Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Climb the steps at the start and look south. To the sides of the starting point, you will see two blue torches. Shoot at the torch on the right side, the one with the bloody skulls behind it, to open a door nearby. A few bonuses are here along with a switch. The switch lowers a lift leading to a green armor and a berserk pack. (sector 84)
  2. Stepping on the red key platform causes a lift to lower. To reach it, run from the red key platform south, and at the fork turn right and there should be an open room with a switch. Quickly enter this room and use the lion switch here. Now go back to the red caverns south of the area where you pressed the switch and find an opening in one of the rocks that contains another switch. After using this switch, go back to the red key room to find an opening in the southeast closet, where the switch here leads down a path of health and armor bonuses to a teleporter. You will teleport near the center of the map, where you can collect a soul sphere, but look out for the monsters when you do. (sector 112)
  3. Past the yellow key and to the northwest, approach the switch at the far end of the room to reveal some monsters. Go back and into the right closet. Where the pool of blood is, use the wall to the north to reveal a switch. Use this switch and head back to the previous hall. An opening is revealed here, where you can take a lift up to a plasma gun. (sector 262)
  4. In the red caverns towards the southeast part of the map, go to the red floored section and to where a blue torch is. From there, walk west to a brown-floored section and open the wall on the west side. You will find a medikit and two boxes of rockets. (sector 386)
  5. After grabbing the blue key, closets with barons of Hell open up. Go to the southwest closet and open the wall here to find two boxes of ammo and a box of rockets. (sector 570)
