Exultia is where your collectibles hunting skills will be put to the test in DOOM Eternal. This level introduces the Demonic Infestation meter, Weapon Points, and the Dash feature. The map is your friend as you explore the ruined remains of Exultia, and spend the second half of the stage in Hell. You’ll have to track down Secret Encounters — difficult challenges that will rapidly drain your Extra Lives if you’re not careful. You’ll also find your first Slayer Gate.
Slayer Gates require a Slayer Key to open. They’re usually located somewhere nearby, and require deft platforming to access. These keys unlock extremely challenging combat arenas that always reward you with three Weapon Mod Points. That’s a pretty great prize if you can survive the onslaught. Below, you’ll find locations for the Slayer Key and all the other collectible goodies in Mission 2.

How Collectibles Work In DOOM Eternal:
There are many different types of collectibles in DOOM Eternal: Automaps, Runes, Praetorian Points, Weapon Mods, Albums, Cheat Codes, Toys, Sentinel Crystals and Sentinel Batteries. Every level features an Automap, but not every level will have albums, toys, cheat codes, or Slayer Keys.
Basically, there are a ton of different collectibles, and below I’ll list where to find them all — in order from the beginning of the level to the end. Levels in DOOM Eternal are much more linear, so as long as you follow along, getting every collectible is easy.
- NOTE: To make finding collectibles easier, select the “?” Praetorian Suit upgrade for 3 points — it will cause every collectible location to appear on your map.

Album – At Doom’s Gate (Doom): In Hell, drop down to the severed robot arm and punch the large crate. Aim for the side with the fist icon, then follow the underground path.

Slayer Gate: Found to the right, after completing the gauntlet of falling platforms.
Toy – Cacodemon: In the lava cavern where you’ll need to jump to each soft wall (and avoid electricity gates), there’s a lavafall at the top. Double jump to the optional ledge. It’s around the small corner.
