Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, use either bookshelf here to lower them both to get an armor and a berserk pack. (sector 92)
  2. At the dockside area where the blue key is, a switch is in the north end of the area. Go around this switch and press its backside, then go to the blue key bridge and then southeast into the door. The bars to the soul sphere should be gone, allowing you to access it. (sector 364)
  3. After collecting the yellow key, return to Secret #2 and the bars to the megasphere should be gone. (sector 366)
  4. In the hall west of the yellow key, one of the walls here is dirtier than the rest. Use it to lower it for boxes of rockets. (sector 409)
  5. At the hall with the switch that reveals access to the blue key, go north to the dead end and it will lower as a lift. Down here, you can collect a BFG9000, energy cell packs, and a medikit. (sector 540)
  6. In the eastern part of the map near a bridge, find three boxes of rockets south of the rocket launcher room. From here, examine the wall to the south for a lift down. Go across to the next lift that lowered, and ride it up. You will find a plasma gun, megaarmor, and some energy cells. (sector 698)
  7. Next to Secret #9, go across the bridge to find some energy cell packs. (sector 802)
  8. In Secret #3, open the wall ahead for an invulnerability. (sector 1126)
  9. In the eastern part of the map, enter the room in the middle of this area that had chaingunners in it. Use the wall that has tree growth on it to lower it, allowing you to get boxes of rockets. (sector 1132)
