  2. In the large room before the northwest end, head to the block on the west side and use the southwest side of it. Run east and into the teleporter to the north before it closes to get to the higher ledge on the northwest area. You will find a berserk pack, medikits, and a soul sphere. (sector 348)

The player 1-4 starts (Things 95, 235, 236 and 2, respectively) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, but because of special handling in the engine, they function normally in the level.
