Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you head outside, immediately jump into the blood to the east, then head west into a cave that contains a medikit, a radiation suit, a backpack, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 409)
  2. At the north end of the outside area, head east and drop down between the two big rocks. If you do it right, you will land on a megasphere. (sector 227)
  3. After opening up the complex in the northern part of the map, enter and open the door. Head down the steps and the first thing you will see is a column with armor bonuses around it. Going up to this column will open a door. Quickly head back up the steps, open the door to the entrance, and enter the south passage before it closes. At the end of the passage is an energy cell pack, a megaarmor, a medikit, a rocket launcher, and two boxes of rockets. (sector 389)
  4. After using the switch at the northern complex, a wall to the west will open with imps, Hell knights, or barons of Hell depending on your skill level. On the other side of this hall, get the box of rockets at the north side of the column, then look north. There is a gargoyle switch in the distance that you can shoot, which lowers the southern wall near where the blue key is. Go across this lowered wall to hear a lift lower. Return to the north hall and there will be an opening to the north, containing stimpacks. (sector 370)
  5. Drop to the area below Secret #4, then head southwest on this ledge all the way to a backpack and two boxes of rockets. (sector 520)
  6. In the same large area at the last secret, if you head into the damaging blood and go all the way northwest, you will find an invulnerability and a teleporter back to the complex. (sector 588)
  7. After you get the blue key, return to the south end of the outside area and use the blue switch to reach a gargoyle switch to the west. There is another switch on the backside of this one. Use that side and leave the small building its in, then turn north and head out here. To the north are some steps that lead up to a soul sphere. (sector 113)
