Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the grass courtyard with the blood river, press on the pole with the green torch in the middle of the blood to open the wall at the mouth of the river. A backpack is here. (sector 239)
  2. Once you have the blue key, go back to the blue door, which is in the left alleyway at the starting point up the steps. In the hallway that follows, one of the lights is randomly flickering. Press on it, then quickly exit the building via the same blue door and descend the steps. Run quickly into the opening to get a soul sphere. (sector 867)
  3. At the start, head into the right alleyway and up the steps to the door. Take the door straight ahead to find a single switch. After using it, quickly run to the stairs to the southwest, then flip the switch in this room (this is the actual secret). This switch raises a block allowing you to jump to the building to the south. Follow this path around to get a berserk pack and a shotgun. (sector 1056)
  4. When you get past the door to the north of the red door from the alleyway, you will be in a large room with staircases, and a plasma gun is behind a cage in the southeast. To get it, first use the switch at the south end of the room to open the way north, then go right at the fork there to the brightly lit room. Go towards the health bonuses, then return back to the big room. The Hell knights from before will teleport, and you will also be able to grab the plasma gun. (sector 1114)
