Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After lowering at the start, open the wall to the east to get a super shotgun. (sector 608)
  2. Head east from the hub and north when you can. Keep going north until the floor lowers, then use the marble wall with brown vines to find a backpack. (sector 613)
  3. Head northeast from the hub and jump east. Use the switch, then jump back down the trench and head south. Open the east door and you can get the soul sphere. (sector 619)
  4. At the easternmost hall, head all the way north and use the switch. Return to the hub, head east, and go north, where a computer area map is available. (sector 138)
  5. Enter the southwest area and notice the alcoves on the west wall. Use the leftmost alcove with brown vines to find a medikit, rockets, health bonuses, and a switch. (sector 577)
  6. The switch at the end of Secret #5 will open the southeast alcove in the southwest area, which has a megaarmor. (sector 609)
  7. In the hub, using the central column from all four cardinal directions will lower four bars in a small corridor. This corridor can be accessed by heading southwest of the hub, then using the recessed wall to the north and going that way. Before the steps, open the north wall to find a teleporter that leads to a BFG9000. (sector 443)
  8. South of the door that leads to the red key, open the wall to get shotgun shells. (sector 605)
