Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, go to the northeast corner for the floor to lower. Four imps will be in front of two switches. Use either switch and take the lift up to the starting hub, then go to the southeast corner which is now lowered. Inside is another imp and a soul sphere. (sector 7)
  2. Open the yellow door and press on the terminal immediately to your left, which will lower it along with the wall behind it. A soul sphere is on this wall. (sector 101)
  3. In the previous secret, press on the wall with the skull to lower a lift with zombiemen (plus one shotgun guy on Hurt Me Plenty or higher). Ride this lift all the way up to find boxes of rockets and boxes of shotgun shells. (sector 100)
  4. Now go across the lift for the next secret with a berserk pack. If you press on the north wall, you will find a computer area map. (sector 99)
