DM-Codex (whose full name is Codex of Wisdom) is a map appearing in Unreal Tournament .



Map description Edit

A maze to stroll around, this map features some goodies like the Body Armor, Shield Belt, Invisibility core, and of course, a Sniper Rifle to put all the defenses and their bearers' heads to waste.

An easter egg with a picture of Cliff Bleszinski, the level's designer, is hidden in the level. In order to get to it, you must jump from the wood bridge to the non-connected hallway, and shoot the middle light a few times. Then, go down and to the lower wood bridge. A new room has been revealed. Be aware, though, as this room extracts 5 health points per second.

Walkthrough Edit

PC (Retail/GOTY) Edit

"The Codex of Wisdom was to be a fantastic resource for knowledge seeking beings all across the galaxy. It was to be the last place in known space where one could access rare books in their original printed form. However, when the construction crew accidentally tapped into a magma flow, the project was aborted and sold to Liandri at a bargain price for combat purposes."

Tips and tricks Edit

  • Jump from the Pulse Gun/Armor area or fall from the Rocket Launcher corner to a ledge holding three Vials.
  • In the Sniper Rifle area, shoot the wooden wall between the stairs and the wall to get the Invisibility.
  • The area near the body armor (positioned just up a long wooden ramp) is a good sniping spot, as it looks down upon two spawn spots (health is also nearby). The surrounding walls, however, make the sniper susceptible to explosive weapons fire.[1]
  • The rocket launcher is located one of the level's high points. From up above you can spot the walkway below where players are sure to travel. Camp up here and fire the rocket down below (though expect to get some grunts and groans from seasoned players).[1]

Trivia Edit

  • The text in the secret room below is a reference to the band The Offspring and the song of the same name.

Easter Egg Edit

  • Jump from the wood bridge to the non-connected hallway, and shoot any of the four lamps of the area, five times. It doesn't matter the order or combination. Then, descend to the lower wood bridge. A new room with a picture of Cliff Bleszinski has been revealed. Be aware, though, this room extracts 5 health points for second.
