Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Get to the yellow key, then return to the starting area. A wall to the left has a soul sphere. (sector 317)
  2. On the T-shaped bridge, shoot at the northeast wall adorned with skulls, then leave to the east. If you have not done so already, lower the main platform with the switch, then use the north teleporter to appear on the upper ledge. Go straight east for a BFG9000. (sector 477)
  3. Open the wall in Secret #2 for a teleporter to a secret area guarded by Hell knights. You can find a green armor, shotgun shells, ammo clips, and an energy cell pack, although if you are playing on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower, there will not be any supplies in this room. (sector 488)
