Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After dealing with the teleporting imps in the barricaded area, shoot the switch and approach it for another switch to appear, which will open the door near the barricade. A fork is immediately after the door. Turn right and go up the steps a bit, then press on a wall to the left to find a teleporter. This teleporter will take you on top of a megaarmor, and you can also telefrag a chaingunner (shotgun guy on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) if you have not killed it already. (sector 492)
  2. Open up the blue key area and find a black wall in the southwest corner you can open. Descend all the way down the rocks to get energy cells and a plasma gun. Exiting this area reveals a baron of Hell to your left along with another energy cell. (sector 700)
  3. At the eastern hallway with the window overlooking downtown, there are two doors at the north end. Take the right one and use the switch in this room. There will be another switch here, but ignore it and press on the southern wall in this compartment. This passage contains lost souls and armor bonuses, and when you enter the next room, another compartment opens. Inside is a soul sphere. (sector 790)
  4. Open the red door at the top of the large slime pit, but do not enter the teleporter. Press on the faceted wall on the left side to reach the window where the chaingunners were. There is a light amplification visor and a computer area map. (sector 962)
