Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Fall at the start, then head left and north to a switch. Afterwards, head back south, to the right, and then up, then enter the room with the star-shaped steps. In this room, an arrow points to a wall at the west side which conceals a switch. Press the switch, then quickly head to where the candle is to the east. Climb the star-shaped staircase to the north carefully but quickly until you are at the west side, then jump back to the west. Quickly run north and northeast through the passage before it closes. The passage ends at a BFG9000, an energy cell, and a megasphere. (sector 285)
  2. In the central room with the star-shaped steps, head south of the southeast staircase and through a small passage to find boxes of shotgun shells and a backpack. (sector 365)
