Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Look north from the start and shoot at the wall behind the demon enclosure. It will lower, revealing a chainsaw. (sector 792)
  2. In the building with the yellow switch and the chaingun, take the steps towards the chaingun and use the skull switch on the south end. Head south from there and get onto a lift leading up to a backpack. (sector 655)
  3. Jump to the structure where the yellow key is and before flipping the switch. Look east and shoot at the button, then flip the switch. Enter the east compartment and into the corridor which has health bonuses. At the end, you will be on a ledge with shotgun shells and an energy cell pack. (sector 755)
  4. From the ledge at the end of Secret #3, jump south and head to the end to get a computer area map. (sector 761)
  5. After getting the red key, return to the teleporter you came from and take the south teleporter next. Turn around and jump west to get a BFG9000. (sector 486)
