Level 2 is the 3rd Level in The Backrooms.


Level 2 resembles a massive series of thin hallways lined with pipes on the walls. The level is made out concrete and pipes are extremely abundant. The level is very dark and claustrophobic, so it can be dangerous for claustrophobes and nyctophobes. The pipes contain a mysterious black and viscous liquid (It turns out that it's an entity). This entity, called Vescosis, is very dangerous and can attack you aggressively, if anyone touches it.

The pipes on Level 2 vary in size to the point where it's almost impossible to go thorugh some hallways. Temperatures can go from 26°C to 58°C in significant areas.
Level 2 also has very disorganized fluorescent lights on the ceiling and walls. Some doors can be commonly found on Level 2.

Due to the wiring and piping of Level 2, the level's electricity can be disrupted and short circuit can happen. These short circuits only last for 10 minutes, although being highly dangerous, because a lot of entities can spawn.
Level 2 is presumed to have the length of 500 Mio. km2 and multiple wanderes rumored that, at the end of the hallways, there's a door that leads to another level. Multiple wanderers said that this expedition is unnecessary and highly dangerous to do. Thus it has never been proven, if there's an exit at all.


While common entities roam around Level 2 for instance Smiler, Hounds and Bursters, a level-excluxive entitiy lives in some pipes of Level 2, called Vescosis. Unlike Level 1, they spawn more frequently in the level, due to the short circuits events and the overall darkness of Level 2.
