Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southwest building, after pressing the switch guarded by the Hell knight to raise the walkway around the toxic pool, walk across it and touch the lit area in front of the elevator to lower it, then quickly run back and to the south to find a lowered white wall, and press the switch in the corner there: it will open a path to a room with health bonus items, cells and a backpack. (sector 280) A teleporter there will take you to the middle of the map, lowering the pillar with the soul sphere and allowing you to collect it.
  2. Past the yellow key door, take the teleporter at the end of the lava pool path and go through the door. Go through the corridor, down the small elevator and clear all monsters in the room, then press the green switch in the southwest corner. When you go back the way you came, you'll see a wall section in the corridor opened to reveal a teleporter back to the yellow key door. Enter it again, and this time you'll see a walkway raised in the room, giving you access to an elevator to the south. Go up to collect a bulk cell. (sector 190)
  3. After reaching #2, go out the yellow key door and around the wall to the north, walk underneath the arch and drop down to where you see the lava pool from earlier. Just beneath the wall is a raised platform with a plasma gun, a backpack and another bulk cell. (sector 29)
  4. In the southeast building, coming in from the small door, a teleporter atop a short staircase will take you to a toxic pool elsewhere in the building. Press the skull switch to rise out of it, drop out the window and enter the small door again. This time you can open the door behind the teleporter, giving you access to a room containing imps, rockets and shotgun shells. (sector 128)
  5. To the north of the map, on top of the brick platform with the mancubus, drop down the dark opening and open the small door with the demon effigy, and press the skull switch to reach the platform with the computer area map. Face the teleporter next to it, then turn around and press the wall in front of you to reveal a second teleporter to a room with barrels, demons, rocket boxes and cells. Be careful, because an arch-vile will appear when you press the switch in this room. (sector 188)
