Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the set of eight teleporters, take the northeast one on the right set, which has yellow door markings on it. This is the crusher section, and there are two eye switches in front of you. Both switches can be shot to reveal alcoves, allowing you to get a green armor, armor bonuses, stimpacks, and health bonuses. (sector 21)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 44)
  3. In the southwesternmost room with the blood pit, enter the teleporter at the north end of the blood. Take the path southwest back to the room, and on the lava walkway this time, making sure to grab a radiation suit as you approach it. Run all the way to the end of the walkway and jump to the square with the BFG9000, radiation suit, computer area map, megasphere, and energy cell pack. Note that you only have one shot to reach this secret as the walkway cannot be raised again. (sector 132)
  4. At the set of eight teleporters, take the southeast one on the right set, which has blue door markings on it. In the lava room that follows, open the metal wall to the right, and there will be a lift and a red wall with two silver ridges on it. Open that wall to get a soul sphere. (sector 177)
  5. In the southwesternmost room with the blood pit, enter the teleporter at the north end of the blood. Grab the green armor you see and a lift behind you will lower containing a chaingun and ammo clips. (sector 260)
