Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Along the caverns at the south end of the map, in the cavern with the pond, get onto the high ledge with the mancubus. Walk through a wall just south of where the berserk pack is to drop onto a soul sphere. (sector 147)
  2. From the start, head north and onto the bed, then press on the wall in the back to reveal a backpack. (sector 240)
  3. Head further north from the previous secret to the room with the fireplace. Use the wall with pipes to lower a lift, then ride it up. Jump across the gap to the east and through a wall that has a ridge at the bottom. You will teleport to a secret area with shotgun shells and lots of armor bonuses. (sector 251)
  4. If you have the red key, you can open the red door next to the exit, where you can find ammo and a backpack. (sector 541)
