  1. In the south of the level is a room with three podiums, each of which has a switch. The switch on the southern podium opens up a nearby door, revealing two medikits (one on easy skill), 2-6 imps, a chaingun, and a box of bullets. On hard skill there is also a rocket launcher and a box of rockets. (sector 63)
  2. The room east of #1's room has a western wall which lowers on pressing, revealing 1-3 imps, two medikits (one on easy skill), a soul sphere (not on easy skill), a rocket launcher, and either three rockets (easy skill) or a box of rockets (medium and hard skills). (sector 46)
  3. Heading west from the area containing #1 and #2, you will go through a teleporter to a maze. The southernmost part of this maze has a secret door leading to an area with some monsters, some ammo, a super shotgun, a rocket launcher, a plasma rifle (hard skill only), three medikits (two on easy skill) and a soul sphere (not on easy skill).
