Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the room where Secret #3 is, take the door to the west and climb up all the steps to the bars, which will lower. Now go north until you reach the blood, then head west and then south. Drop down here and go past the teleporter. Turn right when you can to find a soul sphere. (sector 1900)
  2. Drop into the blood pit at the eastern part of the map and go north to find lots of ammo and two stimpacks. (sector 2055)
  3. Open the red door to spot a BFG9000 on a tall pillar. Drop down and head to the right side, where you can find a skull switch tucked in a marble column. Press it to lower the BFG9000 pillar. (sector 2257)
  4. At the northernmost room, go to the upper level and head for the southeast ledge overlooking the room. Go through the wall where the dead baron of Hell is hanging to find a soul sphere. (sector 2282)
