Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the building north of the fountain where Secret #2 is, then down a lift and through either of the doors to the north hallway. Head around the crate to the east and use the wall with the cross on it for a hidden corridor with an energy cell pack, a medikit, and a plasma gun inside. (sector 57)
  2. To get the blur artifact from the fountain, you need to flip the switch on the building to the south of it. Use the teleporter inside the building to the southeast of that building to reach it. (sector 88)
  3. At the eastern area, enter the southernmost building and climb the steps to the top. At the window where the Hell knight is, jump to the soul sphere pillar to the south. Make sure you get this secret before using the switch beyond the nearby yellow door, as the steps will lower and you will not be able to get the secret otherwise. (sector 119)
  4. In the easternmost water room, use the wall opposite of where the plasma gun is to lower it and the surrounding walls. The wall you directly lowered has a cacodemon guarding an energy cell pack and a soul sphere. (sector 168)
  5. Head north from Secret #2 and use the lift down. You need to jump to the platform to the northwest with the energy cell pack, and can do it while the lift is in motion going up or down. (sector 271)
  6. Enter the crate room where the exit is, then touch the slightly open door with the health bonus. A nearby crate will lower. Step on it to rise up, then collect the box of rockets and the crate ahead of you will also lower, into the adjacent room. Use the switch you see across from you, and you will notice that the slightly open door is open all the way. Go through it back to the previous room, then attempt to leave to the west. You will hear a lift lower. Quickly head back and to the other room, then to the west side where a crate has lowered. Use the wall behind this crate to lower another lift, then ride it to the top and jump west to reach a box of rockets and a berserk pack. (sector 286)
  7. At the eastern area, enter the northernmost building (using the switch at the blur artifact platform, which is the secret, to lower the lift, as well as having used the blue switch at the southwestern building already). Use the wall in the southeast corner to drop onto the platform with the blur artifact. (sector 340)
