Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the end of the north tunnel, open the east door and open the wall in the back to find a soul sphere. (sector 234)
  2. Head to the east tunnel and use the wall with the candle in front of it. Follow the passage to reach an outside area with a BFG9000 and a box of rockets. (sector 108)
  3. Take the west tunnel and open the door at the end. The steps will rise as you enter. At the top, use the wall with electricity symbols on it to get a plasma gun. (sector 116)
  4. In the blue key room, open the wall in the southeast corner for a passage containing health and armor bonuses leading back to the starting point. (sector 23)
  5. In the blue key room, use the wall in the northwest corner to reach an outside area with a computer area map, a megaarmor, ammo, a rocket launcher, and a door leading north. You will find medikits and more ammo as you continue north, and the megasphere at the top of the blue steps is on a teleporter taking you back to the starting point. (sector 187)
  6. Open the blue door and open the next door to reach a four-way intersection. Open the east door and in this room, use the terminal in the middle. This makes it rise. Go past where it was and a wall will open in front of you with a blur artifact inside. (sector 134)
  7. In the northernmost room with the nukage, use the wall to the west that the nukage is flowing towards to find a super shotgun and shotgun shells. (sector 216)
  8. In the same room, use the wall to the north with the candle in front of it to find ammo clips, a stimpack, shotgun shells, and radiation suits. (sector 276)
