Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the huge watery area, head all the way to the southeast to find rockets, energy cells, and a soul sphere. (sector 253)
  2. In the southeast room with the red plus on the floor, use the switch. Go all the way to the exit area, and open the door in the southeast corner. Use the diamond to teleport back to the beginning of the base area. Head southeast from there to an opening with a BFG9000 and two diamonds, one teleports you back to the beginning, the other back to the exit area. (sector 438)
  3. The room with rising and lowering blocks has a secret passage. To reach it, take the lift back up and enter the room to the north. Press on the column with the down arrow to lower it, but notice that the other column, the one with up arrows, also lowers. Head to that column and flip the switch on the west side, then go back to the room with rising and lowering blocks. A secret passage on the right side will now be open, and an imp guards rockets and a megasphere (or berserk pack on Ultra-Violence or higher). (sector 460)
