Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you re-enter the starting room, the left side will open up. Before going there, shoot the eye switch where the megasphere is to lower it. Attempt to get it to teleport to a Hellish area. To the northeast is a rocket launcher and rockets. Note that this secret will not be accessible if you teleport to the Hellish area before shooting the eye switch, as the teleport line works only once. If you attempt to use the eye switch where the rocket launcher and rockets are (when they are not lowered), you will be instantly killed. (sector 3842)


The following multiplayer-only Things have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they do not actually appear in the level: one each of chainsaw (Thing 313), shotgun (312), super shotgun (309), chaingun (310), rocket launcher (311), plasma gun (314), BFG9000 (316), and berserk (315); as well as two short techno floor lamps (301 and 302).
