Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northern end of the map where the barons are, you can press on the north wall to reveal a teleporter that takes you to a berserk pack as well as crushing the cacodemons you see in front of you. (sector 5)
  2. From where you teleport in Secret #3, use the green torch right next to you to lower the pillars around the secret area, as well as the wall ahead. The wall reveals the Metallica logo which is the secret, although if you are playing on Hurt Me Plenty or higher, you will also have to contend with a cyberdemon. The four lowered pillars in this room teleport to the center, which can be used to telefrag the cyberdemon if you choose to do that. (sector 24)
  3. From where you teleport at the bottom part of the map, take the right path at the fork and when you reach the dead end, look at the walls on the right side and spot one that is not in alignment with the rest. Use this wall as a door to reveal a teleporter, which takes you to a secret room with cacodemons, health bonuses, and two boxes of ammo. (sector 50)
  4. Go out into the open from the start and turn around to notice the water is lowering. Jump down and press on the southwest corner that does not have blood at the rim to reveal a passage leading to a medikit and armor. (sector 106)
  5. There is an opening to the north in the red area with the tall pillars. From the south, head onto two pillars going north, then jump to the opening. A wall will open up and you can collect a partial invisibility, an invulnerability, and a box of rockets from the cage. (sector 269)
