Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the corridor which leads to the red key, open the door leading into the lava and walk slowly so that the wall ahead lowers. Turn around and use the skull switch to open the way to an invulnerability. This area counts as two secrets. (sector 295)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 199)
  3. Once you have the red key, use it on the switch at the end of the paths to raise the bars. Take the lift back down to the crusher room, and instead of using the next lift, go outside and to the west. The red bars here will have lowered as well. An arch-vile guards a computer area map here. (sector 286)
  4. Now take the lift you ignored in the previous secret, then open the next door. In this small room, lower the altar to pick up a chainsaw. (sector 134)
  5. From the previous secret, take the next door into the field. Head towards the next switch, then look southwest and try to spot a small green button. If you find it, use it, then run to the lowered altar on the other side of the field for a partial invisibility. (sector 185)
  6. Hop the rocks to the exit area, then use the rocks to the north and go along the path westward. Drop into the lava and enter the cave with spectres. Use the lift to get a megasphere. (sector 214)
