Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.



  1. Enter the central building in the map, the one with the entrance guarded by two arch-viles. At the top of the first set of the steps, look east to spot a box of rockets on a pillar. There is also a switch with an energy cell pack in front of it to the south. You need to reach this switch to access the box of rockets. To do so, from the top of the steps, step onto the ledge that leads to the south wall, then make a well-timed jump to the switch platform. The switch will lower the pillar with the box of rockets. (sector 471)
  2. In the northernmost building, press on the face at the north wall. Then go to the southeast to find an opening outside leading to boxes of rockets, energy cell packs, and a soul sphere. (sector 512)
