The cyberdemon taunts you throughout this level. At the first encounter, hit the switch to the left just inside the door to slam the door on him. At the second encounter, he will fight a spider mastermind for you. If you can't kill the cyberdemon at this point, if you time it right you can step up onto the block he is on. The block will lower and once he steps outside that square he will be transported away.


  1. Getting the megasphere on the east side of the map requires a bit of trekking just to the west of it. First off, head directly west from the megasphere and open the wooden wall dead ahead (which counts as the actual secret). In front of you will be a super shotgun, and down the steps, the switch will open up the way to the north. Follow this path to a pit with some shotgun shells in the middle. The switch here lowers the nearby lift, so ride it up. Open the door at the top to reappear back where the lighted halls were. If you notice, you will now be able to reach the megasphere. (sector 440)
