Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the four-way intersection in the center of the map, take the east door, and at the next intersection, approach the pentagram at the south wall for it to lower. Head down the steps and open the east wall at the midway point to reach an outside area with cacodemons and a megaarmor. (sector 189)
  2. Go back to the first intersection, but this time take the western door. Like the last time, go south from the second intersection. On the ledge to the left of the starting point, go behind the chaingun and shoot the lion switch to find a BFG9000 and an energy cell pack. (sector 246)
  3. Now take the north door from the previously mentioned intersection. After going through the door, press the gargoyle switch to your right to open a wall containing a computer area map, a shotgun, and a medikit. (sector 300)
