Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the damaging slime at the northeast end of the map below the blue key, use the lion switch at the east end, then get on the nearby lift to the south and open the wall to find a rocket launcher, a radiation suit, and stimpacks. (sector 346)
  2. When you teleport to the blue key, turn around and go through the east wall. Use the switch in this room, then return to the starting point. Head west and enter the open teleporter. A chainsaw is in this secret area. (sector 487)
  3. Open the blue door and drop down a floor to find a megasphere (soul sphere on Ultra-Violence or higher). Open the wall to the south to find a computer area map. The passage here leads to a chaingun and a backpack. (sector 300)
  4. Head north from where the plasma gun is and use the metal ridge at the northwest end to find a stimpack. (sector 446)
