Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the end of the S-shaped hallway at the north end of the map is a soul sphere. Use the wall behind it to get a berserk pack. (sector 18)
  2. In the hall with the blue key, use either of the torches to lower a wall with a baron corpse seen through the north window. Run through the window and past the wall, continuing north until you drop to a secret area with an invulnerability. (sector 28)
  3. Reach the yellow key for the doors with cacodemons to open as well as a bridge to the exit to rise up. Go on the bridge and jump to the southwest or southeast to reach the area behind the doors, which hold imps, a box of rockets, a box of shotgun shells, and an energy cell pack. (sector 124)
