Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the start, enter the lava to the southeast and head north up the rocks to get a berserk pack. (sector 2058)
  2. Head southwest from the starting area and into the lava. Enter the room here to get a chainsaw, a backpack, and a stimpack. (sector 2579)
  3. Head west from the round room, then south and take the southeast steps. At the top, head north and use the east wall to find stimpacks. Press the switch at the megaarmor to reveal the monster closets, then use the switch in the north closet to lower the megaarmor. (sector 2031)
  4. Head south from the start, taking the southwest steps and crossing the platform. Head west again and use the switch here. Head to the southwest end, south of the bigger room, and use the west wall to find a hidden switch. Using both switches will reveal a soul sphere in the room at the middle part of the west side of the map. (sector 3282)
  5. On the platforms at the south end of the map, go to the second one, then run and jump west over the wall. The platform with an energy cell pack, a box of rockets, and a medikit counts as the secret. (sector 2533)
  6. At the southeasternmost end, lower the southeast wall to find ammo and a medikit. (sector 3790)
  7. Open the blue door and head down, then west and north. Open the outer corner wall to get a backpack, shotgun shells, a box of rockets, and an energy cell pack. (sector 3234)
  8. Before jumping into the final arena, look to the east and shoot the switch. This teleports an invulnerability behind you. (sector 3453)
