Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Entering the room three after the start room causes a wall to lower, revealing a wall that must be shot to open up the next door. This wall counts as a secret. (sector 273)
  2. After getting the blue key, return to the start - there is a blue door to the east, leading to a room with a Cyberdemon, many items, and a switch allowing quick access back to the blue key room. (sector 126)
  3. After going through the series of lowering walls, before going through the door ahead, head right to reach a yellow key, an armor, six BFG9000s, two energy cell packs, three backpacks, and several monsters. There are two secrets here. (sector 283)
  4. See #3. (sector 286)
  5. There is a door to the west of the exit room leading to a room with several items and ammo. The two blood trenches either side of the stairs each count as secret. (sector 246)
  6. See #5. (sector 247)
