Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the far north-east (past a lift to the east of the yellow door) is a switch which opens a door at the top of the lift leading to a plasma rifle and an energy cell pack (plus more ammo on multiplayer). The back wall of the plasma rifle's ledge is a secret door leading to two lost souls (one on easy skill) and a backpack. (sector 210)
  2. The yellow key area contains a secret door in the south-east (marked by two projections on the wall) leading to two boxes of rockets (one on easy skill), a demon (not on easy skill), a rocket launcher and a medikit. (sector 196)
  3. After going through the blue door, you will see a lift to the east. At the top of the lift is a secret door immediately ahead of you (marked by two projections on the wall) leading to a box of bullets and a computer area map. (sector 99)


A multiplayer-only box of rockets (Thing 403) behind the player starts has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level.
