Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, find the section of rock wall that looks different than the rest and use it. You will lower the wooden wall here. Go through the rock wall to the blood channel collecting the box of ammo and health bonuses as you do. (sector 184)
  2. From Secret #1, head north to the rocket launcher, then drop down to the north to get a megasphere. (sector 371)
  3. From the same rocket launcher ledge mentioned above, drop east and onto the teleporter to warp to a cage. Enter the bloodfall to get an invulnerability. (sector 311)
  4. Enter the room with the four crosses. Here, step onto the one that is different than the rest, lowering the compartments. Enter the northwest compartment, then make an angled jump northeast, out the window and towards the teleporter below. If you do it right, you will be transported to a room with energy cells, medikits, and a plasma gun. (sector 31)
  5. On the cross-shaped walkway at the north end of the map, find the break in the walkway and jump to the rock west of it. If you land there, go around to get a medikit and a soul sphere. (sector 345)
  6. From the previous secret, drop to the teleporter to the west to warp above the cross-shaped walkway. Jump to the west, grabbing medikits, energy cell packs, and the BFG9000. (sector 49)
  7. At the blood-filled region at the southeastern end of the map, go to where the blue key is, then head west through the bloodfall, finding a secret area with a medikit and a computer area map. Going up the stairs nets you a chainsaw and armor bonuses. (sector 205)
  8. A switch in the southern rocky part of the map is high up on a wall. You can shoot it from a number of locations, for example Secret #4. Once you do so, return to Secret #7 and find a teleporter, which will take you to a megasphere. (sector 257)
