Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the south end, take the lift up, then get on the right ledge near the wall of faces. Head to the north end, face west, then shoot at the hole. Drop off and head west, then north behind armor bonuses and energy cells. This secret area contains a medikit, a megaarmor, and more energy cells. (sector 51)
  2. At the north end, approaching the eye switch lowers you into a trap room with demons and barons of Hell. Using the eye switch in the trap room there will reveal a teleporter back to the main area. Despite the floor lowering where the first eye switch is, you can still press the switch from under. Do so, then enter the teleporter and quickly go on the side platform with the soul sphere, rockets, and energy cells. (sector 107)
