This is very easy to do on the first level of Hell On Earth, Entryway.

Bear in mind that lower difficulties mean less enemies but even on Ultra Violence there aren't too many and none of them (apart from the few in a secret area) are easy to miss.

Items are also in very short supply on this level. You may think that you have to pick up every single thing to get this but actually all you need for 100% is all the armour and health bonuses so there's no need to worry if you have full health or ammo and can't pick up every stimpack or clip. You will find an armour bonus in the corner to the right of the main hallway entrance in the first room. There are 8 health bonuses in small room halfway down the main hallway, it would be virtually impossible to miss them.

Now for the secrets, and the reason I imagine 95% of you are reading this guide. On Entryway there are only 5 secrets and they are all straightforward to find.

1: Partway down the main hallway there is a room with a traditional Doom door. Go in here and kill the imps (if you're playing on one of the higher difficulties) and the zombie soldiers on the raised platforms. If you face the platforms with the door to your back you will see a switch on the inside of the front right platform and one on the inside of the back left platform. Press the one on the front right platform and a section of the wall in the back corner of the room will slide up revealing an alcove with two stimpacks and an armour vest, this is the secret area and your reward. If you press the other switch first the platforms all sink into the ground and as far as I know there's no way to raise them again. If this happens you need to start the level over.

2: After travelling all the way down the main hallway you will emerge into a large room. Over in the far corner of the room is an imp trapped behind some bars probably throwing fireballs at you. On higher difficulties a section of the wall not far to the right of this will slide up and two more imps come out but chances are by the time you've dealt with them the wall will have shut again. To get the secret you will need to open the wall and go into the small recess behind which contains a stimpack.

3. In the same room as the previous secret there is a switch on the far side of the room that lowers a platform elevator. Wait for the elevator to rise again and you can find another hidden alcove at the back of it. Quite often the enemies in this alcove (again depending on the difficulty) will open the door and start attacking you, otherwise just hit the wall right at the back of the elevator and it will open. Going into this alcove will register another secret.

4. In the secret 3 alcove there is a switch. Hit this and a section of the wall to the right of the secret 2 alcove will slide up. Go outside, deal with the enemies (difficulty depending) and you will see a shotgun and some ammo. The outside area counts as the secret, the shotgun is your reward.

5. If you stand at the edge of the elevator you will notice one of the square platforms on the floor quite close to you. Back up and run (using LT) off the elevator and try to land on the platform. If you make it you will hear the usual door opening sound. Go back down the main hallway and into the small area where the health bonuses were. A section of wall in this area has now opened revealing yet another secret room containing a rocket launcher.

After you kill all the enemies, collect all the items and go into every secret area you just need to finish the level and the achievement will pop after it tallies up the stats.
