Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you reach the office north of the large pool that eventually will have the blue key, press on the northeast bookshelf in the room to reveal a switch. This will lower a wall next to the other skull switch. Drop down to get a BFG9000. (sector 356)
  2. At the open street at the far north end of the map, the way to the west is blocked off by numerous crates. Head to the northernmost wall and face west to spot a cracked wall in the distance. Shoot at this cracked wall to open the northeast corner. In this secret area you will find ammo, a backpack, medikits, partial invisibility, and a megaarmor. (sector 397)
  3. In the northeast part of the map is a large crate room. Use the northern lift to hop onto the crates going southeast to the balcony. Then hop onto the defunct lift in between the crate and the balcony and press on the middle of the crate to lower it. Inside the next crate you will find a plasma gun and an energy cell pack. (sector 601)
  4. Leave the large crate room via the southwest door and go up the steps. A chaingunner appears in front of you soon enough. Take the lift he was on up and press on the south wall to open it. You will find boxes of rockets and a rocket launcher. The lift can be lowered only once this way, but there is a thin hidden skull switch in the room southwest of this corridor, to the right of the northwestern bookshelf, which can be used to lower the lift and access this secret if you missed it. (sector 604)
  5. Exit Secret #4 via the right lift and when you leave, the wall ahead opens up. At the end of the hall, open the door and press the switch next to the door. The switch lowers the crate, so get on it and head north into the stack of crates to find a computer area map. If you press on the wall east of it, you will be back at Secret #3, except now the wall to your right lowers along with the crate. Head out here and to the left to get a megasphere. (sector 617)
  6. To reach the secret exit, in the red key room, open the door to the right and activate either lift, then quickly run out and up the steps, then into the open passage before it closes. (sector 876)
