Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Press on the pentagram behind the blue key to find armor bonuses, a health bonus, a medikit, and shotgun shells. (sector 9)
  2. Inside Secret #4, go towards the fence and face southeast. Shoot the screen, which will open a wall of cacodemons to the northeast and another soul sphere near the screen itself. Go back down there to pick up the soul sphere. Note that the secret sector itself is too small to register. (sector 28)
  3. Use the lift east of where the red key is located, then go towards the fence to the north. Face northeast and shoot the silver screen here. An arch-vile appears next to you. Head for the northeast corner of this area and use the lift to go down below the screen. Two imps guard shotgun shells and a soul sphere down here. (sector 59)
  4. At the north end of the map, head south into the red area, then cross the bridge and flip the switch. The way east will be open. Go up the steps all the way to the room with rockets and a soul sphere. (sector 70)
  5. At the north end of the map, head south into the red area, then drop into the nearest lava pit and use the teleporter to reach the secret maze section with numerous monsters and pickups. (sector 130)


Only 80% secrets is possible on this map due to the Secret #2 being too small to step on.
