Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the red door, take the steps southeast and open the door to the outside. Head around the column you see until you reach its northwest side. Press on it to reveal a teleporter, where you can then get a megasphere. (sector 13)
  2. At the red pit where the cyberdemon is, press on the metal wall in the northwest corner, where you can find a soul sphere. (sector 690)
  3. From Secret #4, you will be in a marble hall. Look north through the rocks and shoot at the fire, then go to the opposite end of the hall to find a lion switch. Press it, and the steps to the chainsaw will rise. (sector 842)
  4. As soon as the level starts, quickly turn northwest and run to the red wall, lowering it for a partial invisibility. (sector 890)
