Other points of interest[edit]



  1. In the temple area with the soul sphere, open the door to the right, then head left and use the switch. Quickly head through the door and into the alcove with the blue key before it closes (this is the secret). Once you do this, you can use the nearby blue switch to get the soul sphere. (sector 802)


  • Jumping on the southern box in the starting area, through its western side (line 1358), opens a teleporter on the same platform as the soul sphere in the previous secret, leading to a secret message and a BFG. Going parallel to the wall is the easiest way to do it.
