Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the central arena, use the gargoyle switch to lower the bridges on both sides. You can run up to the east or west walls below the red areas, each of which counts as one secret. (sector 7)
  2. Enter the eastern yard in the previously mentioned central arena. The pillar here has two switches. The one in front lowers the bridges, while the one on the backside lowers the pillar in the western yard. Quickly press both switches and run to the west, riding the lift up to the red area with rockets and a box of ammo. (sector 50)
  3. Get onto the bridge on the western side and use the teleporter to the south. When you emerge, turn around and lower the wall here for a rocket and shotgun shells. (sector 51)


In the central arena, two sides of the red door, the sides that have the red skulls on them, actually require the yellow key to open. Both linedefs (543 and 550) have action 34 (D1 Door (Yellow) Open Stay), meaning that if the player cheats to get the yellow key (since there is no yellow key present in the level) and opens the door on either of these linedefs, it will stay open.
