Other points of interest[edit]


  1. On going through the second door, backtrack and take the path to the south. The wall will be briefly lowered (it can be lowered repeatedly) allowing access to a water area with some monsters and two pillars with switches. Pressing the western switch opens up two rooms each containing two medikits and four boxes of shotgun shells. The western one also contains 2-9 imps. (sector 1)
  2. The eastern room (see #1) also contains 2-8 demons. (sector 146)
  3. Behind the third door is a room with three crushers. Walking through each one from the west opens up a door revealing a spectre (not on easy skill) and a stimpack. Each room counts as a separate secret. (sector 114)
  4. See #3. (sector 103)
  5. See #3. (sector 142)
  6. The eastern part of the ledge surrounding the yellow key can be accessed by lowering a lift at its southern end (next to the door). From here it is possible to jump to the western part of the ledge, which contains a medikit. (sector 94)
  7. The room behind the yellow door west of the yellow key room has a secret door to the north leading to a chaingun, a box of bullets, and a switch. (sector 107)
  8. After going through the northern yellow door, head to the north of this outdoor area - a pillar in the centre will lower, revealing a rocket launcher. (sector 205)
  9. After going through either of the red doors south of the yellow key room, shoot the eastern wall (marked bullet marks) - it opens, revealing eight health bonuses, and three rockets. (sector 18)
  10. The switch in #7 opens up a second teleporter (the western one) behind the 'Exit' door at the start. Taking this one leads to a soul sphere, a computer area map, a megaarmor, and a box of rockets, as well as a teleporter to the exit area. (sector 39)
