Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the central hallway, go towards the red door in the middle and use the wall with the small blood pool to find a soul sphere. (sector 102)
  2. In the blue key room, grab the key to release the skinless demons to the north, then enter the area they were in. A wall to the west opens up, so enter it to reach an NFG, a stimpack, and mini-batteries. (sector 176)
  3. In the room with green blocks at the center of the map, head to the northern ledge, where a lift will lower. Get rid of the barrels in front of it and ride it up. Use the switch up here for another lift, then hop over once it rises. Hop to the east to get a computer area map. (sector 337)
  4. At the southeast part of the map, there is an area with a Hell knight or two (depending on your skill level) with a battery, a box of shotgun shells, and a medikit. You can access this area by using the nearby step, then jumping into the window from the step. (sector 223)
  5. At the east end of the map, finish with the columns that you can lower, then head west and into an alcove, where you will drop down to an area that had chaingunners. (sector 298)
  6. At the bridges over water, head to the northwest end and jump to the outer waters, then head into a small corridor and teleport to a platform with medikits and mini-batteries. (sector 358)
