Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Just west of the blue key is a switch which lowers the section of floor, revealing a room with a rocket launcher. (sector 99)
  2. The door that is opened by walking onto the lowered section of wall in the dark area with the computer map and soul sphere counts as a secret and is impossible to miss. (sector 246)
  3. Just before the path that leads diagonally across the nukage, there is a secret door to the east (marked with a misaligned texture) leading to a plasma rifle and an energy cell pack. (sector 248)
  4. From the north-western end of the path leading diagonally across the nukage it is possible to jump onto the western ledge (alternatively, walking onto the dry section in the nukage lowers part of the ledge). At the south of this ledge is a secret door leading to a room with a baron of Hell, two shotgun guys (one on easy skill), and two medikits. There is also a teleporter here leading to just south of #3. (sector 257)

Secret exit: Jump into the north-eastern part of the nukage in the south-west and enter the teleporter from its eastern side. You will be taken to a room with the secret exit switch.
