Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Immediately to the right at the start is a secret door leading to a shotgun. (sector 123)
  2. After the first curved passageway, go through the room with several exploding barrels, and then into the small room to the east. This small room has a secret door on the east wall leading to an armor. (sector 61)
  3. North of #2 is a room with a small nukage area in the south. Entering the darker region to the north raises a post in the nukage. Shoot the back wall of this post, head through the door to the north-west, then head west and north. A door will be open revealing an imp and a light amplification visor. (sector 139)
  4. In the north-west is a room with several crates. Head south-east from the south-westernmost crate - a door will open up revealing a rocket launcher and a radiation shielding suit. (sector 122)
  5. Press the switch in the room west of the blue key, and head back to #3's area. A door has opened in the east of this area revealing a megaarmor and a computer area map. (sector 64)
  6. Entering #5 opens up another secret area in the north of this area containing four imps and four health bonuses. (sector 77)
  7. The switch that opens up #5 also opens up a door south-west of #5 leading to an outdoor area. This area has a secret door to the west (near the curved staircase) leading to a soul sphere. (sector 66)
  8. After going through the blue door, continue up the stairs, through a door, then press the skull to your right. The floor lowers, allowing access to a teleporter to a platform in the cyberdemon area containing several monsters, a backpack, a medikit, a box of shotgun shells, and a megaarmor. (sector 160)
  9. The lift leading up to #8 (activated on climbing the stairs behind the blue door) also counts as a secret. (sector 194)
