  1. The teleporter in Secret #5 takes you to the ledge with shotgun guys and a soul sphere. (sector 69)
  2. Go to the northwest corner of the starting room to drop into a small room with ammo and a medikit. (sector 80)
  3. Open the door that you see at the start and go straight ahead, but turn right and press on the lit lion face. Then go east, then south to the next door; there should be another opening next to the door. Open the door here for a megaarmor. (sector 139)
  4. West of the yellow key pillar, drop into the lava and head around the marble pillar for a lion switch. Pressing it lowers the pillar, but to get it, you have to go back up using the path outlined by armor and health bonuses. The pillar contains the BFG9000. (sector 155)
  5. Go southwest from the starting point and open the door, then head into the lava at the southwest corner here. Follow this path up to some health bonuses, medikits, rockets, a computer area map, and a teleporter. (sector 190)
  6. On the base of the curved staircase at the northeast end of the map, press on the marble lion face to reveal a box of shotgun shells. (sector 203)
