Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you open up the big area, look north from the steps leading down and open the brown wall. Grab the box of shotgun shells and medikit, then open the wall to the southeast to find armor bonuses and a backpack. (sector 456)
  2. In the cargo area with the blue key, go to the crates you would use to reach the blue key, then go past them to the crate with the health bonus. Open the wall here, and at the end of the next passage, open this wall. You will find an energy cell pack and a soul sphere. (sector 460)
  3. South of the steps leading down to the big area are two passages. Take the passage on the right up to the small metallic rooms. Blood is seeping from underneath one of the panels. Open the panel here to find a megaarmor. (sector 850)
  4. At the cave section, as you follow the blood up to the red rock, a compartment opens up nearby with an imp, a mancubus (not on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) and a pain elemental (not on Hurt Me Plenty). In this compartment, go through the bloodfall to find energy cell packs and a BFG9000. Be careful, as a spider mastermind and one or two cyberdemons (depending on the skill level, there will also be an arch-vile on Ultra-Violence or higher as well) will spot you and trying to leave will cause you to teleport back to the big area from before. (sector 1514)
