Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the northernmost room with the prison cells, press on the northwest wall to find a BFG9000 and an energy cell pack. (sector 119)
  2. Enter the blood pit just east of where the yellow key is and go through the wall on the northwest side to find a hidden teleporter. This takes you to the rocks outside of the caged area near where the blue key is. The rocks just below where you are hold a megaarmor, a soul sphere, two boxes of rockets, and an energy cell pack. (sector 311)


Two cacodemons are stuck inside each other inside one of the pillars. They can still be taken out with careful aiming using the rocket launcher, while standing on the lava (make sure to grab the radiation suit first) in a certain spot for the autoaim to work. Additionally, four mancubi will never teleport into the map, preventing achieving 100% kills (except with arch-vile resurrections).
