The Doom II Key FAQ

This file explains exactly how to obtain all the various colour keys (red, yellow and blue) that are to be found in Doom II (note that some levels don't have certain keys; hence, if you can't find a particular key on a level, maybe it's because that level hasn't got one? Check here to find out!).
