Other points of interest[edit]



  1. Jump to the bloody pillar to the southeast of the hub and use it to find a plasma gun. (sector 104)
  2. In the library at the southeast end, as you approach the western side, the bookshelf will lower revealing a chaingunner on a platform with a medikit. This platform counts as a secret and can be lowered directly. (sector 158)
  3. Head to the eastern side of the library from Secret #2 to lower another bookshelf. A revenant guards shotgun shells on another platform that can be directly lowered. (sector 733)
  4. While still in the library section of the map, step on the nukage pit to the southwest to lower some bookshelves to the east with two switches. Use the satyr switch to open a teleporter in the nukage, which has a computer area map in front of it. The teleporter takes you to a chaingunner compartment containing a box of ammo. (sector 160)
  5. Head into the passage behind the red key area and use the lift, but also use the southern wall to find a hidden door just above you. You will need to ride the lift up and enter the open door as the lift rises. When you do it right, you will have to ride one more lift to reach an invulnerability. (sector 212)


  • Using the wall in the southwest of the starting room reveals a small room with a rocket launcher and thirteen rockets.


In the nukage room behind the blue key door, there are four arachnotrons which rise up on platforms to ambush the player. However, the platforms they rise up on are too small for them which renders them stuck and thus unable to move or attack.
