Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the door southwest of the start. Here, find an eye switch tucked in the west wall at the northwest corner. Shoot it to make a block move, leading to an urn of demon blood and improved vision. (sector 592)
  2. Move the moving block further and press the switch to get a green skull key. (thing 263)
  3. At the south end, go across the bridges over lava and head to the switch. Press the backside switch before pressing the front, then return over the bridges and head north. Drop to the lava there and around the north column to find a teleporter. This leads to a large health bonus, vials of demon blood, a Hellbolt, and an urn of demon blood (on the higher skill levels). (sector 598)
  4. At the northwest end, go to the lava and head across the platforms to the north end. Go through the north wall and use the switch. Get out of the lava and head northeast until you see a soul sphere. (sector 112)
  5. At the blue skull key, there is a switch southeast of the key. Use it and head east to a teleporter. Head around to get to a different teleporter. This leads to the purple sentient mushroom. (thing 683)
  6. At the east side, take the north lift up, then head west. Just after the fire wall at the west side, quickly jump east over the rail and enter the teleporter before it closes to get to a box of nails and a green skull switch that reveals a steel shield. (sector 761)
  7. Press all three green skull switches in the map to open the door at the southeast end. Take the teleporter to get a Soultaker. (sector 1092)
