Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The easternmost corner of the large outdoor area hides a medikit, a box of bullets and a box of shotgun shells around a bend. (sector 5)
  2. After clearing out the southeast room, before taking the white teleporter out of it press the wall to its right to reveal a second teleporter to a room with imps and a BFG9000 you can't reach yet. (sector 202)
  3. This secret can only be reached if you are quick enough to go through the teleporter to #2 before the walls in the main room close. As soon as you go through the teleporter, go through the wall with the demon effigy to your left before it closes (if not, go in and out of the teleporter and try again), and you will be able to reach the BFG9000 on the other side of the room. Be careful, because an archvile will appear when you go past the opening. (sector 194)
  4. After collecting the yellow skull key, go back to the northeast building and check around the northwest corner to find a skull switch in a narrow alcove. Press it and quickly run to the west and past the arch to reach the now lowered platform with the red torches and collect a berserk pack. (sector 46)
  5. In the northwest building, after getting ambushed by the chaingunner press the gargoyle switch on the now opened eastern side to lower the wall further south. Quickly run up to it to reach a room with a box of shotgun cells, a box of rockets and a bulk cell. Watch out for the cyberdemon when you come back out! (sector 143)
