Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the northeast corner of the map, drop down the pit, kill the shotgun zombies and step on the small elevator behind you: when you do, a wall section will open to reveal a megasphere. Jump back onto the upper floor and go into the teleporter in the west corner to collect it. (sector 129)
  2. In the large blood pool to the west, you'll find a wooden partition to the north. Check behind it to the right to find an alcove with a computer area map. (sector 55)
  3. Ignore the exit and drop into the pit behind it, and go around the corner to the west. A hidden teleporter at the end will take you to a room with demons and a blur sphere. (sector 29) You will also find an elevator to the bridge over the lava pool with the soul sphere.
  4. After taking the teleporter at the end of the bridge near #3, go back to the east end of the map and you'll see the rock between the two torches opened to reveal a pit. (sector 75) Drop down to find a group of arachnotrons, a spider mastermind, an invulnerability sphere, two rocket boxes, a box of shotgun shells and a BFG9000.
