Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northeasternmost end of the cave system, approach the dead end for a large compartment nearby to open, containing energy cells, rockets, armor bonuses, and a backpack. (sector 46)
  2. In the first big room, go to the center, then to the north terminal. Notice the button that is glowing. Use it, then go southwest through the open door to get health bonuses and a green armor. (sector 118)
  3. When you get to the blue key room, the wall opens revealing an arch-vile to the left. In the compartment where the arch-vile came from is a small button on the south wall. This reveals a teleporter to the east. Take it to get to a room where you can get a soul sphere. (sector 128)
  4. At the outside area on the west side of the map, get on the raised tan portion and open the north wall to find a chaingun and health bonuses. (sector 200)
  5. Open the red door in the tan room and go through the green cave until you find a white rock. You can lower this rock, so do so and ride it up. Head west and hug the north wall as you venture west, until you find a wall covered with vines. Open the wall and take the teleporter you find to get to a room with health bonuses, a backpack, and a computer area map. (sector 577)
  6. In the large cave system at the east end of the map, get to the middle section with the marble walls and skull switch. Press the switch, then use the northwest lift to go up. Follow the path to another skull switch, but jump southeast of it onto another ledge. Use the wall where the moss growth is, then follow the path behind it, where a wall will open up at the end. Go through the vines to the south and keep going, and the path eventually opens up to show a BFG9000 to the south. (sector 683)
