toy 3: Doom Hunter

In the area after Samuel Hayden explains the soul harvesting process and you need to ride a moving cage upward to get further into the Soul Factory, you’ll come across an area where giant spikes fall from the ceiling.

On the wall to the right of the first spike is a barely noticeable breakable wall. Punch through to find a Mastery Token and Toy 3: Doom Hunter.

Nekravol hidden Secret Encounter locations


There are two hidden Secret Encounter locations in “Nekravol - Part 1”.

The Mill // Secret Encounter 1

Once you’ve taken care of Kalibas, you’ll move further into the Soul Factory. At a certain point, you will jump a gap to enter a battle arena. Remember this ledge that you jumped from.

After you’ve cleared the battle arena, you’ll have to exit the by jumping across a different gap in the previous area. However, if you look back toward the ledge you jumped off prior, you’ll notice a passageway underneath. Jump and air dash down there to find this hidden Secret Encounter.

Passage of the Damned // Secret Encounter 2

In the battle arena in the third section of the Soul Factory, you’ll notice a ledge to the northwest of the room. To access it, first get onto the moving cages where you see a glowing green skull.

Right before it reaches the top, jump off the cage to the right and grab the climbing wall. From there, jump over to the ledge, drop down, and activate the green skull switch. When you do, you’ll hear a sound but won’t see any changes to your immediate area.

Head out of the battle arena and back from where you came, beneath the two large spikes falling from the ceiling. Look for a previously gated area that’s now open. You can now activate this hidden Secret Encounter.

Nekravol Mastery Token locations


There are two Mastery Tokens hidden across “Nekravol - Part 1”, but only one of them hidden. The other is along the critical path.

Passage of the Damned // Mastery Token

In the area right after Samuel Hayden explains the soul harvesting process and you ride a moving cage upward, you’ll find an area with large spikes falling from the ceiling.

To the right of the tunnel with the spikes is a barely noticeable breakable wall below the first set of spikes. Punch through and find both Toy 2 and a Mastery Token.

Nekravol album location


There is one hidden album in “Nekravol - Part 1.”

Passage of the Damned // Album: KEEN - You’ve Got to Eat Your Vegetables!!

In the battle arena in the third section of the Soul Factory, you’ll see a series of moving cages to the right side of the room with a glowing green skull above them. Ride the cages up and, before you reach the top, jump to the climbing wall to the right.

Jump to the adjacent ledge, drop down, and activate the green skull switch. You’ll hear a noise, but won’t see any changes. Head out of the battle arena and back to where you came from — past the area with the falling spikes coming from the ceiling.

Look for a previously gated area that’s opened up, revealing access to a Secret Encounter. Further down that corridor is the hidden Album: KEEN - You’ve Got to Eat Your Vegetables!! waiting for you.

Nekravol Cheat Code location


There is one cheat code in “Nekravol - Part 1.”

Passage of the Damned // Cheat Code: Famine Mode

In the battle arena in the third section of the Soul Factory, you’ll find a second pair of falling spikes on the opposite side from the room’s entrance.

After clearing the enemies in that area, you’ll see two sets of cages moving upwardnear a furnace. If you drop down the pathway on the right, you’ll find a passageway that you can get into. It contains a room with the Cheat Code: Famine Mode.
