Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the start, head up the eastern stairs, then continue along the corridor until you reach a lift. Press the southern wall of the lift to lower the floor, ride the lift back up then back down again - a secret area is now accessible leading to 0-4 shotgun guys, an imp, four clips, two boxes of shotgun shells, a shotgun, and three teleporters leading to various parts of the level. There are two secrets here. (sector 68)
  2. See #1. (sector 67)
  3. The switch that lowers the exit platform also lowers a soul sphere in the outdoor area. This is accessible via a path leading north-west from the octagonal room in the south-east. Approaching it from this direction opens up an area in the south-east of the outdoor area containing a medikit, a box of shotgun shells, a box of bullets, a cacodemon (not on easy skill), 0-3 imps, and three shotgun guys (two on easy skill). (sector 193)
