Grab the berserk pack and drop down. You can get a chaingun if you go north, and find some enemies near barrels here. If you go south, you will find a shotgun and a switch. Hit this switch to raise a wall where your starting point was. Now lower this wall and ride it up. Be wary if you intend to take the rocket launcher as a crusher will come down if you do. You will have to build a bridge to cross further to the east, so hit the switch in the southeastern corner of this area to raise it up. Continue behind the wall to find a satyr switch opening the gates behind you. Go through here and drop down into the final area featuring a couple of Hell knights and some cacodemons. Watch out for the barrels as you fight them, and then exit.
