Other points of interest[edit]


  1. To get the soul sphere in the middle of the map, jump east from the yellow key platform to land on it. Although the platform does lower when you pick up the yellow key, if you miss the secret the first time, it is still possible to jump to the secret from the top if you straferun. (sector 21)
  2. In the main area of the map, jump into the void at the north end. A wall will lower with a Hell knight and a soul sphere, plus a teleporter back. (sector 595)
  3. When trying to reach the BFG9000, you will notice that several monster closets open up. One of these closets does not open up however; it is the one just east of the red door. Use it to find zombiemen and a teleporter, which takes you to armor bonuses, a stimpack, and a soul sphere. (sector 810)
