Other points of interest[edit]

Before going right the second staircase, flip the switch to temporarily lower the lift and enter the next room. Turn right and walk up a staircase. Go forth and take the shotgun. Two platforms on either sides will open, releasing imps and zombiemen. Kill them and do not forget to pick up some stimpacks, various health and armor bonuses.


  1. At the beginning of the level, after you have walked up the first staircase, press the switch to the left to lower a lift. Stand on the platform and wait until it rises. Spring out the window to get outside area (sector 5). Get the armor and the medikit. You can also lower a lift in the northwest of the outside area which leads to the dark room where you can get a box of rockets.
  2. In the brick room to the southwest (where the door to the exit room is found) walk up the stairs and pass between the wall lights. Spin around and drop back to the curved stairs into the brick room; taking a sharp left you should see the briefly lowered platform into (sector 40) where you will find some health bonuses and a supercharge.
  3. In the southwest room where exit door is go to the east and open the brick wall that differs in appearance from the other walls. Enter the area (sector 71) and go down the stairs. Lower the piped-like platform to get four armor bonuses and chainsaw. Beware of the imp that hides behind the platform above Hurt Me Plenty.
