Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the start head east then south at the intersection. After the next junction there is a secret door to the west leading to two boxes of bullets. (sector 233)
  2. Further down the corridor from #1 is a secret door to the east leading to a box of bullets (hard skill only), a box of shotgun shells, and two boxes of rockets (three on hard skill). (sector 231)
  3. From the start head east then south. There is a secret door to the east leading to a lava corridor containing five health bonuses and three armor bonuses. Note that it is necessary to step on the section of floor immediately under the door to receive credit for the secret. (sector 246)
  4. Part-way along the corridor accessed by #3 is a trigger line that opens up a door slightly further back, leading to two energy cell packs, a computer area map, and a plasma rifle. (sector 252)
  5. The yellow key room has a secret door behind some barrels to the north, leading to a spectre and a rocket launcher. (sector 170)
  6. Head west from the yellow key room and through the door to the north. There is a secret door on the north wall here (between the two easternmost barrels) leading to a backpack, a medikit, and three imps (two on easy skill). On multiplayer there is also a megaarmor. (sector 218)
  7. South of the yellow key room is a room with a cage containing imps. There is a switch here opening up three traps with cacodemons. The two eastern traps are linked by a secret corridor containing two medikits, a health bonus, an armor bonus, and two boxes of bullets. There are two secrets here. (sector 186)
  8. See #7. (sector 187)
  9. Go through the red door in the north of the level, then press the switch in the room. Head east out of this area, return to the start, then head east then north. A door will now be open, leading to 2-5 cacodemons, a medikit, a berserk, an energy cell, and two boxes of rockets. (sector 235)
