Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go up the stairs at the start then make a right and go around the bend to the end of the hall ahead with the heart on a pillar. Make a left while facing this and you should now be facing a wall with two candles. Open it then kill the two revenants that emerge from it, and pick up the eight health bonuses and energy cell pack in the room. (sector 53)
  2. Drop into the slime pit area with the pillar holding the plasma gun and lower the lift by stepping on the arrow that lowers the other lift. Grabbing the plasma gun tags the secret. (sector 21)
  3. Grab the invulnerability behind the area with the Hell knight (on Ultra-Violence and above only) and the imps atop the toxic falls. (sector 233)
  4. A box of rockets and a rocket can be accessed by lowering the chaingunner platforms by grabbing the red skull key. (sector 283)
  5. You get the energy cell pack the same way you got secret #4 but on the opposite side. (sector 284)
  6. There is a secret radiation suit that can be obtained by going into the alcove with shells and a energy cell, in the final area with the two mancubi. (sector 211)
