Other points of interest[edit]


  1. On the brown bridge near the southwest end of the map, fall into the nukage on the east side and open the recessed wall. Take the lift to get a berserk pack and two boxes of rockets. (sector 380)
  2. In the room just west of the starting room, flip the red switch to open the west door. Flip the switch there to lower the lift you are on, and make note of the southwest area which has bars blocking it. Once the lift reaches the bottom, flip the switch there, then return to the room west of the starting room. You will have to jump to that southwest area, which no longer has bars blocking it. You will find a megaarmor and energy cell packs there. (sector 664)
  3. At the southeast end of the map, head towards the blue steps and head northwest to an alcove with a backpack. This lowers a wall with a demon. When this happens, quickly run south of the blue steps and west towards a lowered block. Ride it up, then jump northeast and go through the blue wall to collect a soul sphere. (sector 770)
  4. Once you get the red key, return to the area with two lifts and take the south one up. At the top, use the terminal in the southeast corner to open the west wall. Use the lift, grab the soul sphere, and flip the switch. Head north into the small room you saw through the window to pick up a BFG9000 and an energy cell pack. (sector 938)
  5. In the northernmost room, use the right switch to lower the nearby lift, then the switch to the left of that lift to lower the wall blocking the exit. Quickly take the first lift up and go towards where the light wall has lowered, and ride that wall up. Open the vent to the west to get stimpacks, boxes of rockets, a box of shotgun shells, and a radiation suit. (sector 1049)
  6. Drop from Secret #5 back to the big room and a wall to the south with revenants (plus an arch-vile on Hurt Me Plenty or higher) will open up. Past them, you can find a megasphere. (sector 1159)
