Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you reach the large blocks with skulls on them, go through the hole to the south and press the gargoyle switch to reach the next area. Head south down the steps until you reach the light in the corner. Step into it, then go back up the steps and back the way you came. A new corridor has opened, enter it. As you go along, a lift will lower. Quickly open the door at the end and get the super shotgun you see. (sector 192)
  2. In the room with the red cross on the floor, the gargoyle switch in the middle triggers the side rooms to the north and south. Enter the north room and use the east wall to find a switch, which will reveal another gargoyle switch inside of the column where the previous gargoyle switch was. This particular switch opens the west area, which counts as a secret. A plasma gun along with several monsters and supplies lie within. (sector 219)
  3. Once you open up the door to the south of the arena with lights, you will find you have four options to take. Take the first option on your left, which is the right hallway leading south on the map, and just before the first bend, there is a wall that can be opened on the south wall. This leads to a ledge that drops when you stand on it. The alcove to the north holds an energy cell pack. (sector 428)
