Level 6 is the 7th Level of the Backrooms.


Level 6 is an expansive complex of small, pitch black, relatively barren metal rooms similar in design to a typical commercial boiler room. Throughout the level, numerous metal pipes can be found that transport heated water originating from an unknown source. Audio distortions can frequently be experienced, ranging from the rushing water growing to an extreme intensity to vocalizations of a strangely familiar voice ringing throughout the piping.

An innate property of Level 6 is the rapid loss of sanity while exploring said level, resulting in the transformation into an insanity. Due to this, there is an abnormally large population of Insanities that roam Level 6. It is unknown what the direct cause of this latent effect is.

Hallucinations of a wide variety are also prevalent within this level, ranging from loved ones to the strange false exits of Level 6. These false exits are unique in that other wanderers will share this hallucination until properly disbelieved. Another hallucination of note is the Unknown Wanderer, an indistinct male figure of average height and weight that can be found throughout the level. When a wanderer attempts to interact with this hallucination, they will gradually fade into the darkness. Reports have been made of this hallucination being found on other levels, most predominantly on Level 0, after first being witnessed on Level 6 proper.

Mourning Event:

Occasionally a sourceless dim light can be found while exploring Level 6. This light is thought to be related to anomalous incidents dubbed "Mourning Events". These events appear to be caused by the transformation of a wanderer into an Insanity while within the level, as there have been no documented cases of a Mourning Event occuring outside of Level 6. It is unknown what the significance of these events are, but suggest a deeper connection between the level and Insanities.
