Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the blood pit to the west of the blue key room, go north to reach a soul sphere, a box of rockets, and a box of ammo. (sector 977)
  2. When you get on the first big lift, look to the southwest and spot an eye switch. As it rises or lowers, shoot this eye switch, then ride the lift back up. Head south, back to the small room just past the cross, then turn to the east and enter the teleporter. This will take you to a room which is a homage to E2M1's plasma gun room. (sector 1181)
  3. In the red key area, go to the outer room and go onto the hexagonal red steps at the north side. Jump to the gray ledge and go through the vines into the small alcove. Press the switch in the alcove, then leave the outer room to the east and go into the teleporter, which takes you to an E2M4 homage room where you can pick up a soul sphere. (sector 1478)
  4. After the big crate lowers and reveals the cyberdemon, go around the crates behind him and find a switch. This switch briefly lowers a wall near the exit of the E2M2-like area, where you can find an energy cell pack and a plasma gun. A hidden switch behind the column allows you to get six rockets. (sector 1607)
