Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Hop across the two poles above the lava pit near the starting point until you reach the lift which will descend. Move forward a bit, but go back and you will teleport into a secret area with a megaarmor. (sector 186)
  2. At the ledge northeast of the large blood pit where the yellow key is, press on the marble wall with the gargoyle face on it to open a secret room containing armor bonuses, ammo, and a backpack. (sector 340)
  3. At the eastern chambers of the map, a room will darken upon stepping into it and two shotgun guys will pop up. There is a switch in this room that you need to press. After doing so, return to the blood pit in the center of the map and drop down, then head southeast to where the shotgun shells are. The bars near the shotgun shells have been lowered, allowing you to reach the soul sphere at the end. (sector 415)
