Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the starting area, go to the southwestern wall and lower it for medikits, a battery, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 276)
  2. At the blue key, hug the south wall as you go west to the fence, then hop over to the north and go along the north wall into a cave where you can open a wall at the end to get a soul sphere. (sector 247)
  3. In the wooden hall at the left side of the main building, head to the southwest end and use the wall with the corpse in front of it to find two boxes of ammo. (sector 56)
  4. In the exit room, approach the column with red lights on the floor to lower it and get a soul sphere. (sector 218)


A teleporting monster closet connected to the exit room contains two Hell knights (on HNTR) or two barons of Hell (on HMP and UV) that are supposed to teleport into the exit room. However, it is impossible for sound to propagate into the closet meaning that they cannot wake up, rendering 100% kills impossible.
