Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the entrance, use the north side of the southeast column, then head north to the berserk pack. (sector 331)
  2. At the main intersection, use the south wall between the tunnels to get a super shotgun. (sector 240)
  3. In the area west of the main intersection, get to the last switch and fall to the right. Follow the dark path to a soul sphere. (sector 286)
  4. Get the red key to lower some walls. Head west and to the south wall, then use the west wall with a red line. This reveals a switch that lowers the plasma gun to the west. (sector 568)
  5. At the easternmost tunnel, use the wall northeast of the switch to find a teleporter taking you to a field with a BFG9000, a megasphere, an invulnerability, and energy cells. (sector 333)
