Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After going through the door (opened by a switch) directly ahead of you at the start, turn left then through the first door on your left. The bookcase on the northern wall is a secret door leading to a medikit, an energy cell pack, and a partial invisibility. (sector 116)
  2. In the north of the level is a 'church' area. Pressing the centre of the cross at the northern end reveals a room with a rocket launcher, a medikit, and an armor (two in multiplayer). (sector 140)
  3. In the church area, one of the red platforms has a stimpack on it. Stepping on this platform lowers a wall opposite, revealing three demons and a medikit. (sector 155)
  4. After jumping across the chasm in the north-east of the level, head up the stairs, then turn left and left again. Stepping on the red square briefly lowers a wall directly to the north (it can be lowered repeatedly), revealing a demon, a box of rockets, and a medikit (two in multiplayer). (sector 210)
  5. In the centre of the level is an outdoor area with a megasphere on a platform. First press the switch in the room overlooking this outdoor area to the north, then the switch in the room overlooking this outdoor area to the north-west. These lower the columns surrounding the megasphere to ground level. Now head up the steps south of the blue key until you reach the outdoor area, and jump down onto a ledge. At the end of this ledge is a room with a box of bullets, a box of rockets, and a switch which lowers the megasphere. Note that if you step on any of the lit sectors surrounding the megasphere, it will rise again. (sector 193)
