Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head east from the blue key room - there is a secret door on the east wall leading to a backpack. (sector 349)
  2. The north wall of #1 is a secret door leading to five health bonuses, four armor bonuses, and a megaarmor. (sector 350)
  3. Approaching the switch in the far south-west of the level raises a section of floor to the north-west of the maze near the start. This contains some health and armor bonuses, and leads to the ledges surrounding the path leading to the switch in the south-west. (sector 181)
  4. From the ledges (see #3) it is possible to jump across to an island in the middle of the path containing a switch. (sector 130)
  5. The switch in #4 opens up access to a teleporter in the south-east of the large maze. (sector 104)
  6. The teleporter in #5 leads to an area west of the start with two four-legged soldiers, 4 shotgun shells, and a soul sphere. There is also a secret door to the north-west leading to a switch. Press the grey wall to get out of this area. (sector 355)
  7. After pressing the switch in #6 and pressing the switch to the north of the teleport maze, head towards to the second room (from the west) in the middle row of the 5x5 grid. Take the teleporter to the west that is opened up by the switch in #6 - you will teleport to a room with a floating torso and a teleporter. The teleporter takes you to the ledge surrounding the switch in the south-west of the level. At the east end of this ledge is a lift leading to a cacodemon, a crossbow and a soul sphere (easy skill only), or a skeleton captain (medium and hard skills). (sector 353)


100% items is not achievable on this map as there is a health bonus (thing 598) stuck inside a wall in the maze.
