Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the yellow key room, the plain brown wall on the west side can be opened, which has a teleporter to the caged area behind the yellow key room. You can find a soul sphere, ammo clips, and shotgun shells here. (sector 102)
  2. In the octagonal hallways, find the blinking light at the southern end. When you do, press on the wall opposite of where the lamp is to open it, revealing a light amplification visor. (sector 208)
  3. On the long walkway overlooking the red key area, run to the northwest end and open the wall just above the last imp window to find a megaarmor. (sector 485)
  4. Open the blue door and enter the exit room. Use the switch at the end to lower the Hell knights, then enter the teleporter in the southeastern alcove. You will be transported to a higher ledge in the area with the rocky steps, where you can find a megasphere. (sector 770)
  5. From the top of the lift just west of the platforms above the nukage, look west for two panels with skulls on them. Shoot the right one, then drop down and go straight north through the passage. The northwest corner will be open, containing a megasphere. (sector 1009)
