"Caleb journeys to destroy the evil heart that provides Tchernobog with the power of resurrection. Following a band of fleeing Cultists, Caleb travels to the dry wastelands in search of the Black Tower. Tchernobog has anticipated this move by reading the thoughts of his followers, and sends forth the bulk of his army to defend the heart. With the odds against him, Caleb will have to fight his way into the dark citadel where both the heart and an army of death await." — Opening cutscene

Armada (DWE2M1) is the first level of the second episode of the add-on Death Wish, considerably known as episode 8. It depicts the start of Caleb's journey to the Black Tower to continue huting for Tchernobog. Since this is the beginning of a new episode, the player starts with none of his weapons from the previous one, although there is a shotgun to start. It starts on a rowcart, floating towards a large vessels with cannons.

"Stay still while the cart is in motion then hop onto the vessel (which I will refer to as "ships") when the cart stops. This is Ship A. Go through the door to the right and clear the area. Go through the door straight across from the one you used to enter Ship A and wait for the trailing ship to arrive. When it does the gate will come down and Zombies will run out. If you are skilled you can bomb a few of them with TNT before the ship arrives. Once a few have died the main cabin will open up allowing you to get the Skull Key. Go back into Ship A and take the door on the left. Activate the cannon and return to the trailing ship. The ship that you fired on will have come close enough to enter. Grab the Eye Key from inside and go back to where you first hopped off your original cart. Walk across the chain connectors to the mini ship. Ignore the cannon and move to the rear of Ship B. You will see a switch that will lower the back wall. Press it and return to the mini ship. Rotate the cannon using your Eye Key FIRST, then fire the cannon to make a path into Ship B. You can not blow up the wall before activating the cannon. Clear the inside of Ship B. The door to exit Ship B will open when you get near it, and there are many Zombies waiting for a chance to get inside. Use explosives here to conserve ammo or draw them inside and dodge them. Move straight across the chains to the head of the caravan. Hop in the little cart and drive over to the giant Ship C. Starting from where you entered, go to the first door on the left. Head down the hallway and kill the Butcher in the bathroom for the Fire Key. Return. Starting from where you entered, go to the door on the right. Clear the navigation room and grab the Spider Key. Return. Starting from where you entered, go to the furthest door to the left. When you run down the walkway a Fanatic will come along on your right and start firing. Unload a Shotgun blast on him and move forward. Go through the door ahead and take out the baddies. As soon as you access the Spider Key locked panel the wall to the left will shoot up revealing several enemies. You will have to act fast to avoid the TNT being thrown. Exit through the rear door of Ship C and fire the giant cannon to end the mission."Bloatoid's Guide
