Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the starting room, immediately turn around and open the door to access a room which contains a chainsaw and eight health bonuses. (sector 92)
  2. In the corridor to the right of the starting room, you can see a room with a shootable switch. Shooting this will grant access to the room and past the grate a megaarmor can be obtained. (sector 13)
  3. Past the starting room and beyond the red door, there's a platform with a megasphere beyond the grates. Pressing on its wall will lower that platform and make it accessible from the corridor on the right of the starting room, revealing a megasphere. (sector 573)
  4. Pressing the switch in the secret with the megasphere above will unlock a smaller room opposite to it, accessible from the courtyard previously unlocked with the blue key. (sector 622) Inside, on a small pedestal that can be lowered by pressing it, lie a BFG9000, an energy cell and an energy cell pack. (sector 272)
  5. See secret #4.
  6. Go up the stairs shortly before the yellow key, and make your way onto the elevated sector to the left of the door leading out of the room. Here, behind a fake wall, you can find another megasphere. (sector 363)
  7. Go to the corridor that has the blue and yellow doors opposite one another, and enter the yellow door. Here, you can see a red demon key behind a grate. To access it, you will have to press three different computer screens. The first one is found further back, in the courtyard from where the BFG secret could be accessed: a small red door in this area leads to a computer screen in the back. The other two are located closer to the demon key itself, with the first being the screen immediately to the left of the grate, and the other being a screen on the left of the corridor that leads to a water-filled area. After these three have been pressed, the way to the demon key is opened, accessible from the room to the right of the grate. (sector 299)
  8. Not far after the yellow door, make your way to the area that has water, and press on the shed immediately in front (sector 390) to reveal a partial invisibility. (sectors 389, 265)
  9. See secret #8.
  10. See secret #8.
  11. In the previous secret, a faint arrow may be seen in the water pointing to a curved wall in the same room. Press on that wall to open it (sector 392) and reveal another megasphere. (sector 391)
  12. See secret #11.
  13. Unobtainable, see below. (sector 777)


Sector 777, despite being flagged as a secret, is a decorative zero-height sector that does not contain, nor does it lead to, any items or new paths. Because it cannot be reached in any way, obtaining 100% Secrets in this map is normally impossible.
