Secrets[edit]

  1. In the area left of the starting point on the map (there's a stalactite leaking water onto a tiny pond), open the door here into the red rock region. Press on the switch at the base of the torch and quickly climb the steps to the right up to the lowered lift, which takes you to a berserk pack. (sector 89)
  2. At the lava chasm south of the map start, there is a gargoyle switch in the lava on the west side. Use it, but instead of going through where the red bar was blocking a passage by the switch, head northeast, towards a ledge that is lowering, which has a box of shotgun shells and an imp. (sector 55)
  3. Ride the ledge that is Secret #2 up and enter the next room via the grated wall. The north side is another lift, leading down. In the small red room, notice the ledges on the east wall. Time a jump so you land on these ledges, and then maneuver your way north to where a megasphere is. Shoot at the demonic marble face here to raise up a section of rock nearby, which has a BFG9000. (sector 113)
  4. In the red rock area on the west side of the map, a candle denotes a section of wall that hides a secret. To reach it, from the steps leading to it, run up and open the door, then head through the passage as quickly as possible. Go through here to find a rocket launcher and some rockets. (sector 211)
  5. Take the teleporter unlocked by the red key to appear in the southeast part of the map, where a flickering candle sits in front of a marble wall with a Hell noble's face. Press on this wall to briefly lower another wall to the right, leading to a small room with a plasma gun, health and armor bonuses, energy cells, and a soul sphere. (sector 357)
  6. After you finish the puzzle chamber north of secret #5 and free the cacodemon, press the wall with the Hell noble face to get a computer area map. (sector 360)
