Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southwestern room, fall into the lava river and head northward until you find a megaarmor. (sector 13)
  2. East of the northwestern building and southeast of the northernmost building is an opening of the rocks accessible from the lava. Go in here to obtain a backpack. (sector 39)
  3. Enter the northwestern building and take a right into the room with the caged cacodemon. Drop into the blood behind the cage and pick up a computer area map. (sector 80)
  4. In the area that has a bridge over lava in the southern part of the map, head to the eastern part of the bridge to open an alcove, if it has not been opened already. Inside this alcove, one of the walls does not have green stains on it. Open it for a passage of health bonuses, and open the next door to retrieve a plasma gun. (sector 198)
  5. After opening the blue door, head for the southeastern-most door here. Quickly run through this door into the next room with caged enemies and a chainsaw. You will notice that the northeastern cage has lowered, so quickly run to it before it rises and a passage will open allowing you to get a soul sphere. (sector 222)
  6. Go behind the northwestern building in the main area on the left side, and you will find a megaarmor. (sector 244)
