Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Inside the lava room where the lava forms the shape of a skull on the map, the floor above will lower to your level. Go to the northeast corner of this room and fall into the lava, then press the satyr switch here to find a megaarmor and a box of ammo. (sector 44)
  2. At the big hall with the crushers and the rising and lowering blocks, grab a radiation suit from the southeast block and wait near the northeast block until it goes all the way down. Then run across the lava north, then east, then south to a platform with a chainsaw and another radiation suit. (sector 155)
  3. Inside the blue room with the damaging water, look to the southwest wall to spot a part of the wall that is indented a bit. Press on this wall to open it and reveal a BFG9000 and a soul sphere. There may be barons of Hell in this room as well, and the teleporter takes you to where the yellow key was. (sector 182)
  4. Inside the broken room where the red key is located, there are three more silver platforms that need to be lowered, which contain imps and some supplies. There is a switch in the southeast part of the lava here that will lower these three platforms. All three of these platforms count as one secret. (sector 187)
  5. If you venture into the lava on the west side of the map, quickly run across to the north to the island which contains the blue key and three rockets. (sector 193)
  6. If you go west from Secret #5 you will spot a red door in the lava. If you have the red key, open the red door for the normal exit of the map (due to the way this episode was constructed, this exit is actually a secret exit, while the actual secret exit is more of a normal exit). (sector 261)
