Other points of interest[edit]

There is no way to open the compartment with the BFG9000. None of those sectors are tagged, and none of the adjacent linedefs do anything. Presumably it was put in as a red herring.


  1. In the area with the blue door, press on the bookshelf in the northeast corner to open it. Open the blue door and use the switch, then approach the area behind the bookshelf and it will lower. Ride it up and head outside to get a backpack and a berserk pack. (sector 98)
  2. Open the red door at the east end to reveal two monster closets. Enter the one at the north end and press on the tan wall to the east to reach the outside portion with a soul sphere. (sector 162)
  3. In the southernmost room with the switch that switches places, approach the switch on both sides quickly to lower the two south walls. In these two closets, press on the walls that look different and you will open an area to the east, which you will go to. Even though it makes you reappear in the same room, you will find a new switch here. This will lower the wall behind the closets, but the only way to do so is to press the walls inside the closets again before flipping the switch. It's possible, but difficult, to gently approach the side switch from one side so that both closets remain open, and when you do so, press both walls and flip the switch to head outside. Out here, you will find boxes of rockets and a megaarmor. (sector 280)
