  1. After getting the yellow key, backtrack from where it is to the four-way intersection, then head back south and around. The yellow door will be straight ahead. Head north from there, then west to the next door. Instead of opening it, open the wall with the gargoyle face on it to reach a huge pit. Walk around the side of the pit until you reach the big door to the southwest. Open it to find a mancubus and a teleporter. The teleporter takes you to a fenced-in area with boxes of shotgun shells and a megasphere. (sector 471)
