Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head west at the start until you get to the third barrel. Shoot it and open the wall nearby to find a berserk pack. (sector 213)
  2. In the waterway south of the main hallway, fall at the southeast corner and press the wall there to lower a lift. Take it down, but do not go any further. Wait until the lift rises and press the switch there, lowering another lift near the teleporter. Follow this long lift to the north to get a megasphere. (sector 201)
  3. In the brown hallway at the east end, enter the central area and press on a wall to the right of the rocket launcher to find a medikit and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 432)
  4. At the southeast end with the pipes and crates, open the southeast door, then shoot the switch to the left. Get out and enter the other door here, then go to the central room via the back door to get two medikits. (sector 470)
  5. In the red key room, press the switch in the northwest corner, then enter the compartment that opens nearby with the lava. Go through the northwest wall to find a soul sphere and a radiation suit. (sector 399)
  6. In Secret #5, open the wall with brown vines and use the switch. Return to the red key room and go through the newly opened passage at the northeast end. Flip the switch out here to lower the BFG9000 outside. (sector 394)
