Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After taking the teleporter to the north-west of the level, there is a secret door to the east (marked with a different texture) leading to a passage containing imps plus health and armor. It eventually leads to a room with four imps (two on easy skill) and a soul sphere. On multiplayer there is also a rocket launcher (easy skill) or another soul sphere (medium and hard skills). Both the door to the passage and the western part of the passage itself count as separate secrets. (sector 285)
  2. See #1. (sector 286)
  3. At the end of the first north-south stretch of #2 is a secret door to the south leading to a lift down to an area with 3-8 imps and an armor. On multiplayer, easy skill only, there is also a plasma rifle. Both the door and the lift count as separate secrets. (sector 287)
  4. See #3. (sector 296)
  5. Towards the eastern end of the passage containing #2 is a secret door on the north wall (marked with a different texture) leading to a backpack. Both the door and the room itself count as separate secrets, however the former is too narrow for credit to be obtained. (sector 290)
  6. See #5. (sector 292)
  7. Head south from the teleporter near #1. You will pass an alcove containing two barons of Hell (one in easy skill). This alcove has a secret door in the north-west, leading to a light amplification visor (two on multiplayer, medium skill only). (sector 309)
  8. After getting #7, continue along the path until you reach a corner where a trap opens behind you containing some zombiemen. This room has a secret door to the east leading to an invulnerability. (sector 211)
  9. The red key room is opened by pressing a switch in an area behind a fake door. This area has a secret door in the south-east leading to four shotgun guys and a box of rockets (visible earlier in the level). Again, the door is too narrow for credit to be received. (sector 195)
  10. South of the box of rockets mentioned in #9 is a secret door leading to two shotgun guys, a computer area map, and an energy cell pack (two on easy and medium skills). (sector 263)
  11. After getting the red key, take the teleporter to a cage. This cage has a switch which opens up a door near the teleporter used earlier, revealing a soul sphere and a megaarmor. (sector 339)


As two secrets (see above) are too small, the maximum achievable secret percentage on this map is 81%.
