Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head directly southeast from the rocket launcher and drop onto the gray ledge below. Follow it northeast to get a berserk pack. (sector 523)
  2. From the previous secret, you can spot an adorned skull to the southeast. Continue to hug the ledge to reach this skull and use it. A megasphere (supercharge on Ultra-Violence) will teleport into the blood pit. Collect it to get the secret. (sector 3266)
  3. Head into the blood to the north of the yellow key and look through the fence towards the open building. Shoot at the monitor with the skull on it to reveal a switch next to you. Quickly press it before it disappears to teleport into the monitor's building, where you can get a BFG9000 and two energy cell packs, along with a computer area map if you are playing on Hurt Me Plenty or higher. (sector 2608)
  4. Press both switches on the east side of the map to raise the red steps, then climb the first set of steps. Begin to climb the second set, but turn back towards the blue door and shoot at the face to the left of the door. This will lower the door leading outside of the fence. Descend the first set of steps, then hug the wall to the left of the second set. Go along this ledge as it goes north, then get onto the wooden floor. Behind the tower is a soul sphere, an energy cell pack, and a box of rockets. (sector 3180)
  5. In the area outside the fence mentioned in secret #4, head east to the teleporter to reach the tower. You can find a plasma gun and energy cells here. (sector 2152)
  6. When you press the switch on the tower to the east of the rocket launcher, the wooden poles leading to the southern part of the map will rise up. Get on them and go all the way south, but veer off to the southwest side towards the hanging body. You should land on a ledge. Go along this ledge to the platform containing energy cell packs. (sector 334)
  7. Head all the way across the wooden poles mentioned in the previous secret. On the other side, turn to the northeast and head in this direction, going towards the pillar with the invulnerability. To get this secret, you need to find the skull marking with a red hole in it and shoot the red hole. This will lower the pillar allowing you to reach the invulnerability. (sector 2591)
