The Pits is the forth level in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. The level is located in Warp Room 1.


The Pits is a forest/woods style level, with many plants and animals around. There is barely any grass through, the player is simply striding through dirt. A feature in The Pits are the below ground Pit areas that the player needs to go down and kill the Rats, then a mushroom can boost you up to the main ground. A workaround is to jump then quickly spin; that way you can skip beating the rats. There is a Bonus Round in the level. The Pits contains the following enemies that a player will face:


Like in every level, the regular Clear Gem is present. To obtain this gem, a player must collect every box in the level. There are no other gems to obtain in The Pits.
