Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head past the first building and up the steps behind it to the next one to hte northeast, but do not enter the door. Instead, hug the right wall and walk onto the thin ledge along it, until you reach the Hell noble mural. Lower it to find three energy cells. (sector 730)
  2. In the flooded corridor at the easternmost end of the map, hit the switch at the end to open two compartments. Inside the northern one, press on the back wall with a different color to find a megaarmor. (sector 738)
  3. Head north from the plasma gun room up the curved steps to the door. Follow the hall all the way to the south and flip the switch at the end to open the way to the super shotgun. Shoot the blue panel across from you and drop down. You can then pick up a box of rockets nearby (two boxes of rockets on Ultra-Violence or higher). (sector 734)
  4. In the cave area at the west end of the map where the red key is, raise the walkway to the key, then use the metal lift that takes you out of the water pit while standing on the walkway. This opens a new passage to the left, hiding a soul sphere. (sector 417)
