Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go all the way to the northeastern part of the first outdoor area to find a radiation suit. (sector 167)
  2. The platform where the plasma gun is has an arrow pointing south. Instead of going that direction, jump to the teleporter north of it. The red room you emerge in has a megaarmor and some lost souls. (sector 171)
  3. At the large outdoor area at the southern part of the map, go into the blood river to lower into a large cave. Go to the far right side of this cave where a baron of Hell is and press on a misaligned wall. The wall opens revealing a soul sphere and a box of rockets. (sector 307)
