Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the area past the cyberdemon with the health bonuses on the rocks, run through the bloodfall at the southwest end to discover a secret passage leading to a megaarmor. (sector 342)
  2. On the way to the red key you will be in a hallway with numerous trees on the south side of the hall and two lights pointing south. The second light points to a set of trees with an opening where a health bonus (which is actually five health bonuses stacked on top of each other) sits in front of a damaged section of wall. Shoot the wall here and follow the passage to find a computer area map. (sector 411)
  3. In the red key area, run up the southeast bloodfall to find a small cave with shotgun shells and a switch. After using this switch, take the eastern path to the room with the teleporter, where another switch will be on the west wall. This switch lowers a lift to the north, so ride it up to get a medikit and a soul sphere. (sector 594)
  4. South of the T-shaped bridge in the northern part of the map lies a hidden switch in the marble arch. Find this switch and press it to open the wall at the corner, where you can get ammo and a berserk pack. (sector 854)
  5. In the southeast area of the map, pressing the second switch you come across opens up the path to the east that leads to the third switch, but it also opens up a secret area on the path to the second switch as well. This secret holds a berserk pack. (sector 1188)
  6. After opening the red and yellow key bars, in the hallway with the heads on candles, open the southeast wall to find a spectre guarding an invulnerability. (sector 1224)
  7. Open the first door and press on the lion face to the south to find some rockets and a rocket launcher. (sector 1229)
