Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the L-shaped bend of the nukage river near the first lift, open the wall directly opposite of the lift to find a radiation suit. (sector 241)
  2. Near the red key, there is a wall with an inverted cross. Shoot the inverted cross and a door opens up directly behind the red key (assuming you have not picked it up yet). In here is a soul sphere. Look out for the cacodemon behind the inverted cross upon picking it up. (sector 29)
  3. At the northern end of the large nukage river, you can spot a wall with bullet holes on it. Press it to open a compartment with a medikit and a switch which lowers a nearby bridge out of the river. (sector 112)
  4. Open the blue door and press the switch. This lowers the walls around the switch, but also a wall just outside the blue door. The hall here leads to some imps and a lion switch. The switch actually does not do anything, but approaching it triggers a crusher in the adjacent room, which kills the demons there if they have not been killed already. (sector 232)
  5. Cross the nukage river to the west and head down the stairs. To your left are some former humans and a small nukage canal. Press on the wall with nukage pouring out to receive a chaingun. (sector 268)


  • You can jump over the acid river in order not to lower the bridge (sector #58). Be careful, if you jump down in the left acid river (sector #56), you will be trapped.
