Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head straight north to the start all the way to the room with the door and lift. In this room, from where the light is shining, use the singular terminal to find a chaingun. (sector 294)
  2. Climb the steps past the yellow door, then go on the southern ledge. Open the terminal here for a teleporter, which takes you to a cage just outside the yellow door. You will find a megaarmor at the end. (sector 304)
  3. Take the door near Secret #1, and next to the metal plate containing the berserk pack, open the gray wall. There are imps guarding rockets and a chainsaw in these passages. (sector 343)
  4. Open the yellow door, but instead of going through, head back to the starting point. The door here is open, containing a backpack and a box of rockets. (sector 398)


A deathmatch start (Thing 303) in the west has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, but because of special handling in the engine, it functions normally in the level.
