Level 402 is the 403rd Level of the Backrooms.


Level 402 is the same as Level 11 in size and structure but gives a more industrial vibe to it. It replicates a real life city named Sheffield. It consists of factories, corner shops, fast food restaurants and other buildings that quite familiar to a wanderer. Unlike Level 11, this level is infested with entities: Smilers, Skin-stealers, Hounds, Skin-givers. Others have reported Bone Thieves and Death Moths but these two entities are quite rare to encounter. The buildings in Level 402 have mysterious properties to them. When not looked at, they move in random directions. Level 402 is not infinite, it's only around 123kmĀ² in size, which is how big Sheffield is in real life. There are plenty of water features on this level that contain Almond Water, however it is best advised not to consume this Almond Water as it contains toxic chemicals that can potentially harm or even kill you.

  • Managing to burst one of the pipes in Level 2 will have a 25% chance of you teleporting here. Do not attempt this.
  • Saying the word "Steel" will have a 0.001% chance of teleporting you here. Some say it's not worth it as this is a dangerous level.
