Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head west from the start and take the teleporter to get a chaingun and a box of ammo. (sector 175)
  2. Take the teleporter back and continue on the path west. Open the door and press on the lion face to find health bonuses and a megaarmor. (sector 181)
  3. After the outside area with crushers, you will find a room with five switches. Flip the rightmost switch and return to the area with crushers. The largest one at the west end now has its floor raised. Carefully pick up the health bonuses and partial invisibility. (sector 74)
  4. In the marble room with four doors, take the southeast door and go across the gap to get an energy cell pack and armor bonuses. A BFG9000 is in the pit below. (sector 69)
  5. Leave Secret #4 and take the south door. Open the west wall to find boxes of rockets, a medikit and armor bonuses. (sector 104)
  6. In the blue key chamber, a switch is at the west side. Use it, then head back to the large hallways. Right next to the door you came out of is a corridor to the left with armor bonuses, going down to a teleporter. (sector 6)
  7. Take the teleporter in Secret #6 to get to the blood area at the south end. Head to the westernmost side and use the wall with the satyr face to find the alternate path to the teleporter out of here. This side will take you to a computer area map. (sector 9)
