The final fight at the exit area can be cheesed. Open the blue door, make a step inside, and right after the walls start lowering, rush to the elevator that brought you to this room from the starting area. If you are fast enough, you can reach the elevator before the spiderdemon spawns and blocks your way. Then you can follow to the lava pool behind the blue key ledge to reach the elevator where the backpack was. This way you can approach the final arena from the east; flying enemies can't fly over the railing, so you are safe there. This vantage allows to kill enemies from the distance; or else use the monster infighting for your benefit.
- In the southern part of the map, after opening the first blue door, you can go through and in the platform before jumping back to the lava, one of the walls contains a single patterned tile. Pressing that tile will open a small section to the west (sector 410) containing a plasma rifle and other resources.
- After returning to the beginning area back from the long route containing the blue key, a single patterned tile can be found on the western side of the central platform. Pressing that tile will lower a lavafall (sector 540) in the eastern part of the beginning area, leading to a large section of the map containing, among others, the BFG9000, a megasphere and many energy cell packs.
- At the beginning area of the level, after riding up the elevator which leads to the rocket launcher, turn back towards the beginning area. You should be able to spot in the distance a section of a wall with both a red and a green torch. Shoot between those two torches to open a wall to the west of the rocket launcher area containing a megaarmor (or a megasphere on lower difficulties).
Two archviles sometimes fail to spawn on this map, so it may not be possible to get 100% kills.
