Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Inside the small room with the shotgun, press on the wall where the dead marine is to find a computer area map. (sector 205)
  2. Through the building on the right and in the room furthest to the east with the red bars, find the switch in the lower corner of the room. After using it, go back up the steps to find that a closet with two demons has opened up. Lower the wall in this closet to find a megaarmor. (sector 592)
  3. Take a left at the main intersection of the map and go through the door. In this next room are several blue torches at the center of the room behind cages. One of the caged torches has bloody skulls behind it. Shoot this one and a lift lowers, revealing a berserk pack. (sector 621)
  4. At the caverns with the lava river, a red rock wall near the mouth of the river can be opened, revealing a backpack, a medikit, three boxes of rockets, and two energy cells. (sector 994)
  5. Open the red door and just outside and to the left, lower the wall next to the stimpack. This reveals a box of rockets and a switch. This switch lowers a lift back in the marble hallway, but you have to be fast when reaching it. From the switch, run back through the red door, to the east, and then to the north once down the stairs. The lift will be in the northern closet. If you make it, collect the armor bonuses and use the teleporter. On the other side, hop across the pillars to get a soul sphere. (sector 1158)
  6. Open the yellow door in the far northwest part of the map and press the switch behind it. Now return to the intersection and go north, but when you can go to the lava on the east and west sides, take the lava to the east. Run south to the teleporter here to wind up in the cave near the yellow door, where you can collect energy cells and a BFG9000. (sector 1347)
