Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the southern part of the map with the damaging blood, a skull switch is in the far back of the room. After pressing it, leave this area and go north to find an invulnerability. (sector 103)
  2. In the southeasternmost part of the map, open up the southwesternmost compartment and head inside. Look to the southeast for a shootable purple button which reveals a soul sphere. (sector 718)
  3. In the northeasternmost area with the spider mastermind, press both switches guarded by Hell knights and barons of Hell to unlock the teleporter to the north. Next to the teleporter, press on the wall to the right to reveal another teleporter, leading to the center of the arena, possibly telefragging the spider mastermind if it has not been killed yet. (sector 951)
  4. The ledge to the south of the rocket launcher has two purple pillars on it. Head to this ledge and drop below the pillars. There is a tucked-away switch at the southwest end. After using it, go to the northwest of where the rocket launcher was located to see a wall lowering. This leads to some steps leading up to the western side, to an area that counts as three secrets. Flipping the switch here lowers the side walls leading to the ledges which had the mancubi, and you can find an energy cell, rockets, and medikits up here. (sector 1193)
  5. See Secret #4. However, it is impossible to trigger this secret without cheats as the sector itself is in a depression too thin for the player to stand on. (sector 1233)
  6. See Secret #4. (sector 1234)


Since Secret #5 is unreachable normally, only 83% secrets is possible in this map.
