Other points of interest[edit]


  1. A chainsaw is behind the starting point. (sector 274)
  2. Open the yellow door and go all the way to the northeast corner. Use it to reach a secret area with energy cells and a soul sphere. (sector 293)
  3. Use the red switch to open the big door to the east, then go through and head west. Keep going west, climb the steps, go north and west again, then south to a switch. After using it, go to the hall with steps and to the east will be a compartment with a pain elemental (cacodemon on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower). Use the north wall in this compartment to get a plasma gun. (sector 367)
