Walkthrough[edit]

Map of Helipad
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.

Essentials[edit]

This map is quite simple and linear to follow. Most of the areas are optional, and none of the keys are required to finish it. When you start, pick up the chaingun and turn back. On the right side of the wall, there is a hidden door that leads you into a techbase interior. There, jump to the bottom and go to the right again. You will easily see the exit, which you can simply go into and finish the level.
