Other points of interest[edit]

Near the end, at the red key switch, as you traverse the small crevice and step over a linedef, you will be teleported to a different area that looks just like the previous room. As soon as you cross over, don't jump off. Use the no-clip cheat code IDCLIP and go back to find a BFG9000 in a tiny area instead of the connecting area.


  1. Up in the room with the rocket launcher, check the three red bars in the walls nearby (linedefs #3331, # 3265 and #3334, third screenshot). They will lower the three bars and grant you the access upstairs. Plenty of goodies, here. (sector 40)
  2. North, where imps attack you from a catwalk, check a switch (linedef #4450). Grab the health bonuses and the armor bonuses. (sector 697)
  3. In the octagonal room with the stairs, climb them up and use the wall (linedef #5024) and wear the megaarmor. (sector 527)
  4. Enter the pools of blood (sector 715) near the grinder, grab the plasma gun.
  5. Down in the end, enter the nukage pool and get plasma ammo and health. (sector 689)


Down in the room with the grinder, if you don't cross all the three lines and then hit the switch (linedef #630) to open the wall in front of the lift (sector #215), crossing the last lines will close definitely the wall: the switch is a one-way switch.
