Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After opening the bars east of the center with the yellow switch, go there and jump east, but stay on the rail just before the red key. Run north and northeast to a ledge with boxes of shotgun shells and a soul sphere. (sector 60)
  2. Head through the southwest hall going west and north. When you reach the next room, three alcoves to the west lower. Enter the middle one and use the bloody wall, which lowers a wall east of here. This contains a berserk pack and partial invisibility. (sector 155)
  3. Enter the blood and go to the southeast end. Go through the bloodfall here to find boxes of rockets and a rocket launcher. (sector 158)
