Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you teleport the first time, head southwest on the slimefall to enter a hole with a megasphere and boxes of rockets. (sector 2733)
  2. At the northwest end, use a switch for a lift and jump northwest to the void. The island with the megaarmor counts as the secret. (sector 2844)
  3. Head southeast from the rocket launcher and approach the candle. The wall will lower leading to energy cells, a BFG9000, and energy cell packs. All of these items will only appear on Ultra-Violence or higher. (sector 2717)
  4. See Secret #3. (sector 2852)
  5. Head to the southwest side of the central building to get boxes of rockets. (sector 2262)
