Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you clear out the arena, go to the right of the cyberdemon's throne and press on the gargoyle face to lower a lift. Ride it up to the stands, then go along them and jump north to the other side. Press the skull switch, then drop back into the arena. This time press on the gargoyle face to the left of the throne. Ride it up and do the same thing, jump across. Now go along the hallway until you drop in front of the secret exit. (sector 15)
  2. Just before the big arena, press on the column with the demon face to reveal an invulnerability. (sector 223)
  3. Once you have the red key, go back to the elevator, but use the key on the nearby door instead. You can jump into the bathtub here to get thirty-two rockets. (sector 296)
  4. In the same bathroom as above, use the toilet flusher to hear explosions. The picture of Hitler behind you will open revealing a soul sphere. (sector 313)


Sometimes, when flushing the toilet to access the secret supercharge, the barrels explode but the Hitler wall does not open.
