Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the first wooden trap room, if you go around the cages to the backside, you can open the metal wall to access the stimpacks in each cage. Both cages count as separate secrets, and the cage on the right side holds a box of shotgun shells as well. (sector 40)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 43)
  3. In the big room at the center of the map, there is a lion switch at the backside of a column on the northern side of the room. Press it to open up a compartment to the left that counts as two secrets. (sector 113)
  4. See Secret #3. (sector 115)
  5. Inside the compartment where Secrets #3 and #4 are located are some monsters, but if you press on the wall in the northwest corner, you will reveal more secret passageways. (sector 116)
  6. See Secret #5. (sector 117)
  7. Open the door in Secrets #5 and #6 to reach a large secret room where you can get up to four secrets in the room. (sector 118)
  8. See Secret #7. (sector 227)
  9. See Secret #7. (sector 228)
  10. See Secret #7. This is the room which contains health bonuses at the end of the room. (sector 192)
  11. The other door inside the big secret room leads to a corridor that ends in barrels, a chaingun, and boxes of shotgun shells. There are four secrets to find in this corridor. (sector 120)
  12. See Secret #11. (sector 191)
  13. See Secret #11. (sector 190)
  14. See Secret #11. (sector 119)
  15. When you get to the end of the corridor mentioned in Secret #11, return to the big secret room (which is Secret #7) and the left side will have opened up a bit. Aside from the monsters, there is a stimpack and a box of shotgun shells in this room. (sector 193)
  16. See Secret #15. (sector 48)
  17. Open the red door and run straight south and into the nukage. Be sure to pick up the nearby radiation suit, and go across the nukage until you find a teleporter which will take you to the secret. A stimpack and a box of shotgun shells are inside this small room, and there will also be a shotgun guy on Hurt Me Plenty or higher. Take note that if you access the blue key region before jumping into the nukage, the teleporter and the secret will be permanently closed off. (sector 109)
  18. In the big room with sunlight shining through the sky, press the switch on the west side of the block to open a room full of monsters on the east side of the room. (sector 152)
  19. In the big room with the sunlight shining through the sky, approaching the center of the room causes a block to show up right there with four switches on the block. Press on the switch on the north side of the block to raise some steps to the upper floor and go to the end of the corridor to get three secrets. (sector 181)
  20. See Secret #19. (sector 150)
  21. See Secret #19. (sector 184)
  22. See Secret #19. This is the sector with the teleporter, and to reach it, after getting the other three secrets (#19, #20, and #21), backtrack and look west to find one of the switches is accessible. Flip it, and the teleporter should be available. Note that you cannot actually trigger this secret sector. (sector 182)
  23. After taking the teleporter mentioned in Secret #22, grab the chainsaw in the center of the room for the western wall to open. This sector containing two demons counts as a secret. (sector 213)


Because Secret #22 is not accessible without the no-clipping cheat, the maximum number of secrets obtainable is 95%.
