Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Look towards the stack of crates to your left at the starting point. There is a switch hidden behind these crates, which can be pressed at the north end. Pressing this switch lowers a rocket launcher. (sector 48)
  2. At the western end of the level, enter the inner area with the switch that reveals the super shotgun, and use the wall just to the south of the switch that looks slightly misaligned. The switch here opens the side compartments. (sector 99)
  3. At the eastern end of the level, press on the switch overlooking the lava, then go back to the hallway before. At the south end will be a new switch, which opens up a slightly open door to the north. The room beyond that door contains a green armor, stimpacks, and energy cells. (sector 594)
  4. As you continue to backtrack after pressing the switch overlooking the lava, a compartment with cacodemons (and pain elementals on higher skill levels) will be revealed. There is a switch on the west wall of this compartment that you can shoot. Shoot it and return to the lava room, heading straight east into a secret room with the yellow key, a box of ammo, and a medikit. (sector 736)
  5. On your way to lowering the blue key, you will come to a hallway that will reveal an arachnotron (two demons on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) in a bigger room. In this hallway, find the section of wall with three green terminals and a red terminal in between. Press on the red terminal to reveal a compartment a bit further in the hallway which contains a computer area map. (sector 755)
  6. Once you have the yellow key from Secret #4 and the other two keys, go to the intersection north of the main hub and turn right, using the yellow key to claim a BFG9000. (sector 772)
