Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the yellow skull key area, use the northeast skull switch, then run back up the steps to the one near the red switch. Head to the soul sphere to the southwest and it will lower. (sector 33)
  2. At the southeast end, use the switch at the east side to open a compartment with a cyberdemon. In that compartment, find a red light on the east wall and use it, then run to the south side of the map. Take the lift to the east down to get a berserk pack, a box of shotgun shells, medikits, boxes of rockets, energy cell pack, and the red keycard. (sector 2069)
  3. Head south from the start and when you get on the bridge, quickly run back to the starting point to get a berserk pack from the back door. (sector 2331)
