Other points of interest[edit]


  1. To the north of the large crushing ceiling near the start are two alcoves, one with a stimpack and one with a medikit. Entering the latter opens up a room with a chainsaw. The lighter-coloured section of the eastern wall here is a secret door leading to a corridor containing health bonuses - it leads to the alcove with the stimpack. (sector 161)
  2. After passing all the crushers, head across the lava room via the walkways to the north-west exit. Go up the steps then round one corner. The eastern wall here (marked with a different texture) is a secret door leading to 1-3 demons and a switch. (sector 152)
  3. Press the switch in #2 and head across the lowered path. There is a secret door to the east at the end of this path (marked with a different texture) leading to a cage with a soul sphere. (sector 156)
  4. The platform symmetrically opposite the platform by the yellow key (where there is a switch) is accessed via a door from a corridor. There is a secret door at the north end of this corridor leading to a partial invisibility. It is also possible to jump down to the megasphere. (sector 57)
  5. Press any of the skull switches near the teleporter to the exit. This reveals a teleporter to a room with the blue key (note that the platforms lower on stepping on them, so you only have one chance to get the key). Now go through the blue door, through the teleporter, and walk towards the radiation shielding suit(s). Two walls will open - behind the northern one is a secret door (marked with a brighter red texture) leading to the red key. (sector 226)

Secret exit: After getting the red key (see secret #5 above), teleport back then head through the northern red door in the building to the north-west of the yellow key building. A lift in the centre can be lowered - after it rises, jump across to the eastern ledge, from which it is possible to jump to the secret exit switch. Note that there are no secret levels in this WAD.
