Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the first intersection, go right and use the gargoyle switch on the south wall to raise a bridge to the other side, where you will find a box of shotgun shells, health bonuses, and armor bonuses. (sector 27)
  2. Drop to the south from the previous secret and go through the damaged wall. Follow the passage to a medikit, ammo clips, and a switch. Flipping the switch lets you use a life to get up to a rocket launcher. (sector 35)
  3. Open the door west of the room just before the exit room, then head to the southeast side for a switch. Return to the previous room and the walls to the east will be open, revealing rockets. (sector 45)
