Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Just north of the chaingun is a tucked-away switch. Flip it and quickly run back up the steps to the room southeast of the chaingun, then on the lift to the east. Follow the trail of rockets and armor bonuses to reach a soul sphere and a switch raising one of the platforms to Secret #7. (sector 41)
  2. Get on the platform with red bars, then head into the left hallway and take the first right. Head up the steps but get on the ledge to the right instead of continuing. At the south end is a tucked-in switch, which will open the door to the east. Enter this room to get boxes of rockets, an energy cell pack, and a switch to open the next secret. (sector 138)
  3. The switch in the previous secret opens a similar room to the northeast of the one you are in. Quickly enter that room before it closes for health bonuses, a megaarmor, and a switch that will raise one of the platforms to Secret #7. (sector 174)
  4. Approach the lava pit with the platforms that lead to Secret #7, then quickly run north into a large room. To the southwest, an open passage leads to a red door, an energy cell pack, a berserk pack, and armor bonuses. (sector 244)
  5. In Secret #4, enter the alcove with the armor bonuses, and note the two candles near the terminals. Press on the wall where the left candle is to open a teleporter to the south, which will take you to a secret room with an invulnerability and a switch that raises one of the platforms to Secret #7. (sector 121)
  6. In the large room mentioned in Secret #4, head east and head towards the stairs leading down. Look across from the top of the steps and shoot the switch in the distance. This will open the slimy wall near you containing armor bonuses, medikits, and a computer area map. (sector 221)
  7. Once you have flipped the switches in Secrets #1, #3, and #5, return to the lava pit and cross the platforms to reach the south end which counts as a secret. (sector 178)
  8. Head right/west from Secret #7, then north to the cave, then east to the ledge on the west side of the lava pit. If you look across the pit you will see another ledge on the east side. There is a metal column, with a switch tucked into the corner at the upper left/north. Shoot it, and then go back, south and west (either route), to the far room. The door in the southwest corner will be open, leading up to energy cells and a BFG9000. (sector 333)
