Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head north from the start and attempt to climb the steps you see. When you touch the first step, a lift lowers to the south, revealing a BFG9000 and an energy cell pack. (sector 75)
  2. In the damaging moat with the bridge leading to the blue door, go to the southeast corner and fall down the bloodfall to reach a secret area with health bonuses and an invulnerability. (sector 237)
  3. In the southwesternmost room, open the wall in the northwest corner to find two medikits and a megaarmor. You have to open this wall from the side that does not have a crack on it. (sector 267)
  4. In the room past the blue door is a portal. Enter this portal from the right side to reach a secret area with armor bonuses and an energy cell pack. (sector 478)
