  2. In the hub, go to the green torch at the northeast end and use it to lower a part of the water. You will find a soul sphere. (sector 32)
  3. Take the north door at the hub and then use a wall north of the east terminal to get a berserk pack. (sector 41)

Go a bit into this hall and use the wall with the splattered body to the north. The lift down leads to a soul sphere. (sector 223)
  9. Grab the blue key, then head back to the hall south of the steps. Use the lift to go back up, then jump south to get a BFG9000. (sector 143)
