  1. In the northwest hall, drop into the moat and lower the wall to the south. This reveals a switch and a teleporter. The swtich opens another switch in the eastern section with the demons and spectres, which can start crushers in that area to help you there. Note that if you shoot the switch above the moat before you open the wall for this secret, you will need to access this secret via Secret #5 in order to get it then. (sector 320)
  2. In the room with the barons of Hell and the cyberdemon, get on the wall on the left side and hug it as you go north. You will eventually go through the wall and get a BFG9000. (sector 335)
  3. In the southeast room, when you get the cage at the south end, look northwest towards the entrance. Shoot the switch there, then quickly get back to the central room and to the southeast column which has lowered. You will teleport to a backpack. (sector 424)
  4. Leave Secret #3, then return to the hall where you went to the cage at the south end. Another hall to the west has opened. Open the door and collect the backpack on the teleporter, then the next backpack at the northeast side. The switch here will open up another switch in the eastern section with the demons and spectres, which can stop the crushers in accordance with the switch mentioned in Secret #1. (sector 474)
  5. In the exit area, the right teleporter leads back to Secret #1. (sector 504)
