Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the right side of the tomb with the nukage pit, there are two switches on the far side. The right one lowers the metal lift. Hug the corner as it rises to appear in a thin passage. (sector 104)
  2. Follow the passage in the previous secret south, then west. When you reach the fork, take the passage that leads southwest and go all the way down this passage until you reach the end, where you can open a wall for a shortcut to the yellow key area. (sector 178)
  3. In the hall south of the tomb hub, you can access the red-floored area on the west side by lowering one of the windows. The window that needs to be lowered is the one that is a darker shade of gray. (sector 206)
  4. In the aforementioned red-floored area, press on the metal panel in the northwest to lower the platform, then hug the northwest corner until you reach another passage. (sector 223)
  5. In the red key area, behind the westernmost column, you can lower a wall to reach the same tunnel network from Secret #4. (sector 230)
  6. Head southwest from the tomb hub and head all the way to the western end. The wall ahead will lower. Ignore the switch here and press on the wall further to the west to reach the tunnel network. Secrets #4, #5, and #6 all lead to the same tunnel network. (sector 233)
  7. In the tunnel network from the previous three secrets, head for the southern end. In the middle, you should find a passage going north. Jump to where the candle is for shotgun shells. (sector 281)
  8. Now drop down from the previous secret and head northeast, where the floor will lower. Here, lower the pillar from the east side to get a plasma gun, an energy cell, and a medikit. (sector 288)
  9. Head north from the tomb hub, using the switch to go down. Head all the way west, where the supplies will lower. Leave this area. Now, at the northern end of the tunnel network (a bit west from the entrance that is Secret #5), head north and then down the steps, following this passage until it reaches the blur artifact. (sector 303)
  10. At the right side of the tomb with the nukage pit, in the southeast corner, you can enter the nukage and follow the passage to a BFG9000. (sector 324)


A multiplayer-only burning barrel (Thing 299) and a multiplayer-only evil eye (Thing 298) in the south have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level.
