Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, go into the building and make it all the way to the back until you fall into a lava-filled cave. Here, take the first turn right into the lava to find a chainsaw, an energy cell pack and a partial invisibility sphere. (thing 149)
  2. See secret #1 (thing 151)
  3. Continue on the lava path, and once you see land again go to the right, and press on the wall that looks slightly different to reveal five health bonuses and a megaarmor. (sector 573)
  4. See secret #3 (thing 333)
  5. See secret #3 (thing 334)
  6. See secret #3 (thing 335)
  7. See secret #3 (thing 336)
  8. See secret #3 (thing 337)
  9. See secret #3 (thing 338)
  10. Exit the secret and keep following the path to the right, until you reach a larger section of the cave. Here you can see three stone blocks in the distance, with ammo sitting on top of them. Immediately before it there is a small lava pool with a mancubus on it. Behind it lies a small corridor where you can find a radiation shield and a berserk pack. (thing 349)
  11. See secret #10 (thing 405)
  12. After unlocking the red doors in the initial courtyard, go where the northwestern door used to be and you will notice a wall that looks less red than the others to the right side. Press it to obtain a computer area map and an energy cell pack. (thing 430)
  13. See secret #11 (thing 431)
  14. In the room with all the columns, one of them to the east, third one from the top, has a switch to its right side. Press it to reveal a soulsphere which may be obtained by going through the red doors in the courtyard. (thing 101)
  15. Picking up the soulsphere will unleash many lost souls from the nearby pillars. Upon killing them, nearby bars holding the unmaker will be opened. (thing 291)
  16. Unobtainable, see below (thing 406)
  17. Unobtainable, see below (thing 407)

Secret exit: After getting past the fake exit trap with the Hell knights, you will see a lift with a switch to go to the exit teleporter. Take it but instead of going through the teleporter, make your way back to the bridge, which will cause pain elementals to spawn. From here you will see that a teleporter has opened to your left, in the river of magma. Enter it to be taken to MAP30: The Beyond.


Things 406 and 407 are flagged to count as secrets upon being picked up, but because they are decorations and not items, it is impossible to do so. Thus it is impossible to obtain 100% secrets on this map.
