Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the central area, press on the northeast wall to the right of the cage to get partial invisibility. (sector 9)
  2. At the damaging blood pit at the east end of the map, head east, then north through the cave. Approach the supplies by going onto the brighter ground, then quickly run back to the blood pit and all the way southwest onto the rocks and into the open window before it rises. You will get an invulnerability. (sector 16)
  3. After raising the bridge to the exit door, approach the door for it to open. Instead of going for the exit, go back to the bridge and head north, then east into the open room for two radiation suits. (sector 110)


A demon (Thing 377) in the easternmost room has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level. It is at the same spot as a spectre on skills 4-5, so probably was intended to appear on skills 1-3.
