Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the start, open the door to the north, then head east, up the stairs you see. Turn south and open the door. Past the next set of steps is another intersection, where you should turn left, then left again up another set of steps to a platform with arachnotrons. Look northwest and jump into the fire that had chaingunners (shotgun guys on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) to find an energy cell pack. (sector 1995)
  2. Grab the blue keycard and the floor will drop down. Head east and jump down to a berserk pack and a computer area map. (sector 3651)
  3. In the red keycard area, take the east door, and climb up and use the skull switch in the northeast corner, then the next skull switch that is revealed to the east. This will raise a bridge to the library area to the northwest. You can spot a megaarmor on top of the first bookshelf. To get it, stand on the bridge and look for the flickering face, which is to the southwest. Shoot it, then quickly shoot the northeast eye, the southeast eye, the northwest eye, and finally the southwest eye to lower the bookshelf. (sector 4411)
  4. Use the blue keycard on the eye switch to unlock the rising and lowering platforms, then enter the leftmost one. Look west to spot a soul sphere on a bookshelf. Look a bit north from there to find a skull switch. When you shoot that switch, the bookshelf will lower allowing you to reach the soul sphere. (sector 4589)


  • At the area in the northeastern corner of the map, a BFG9000 is hidden in the southeastern corner of the upper level. However, the area is only accessible via an arch-vile jump and there is none close by. So without a major effort to lure one into position, the weapon is unreachable.
