Other points of interest[edit]


  1. To the east of the start is a fake fire curtain (similar to the secret in E2M4) containing a switch which raises the floor of the console allowing access to the two secret rooms as before - however, on this occasions the rooms do not contain anything and are not flagged as secret. (sector 52)
  2. Near the start is a room with several consoles which must be pressed to progress further. From the top of the lift at the west of this room, it is possible to jump onto the southern ledge - doing so opens up a room with three energy cell packs. (sector 81)
  3. The exit is revealed by walking over a light square on the floor which also lowers three other lifts. Take the west lift up to reach a room with several zombiemen. There is a secret door in the west wall leading to a partial invisibility. (sector 272)
  4. In order to get the yellow key, it is necessary to press the northern switch then the western switch, then run across the yellow key to the eastern door (the floor will drop, leaving no escape if you do not reach the eastern door). Then after going through the eastern door then the next door, turn right, go through two doors, and turn left. The marble wall on the left is a secret door, leading to a switch. Now head along the path to the normal exit - there is now a teleporter near the switch that opens up the northern path, leading back to an earlier part of the level. Head back to the room with #2, and jump onto the northern ledge from the lift. Walk to the eastern end - you will teleport into a dark room containing a plasma rifle and a yellow door. Behind the latter is the secret exit. There are two secrets here. (sector 146)
  5. See #4. (sector 244)
