Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the north end of the central lava pool, there is a switch behind the cage that lowers the door to the right of it, as well as a wall to the west with chaingunners. Lower the fire wall behind them to find a teleporter, then go along the walkway to get a soul sphere. (sector 115)
  2. Head east from the start, then south a bit. When you see the shotgun shells, turn to the west and open the angled wall to find shotgun shells, health bonuses, armor bonuses, and an energy cell pack. (sector 272)
  3. In the southwest room of the southeast area of the map, press the switch to reveal another one behind it along with some cages with chaingunners (shotgun guys on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower). Press the next switch to reveal Hell knights and a switch in the northeast corner. Press that switch to open the wall to the west. As soon as you step in this corridor, turn to the south wall and go through it to access the chaingunner cage on the west side, which has a berserk pack. (sector 353)
  4. In the red key area, jump into the southeast lava pit and press on the recessed wall at the south end to find a teleporter. Take it to get a blur artifact. (sector 404)


Eight shotgun guys (Things 540, 545, 620, 621, 754, 759, 761 and 762) in the northern monster caches have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they do not actually appear in the level.
