Secrets[edit]

  1. The path leading to the blue key counts as a secret and is impossible to miss unless you exploit the first bug below. (sector 286)
  2. The inner pentagon of the pentagram surrounding the red key has a secret door on each side (facing away from the centre). The one opposite the red key area contains a baron of Hell, eight health bonuses, two armor bonuses, a box of shotgun shells, and two stimpacks. (sector 63)
  3. The next side of the pentagon (see #2) leads to 8 shotgun shells, a box of bullets, and a baron of Hell (last two not on easy skill). (sector 74)
  4. The next side of the pentagon (see #2) leads to two rockets, a baron of Hell, and a soul sphere (last two only on hard skill). (sector 73)
  5. The next side of the pentagon (see #2) leads to two rockets, a baron of Hell, and a computer area map (last two only on hard skill).(sector 76)
  6. The next side of the pentagon (see #2) leads to the same items as #3. (sector 78)

Bugs[edit]

It is possible to press the exit switch without first pressing the switch behind the blue door to lower the switch.

Pressing the switch behind the blue door also lowers the bars to the outside area with the spiderdemon and barons of Hell. If you run out into the outside area after pressing the switch you will be trapped as there is no way to raise the bars.

It is impossible to achieve 100% items on hard skill, as there are two computer area maps and only one can be collected.
