Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Open the door straight ahead at the start and take the lift up. Notice the wall on the right is slightly open. Open it for a box of rockets. (sector 200)
  2. In the first courtyard with the blood fountain, climb the steps on the west side, then jump east onto the bench and onto the lowered section of blood on the fountain to teleport to a secret room with a soul sphere. (sector 33)
  3. In the wavy-walled room connecting the courtyards, lower the wall on the west side to obtain a backpack. (sector 480)
  4. On the red-floored platform overlooking the red key courtyard, the bookshelf between the doors can be opened, where you can teleport back into the previous courtyard while collecting health bonuses. (sector 455)
  5. Inside the rocket launcher room accessible from the northwestern yellow door, open the demon wall under the hanging corpse to find a berserk pack. (sector 353)
  6. In the room north of the four-way intersection past the yellow door, approaching the switch causes the rocket launcher platform behind you to lower. (sector 147)
  7. At the blood pit south of the four-way intersection, there is a lift just east of the dropoff point. Take it up and go along the walls, eventually you will move through the walls to a teleporter. (sector 363)
  8. The teleporter in the previous secret takes you to this room with health bonuses, a computer area map, and lots of ammo. (sector 385)
  9. Once you reach the area where you can lower the red key, return to the wavy-walled room connecting the courtyards. Past Secret #3 is a new room with imps and a lost soul guarding a BFG9000. (sector 483)
