Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northwest part of the map with the two shrines on the west side, get behind the left shrine and use the switch there, then enter the other shrine to find an invulnerability. (sector 115)
  2. From the fountain with the health bonuses at the east end of the town, enter the building to the west of the fountain. This can be done by entering the alley to the northwest. Climb the steps and head all the way south to the terrace, then find the indentation on the north wall and use it. Return inside and go to the northwest corner to find armor bonuses and a backpack. (sector 347)
  3. In the building to the right of the boat on the west side of the map, open the door leading outside to the boat (which can only be opened from the inside). Approach the lone barrel and get into the water from where it is located, then quickly turn around and re-enter the building. Head to the east side of the wooden scaffolding that touches the ground and hit the switch here before it disappears. This will open a passage at the northeast corner, allowing you to reach a secret blue keycard. (sector 952)
  4. With the keycard from the previous secret, head into the building east of the fountain with health bonuses. Take the hall leading to the basement and open the bars with the blue keycard. In this room, you will have six skull switches to press in order to open the door to the left. You will have to be somewhat quick with these switches, but not too quick as it may not lower the door all the way. The correct order is southwest, northeast, southeast, east, west, and northwest, with the last of these switches triggering the door. If you mess it up, the green switch to the southwest resets the door. Past the door, follow the candles and press on the base of the picture to remove the bars you saw earlier. Enter the teleporter to reach the BFG9000. (sector 1027)
  5. Use the red key to lower the red bars and head east. At the statue, continue southeast to the fountain and head down the steps further to the east. When the doors open, enter the dilapidated building nearby with spectres inside. Get onto the bricks next to the tree and climb onto the outer wall, then go north and jump to the ground behind the fence. Go to the gray lift to the left and ride it up, then make a jump to the north to get partial invisibility and a rocket launcher. (sector 1475)
  6. From the pool with the rocket launcher at the southwest end of the town, head southeast from the lamp to find a skull switch in the rocks. After using it, go north until you reach the second set of docks, then head east to find a lowered pillar with a soul sphere. (sector 2808)
