I don't understand how triggering this works. Enemies don't push the player, I've never once been pushed by a monster in Doom. Also even if you were pushed, how is it any different from walking into it yourself? Unless somehow the special actions are tied to player caused movement and not environmentally caused movement? I need an explanation on this.

This is what John Romero said on Twitter about the secret.

 

I've never been pushed by an enemy either.

Is Romero's explanation right? Based on the wiki article it suggests that the secret sector is a sector next to the teleporter, not the teleporter itself.

Frankly, I think Romero's talking out of his ass on this one. Taking credit for the design of the Doom cover also seemed a bit spurious -- considering how much of an open book he is about games he's worked on, why hadn't anyone heard about this before?

Doom is like an onion with many layers! So much to discover, even after all these years.

I think Romero mistaken what sector was actually tagged as a secret and what was needed to be done in order to score it. I can't say I really believe the out of nowhere "super secret" story of his. Also yeah, it is near the teleporter.

Who's to say he did the secret like this intentionally?

I checked this and the Speed Demos forums and seems like no one posted this

Like the news channel on TV telling you that your backyard is on fire...

Almost seems too convenient for Romero to take credit for it? lol, what a weird one.

It's kinda ridiculous and embarrassing how much coverage this got compared to much greater things the community has done.

Enemies can push you by hitting with their attacks, but if shoved on to a teleporter by them you will still be transported :/

To the people wh are saying that there's no point in playing Doom 2. Think about this. What if, now here me out on this, what if somebody were to make a wad with more secrets than Doom 2 and one nearly impossible secret. I know it sounds crazy but just think about it/

I treat Romero's response as tongue-in-cheek.  Don't really believe he planned this back in 1994 but is just having fun acting as if was his diabolical plot for entertainment.

I just wish the rest of doomworld had viral marketing this good for the times it produces amazing things >:) rushed magazine editors see more immediate value in "This level is very large" or "man stands in secret sector" than "Incredible thirty-two level set with new music is launched"

 

no disrespect to Zeromaster, a great runner

Indeed. It's a minor curiosity being mistaken for something momentous. For this to be getting millions of views while ZM's 30uv and 30nm are only in the thousands is rather sad.
