Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go east from the blue switch to the two doors. Take the one on the lift and use the lift switch to go down to the next area. Here, run across the silver lift (or stay on it until it rises again), then open the wall in the southeast corner to get a megaarmor, computer area map, and partial invisibility. (sector 508)
  2. Once you flip the switch that reveals the yellow key area, go back to the blue switch at the far north end of the facility to find two monster closets open. Enter the closet on the right and open the brown-stained wall to teleport to the building outside. You will find a plasma gun, energy cells, a megaarmor, and stimpacks out here. (sector 539)
  3. Just north of the lift that leads to the underground area where the blue key is, open the door just before the north bend for a small room containing four rockets. Open the wall at the end of this small room for a secret passage, allowing you to get lots of ammo, a backpack, and a berserk pack. (sector 548)
  4. In the exit area with a cyberdemon (two mancubi on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower), press on either green-stained wall at the north side to reveal a secret area with a soul sphere, a BFG9000, and energy cells. (sector 553)
