Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southeast area, grabbing the super shotgun releases monsters around you. Near where you picked up the super shotgun, use the wall with the electricity symbol on it for a sewer passage that leads to a spectre and a health bonus. (sector 32)
  2. At the end of Secret #1, use the nukage where the health bonus is and attempt to ride up. You will instead teleport to a room with several soul spheres. (sector 20)
  3. Take the southeast door on the main lift and flip the switch. Approach the next switch and a compartment nearby will open containing an imp and a backpack. There is a hidden switch on the wall just to the right of this compartment. Use it to open the area behind the switch, where you can get a computer area map. (sector 117)
  4. In the area past the east door, when you reach the plasma gun, press on the lights to the north to find health bonuses. (sector 112)
  5. In the area past the northeast door, use either of the satyr faces on the north wall to find an arch-vile and a berserk pack. (sector 115)
  6. In the area past the north door, open the side walls and then use the northwest wall with the hole in it to find a BFG9000. (sector 81)
