Other points of interest[edit]


  1. On your way through the blue skull key path is an area with two revenants. After killing them continue forward and look left. You should be able to see a demonic eye in a window. Shoot at the eye like you were to be playing SIGIL and a room with a soulsphere will open behind you. (sector 403)
  2. In the large hallway with the three mancubi, in the middle room is a wall you can open that will take you to a soulsphere and three cacodemons. (sector 207)
  3. Opposite of the switch which lowers the red skull key are three indents in the wall. Lower the eastern indent like a lift and ride it up. Ahead is a megaarmor which is the secret tag, however, running to it triggers a trap with two cacodemons and a pain elemental. (sector 394)
