Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Part-way up the main lift are two grey UAC walls. Pressing either of them causes both to open, revealing several demons in two corridors. The eastern corridor leads to a megaarmor. (sector 2)
  2. The western corridor (see #1) leads to a soul sphere and (on multiplayer) a BFG9000. (sector 5)
  3. It is possible to walk north from the cyberdemon area into the surrounding blood, where there are two radiation shielding suits. On multiplayer there are also two soul spheres and two megaarmors (latter not on easy skill). Walking into the blood activates a crushing ceiling which assists in killing the cyberdemon. Both steps leading into the blood count as secrets, however they are too narrow to receive credit for. (sector 31)
  4. See #3. (sector 32)


Due to two secret sectors (#3 and #4 above) being too narrow, the maximum achievable secret percentage is 50%.

On medium skill there is a soul sphere to the north-west of the main lift, and in hard skill there is also another one north-east of the lift. Both of these are in sectors of zero height, and are thus unobtainable, making 100% items unachievable on these skills.
