Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Get to the south end of the blood pit surrounding the starting point. On the southernmost block, head to the right of it and use the lift that leads up to the top. This lift will also lower another lift to the northeast, which is where you need to run to. Ride it up to get a BFG9000. (sector 340)
  2. Behind the starting point is a blue skull. Use it to open a wall north of the steps where you can get a berserk pack. (sector 427)
