Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head northeast of the fountain onto the ridge overlooking another pool, but do not fall in. Instead, follow the ridge northeast, then make a jump to the northeast platform with the berserk pack. (sector 25)
  2. In the building northeast of the main fountain, the southeast corner is brighter than the rest of the room. Touch this corner, then head to the northwest corner and through the passage behind the wall before it rises. Open the wall to get another berserk pack. (sector 192)
  3. In the building northwest of the fountain, get to the switch that raises the fountain, which will make two walls with monsters lower. Get on the left wall and face northwest so that you can see a button in the distance. Shoot it, then head north and west until you see an opening to the north. From that opening, jump northeast to the platform with the blur artifact. (sector 42)
  4. In the room southwest of the fountain with the shotgun, a switch is on the east side of the main block. Press it and quickly leave the room, then head into the alley south of the fountain. One of the steps has lowered. Fall in and head west before the step rises and follow the passage to get to a backpack. Follow the longer passage here to a lift that leads to a soul sphere. (sector 181)
  5. When you touch the grass at the eastern courtyard, a door open. Go to the east side of the big rock to the north and enter it, going into the teleporter. Drop down the ledges to reach a computer area map. (sector 173)


A multiplayer-only BFG9000 (Thing 221) has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level.
