Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the blood pit where the blue key is, use the lift to go up, but look south just before it rises. When you spot a lion face, shoot it, then go east and through the new opening where you will find stimpacks, clips, rockets, shells, and a megaarmor. (sector 357)
  2. In the southwesternmost room, approaching the plasma gun reveals alcoves, in which revenants (or shotgun guys on lower skill levels) teleport to in order to attack you. The bottom right one has no blood on the back wall. Open the wall to find two medikits and partial invisibility. (sector 404)
  3. Head around the center and open up the door at the north end of the outdoor area. This place has a lava pit in the center. Jump across to the pentagram and use the hidden switch here, then take either teleporter to the arena with the spider mastermind and cyberdemon. When you reach the arena proper, there should be an open area to the north with ammo, medikits, and a computer area map. (sector 524)
  4. In the outdoor area at the northwest end, head through the skin wall at the southeast corner and open the wall here for rockets, a megasphere, a box of shotgun shells, and a box of ammo. (sector 567)
