Lazarus Labs is the ninth level of the new Doom reboot. There are nine secrets, four Elite Guards, one Field Drone, one Argent Cell, and two Rune Trials located in this level. The Cyberdemon is encountered at the end of the level as a boss monster, and must be defeated twice to continue.
The Lazarus Labs is a sub-division of the Advanced Research Complex, and is also accessible at the highest clearance levels. Located deep underground to prevent infiltration (or exfiltration), the Lazarus Labs are home to the longest-serving and most dedicated UAC staff. Information regarding the Lazarus Project is hard to come by as its members are highly secretive and well disciplined. What is known is that any cross-dimensional anomalies, entities, or artifacts are immediately sent to the Lazarus Labs for research, and are never seen again. However, promotion to the Lazarus Project is seen as a badge of honor among the UAC staff - despite not knowing exactly what their work will entail.
An Important Message
Fellow disciple, this message has been sent to you in recognition of your service to the Lazarus Project. I am Olivia Pierce. You have been granted the highest level of clearance we allow in the Lazarus Project, and as such you are expected to partake in all rituals, sacrifices and vivisection programs (both demon and human) as requested - whether as a practitioner of the dark arts or a patient of a cleansing. As we work tirelessly to open the gates to Hell, remember our mantra: "The science will cleanse us".
Our recent expedition to the Great Steppe resulted in the retrieval of new tablets which will help us further decode the Helix Stone. I must again reiterate the importance of fully decoding this stone. The scriptures tell us that it holds the key to both realizing our future and destroying us - so we must know it before the enemy. The enemy will come and we must be ready. While we are decoding the latest artifacts and relics, there will be no rest, no leave and no sleep. We must succeed. Our lives mean nothing. Opening the gates is everything.
- Variety is the Spice of Death II - Perform 5 different glory kills on Possessed Soldiers.
- Thread the Needle - Kill 10 demons with a single shot.
- Time Well Spent - Play a game of Demon Destruction.
- This level is split into two parts, possibly to put less stress on the hardware of console versions.
- If using the Saving Throw rune, if it's already been activated, the rune will reset after the cutscene that triggers with the Helix Stone.
