Asylum is the third level of Painkiller chapter 2 and one of the most memorable levels in game.
This level is set in small and dark Asylum at stormy night. The whole building is set somewhere in the woods and the area around the building is pretty spacious. In front of the Asylum is a main gate, pavement with benches and lamposts that leads into the building. Behind the building is a fountain and gazebo with small bridge above dried up stream. The gazebo also contains entrance to the underground tunnel that leads into the building. Interior of the building is very dim. There are maximum four floors. The first two are the "cleanest ones" as there's a reception, archives, library, kitchen and even a projection room - however the bathroom is rather filthy. The third floor is converted into patient rooms which are in terrible condition and full of beds, which most of them are turned upside down). The last floor is an attic full of pentagrams and omnious inscriptions on walls. There are also the stairs that lead to the tower.
This level is inhabited by monsters that resemble mental hospital patients. They include:
Tarot card Edit

There are 4 different scribbles on the Asylum's walls. All of them are located on the attic of the Asylum which is by the way the strangest and the most ominous room in whole building.
- The first scribble you will encounter is very clear and readable, spelling "NAAMAH" which is a demon in the Jewish mysticism. It also says that Naamah is one of the Archangel Samael's mate.
- The second one is found in the same room which is less clear and readable. By its appearance it may not be in English.
- The third one is found in the room where the Freak will rush through the door and is a blood written text accompanied with a Satanic Pentagram. After its appearance it is in another language.
- The last one is in the corner of the walls written with an ink like substance instead of blood. And is the most unclear and unreadable of them all. It is still not written in English.
Asylum building is based on The Danvers State Hospital - psychiatric hospital, where at the beginning of its existence the patients were kept in poor conditions and cruelly treated.
