Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the actual library, the northwest bookshelf has an eye switch. Press it to lower two bookshelves on the upper level. Enter the passage behind the southeast bookshelf and descend the steps. The teleporter will take you to the cage you saw earlier where the chaingunner was, allowing you to get a stimpack and a box of ammo. (sector 35)
  2. The same switch mentioned above lowered the southwest bookshelf. The passage behind it leads to the theater portion with several zombiemen. A super shotgun is below, and the teleporter will take you to a cage with imps at the north end of the map. (sector 234)
  3. From the cage of imps mentioned in the previous secret, open the wall to the right with the skull marking on it for a passage with armor bonuses. This area has Secret #5 in it as well. (sector 245)
  4. From the same cage of imps, if you head west, there's a wooden door with a skull marking on it, which has a shortcut leading to the exit. (sector 263)
  5. See Secret #3. (sector 286)
