Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the southwest teleporter, use the wall with a white light at the bottom and follow the trail of health and armor bonuses to a switch. Flip it to get a soul sphere. (sector 94)
  2. Head east on the ledge where the red key is and use the wall there to reveal a nearby corridor with health bonuses and a green armor. (sector 99)
  3. At the exit area, position yourself behind the exit so that you can jump southwest and land on the jagged platform over the slime. When you do make the jump, head to the south end of the ledge and use the wall, which will open a corridor of health and armor bonuses. Flip the switch for a lift up, then the next switch to get a BFG9000. (sector 101)
  4. Advance east of the area with slime to have a wall lower in front of you with cacodemons (along with a pain elemental on Hurt Me Plenty or higher). Get on this wall by using the steps to the north, then use the north wall here to find a trail of health and armor bonuses leading to a super shotgun. (sector 171)
