Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Northwest of where the chainsaw is located is an alcove with a cacodemon and some supplies. The wall behind the cacodemon can be opened, but only after going through much of the level. On the way to the exit at the south end of the map, a wall opens up while in the red hallway where a mancubus (not on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) attacks from behind. Enter the area behind the mancubus and get on the ledge above the damaging liquid, then go to the switch at the north end. You can then go back to the north end of the map and collect a soul sphere from behind the wall. (sector 26)
  2. Go down the steps to the left of Secret #1 and go a bit north, then look east. Press on the emblem behind the chaingun to hear a door open. The door is slightly southwest from where you are standing, and it hides a berserk pack. (sector 181)
  3. Open the red door and use the lift to go up. Use the gray wall at the top to find a cacodemon guarding a shotgun and boxes of shotgun shells. (sector 193)
