Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the marble halls at the west end, approach the switch and enter the last compartment that opens just before the switch. Use the wall that is pouring blood and take the lift up to a plasma gun and a medikit. (sector 450)
  2. Now use the switch and enter the compartment directly east of the switch which opens. Inside, use the switch here, then head back north and through the door to the west before it closes. Keep heading up and you will eventually reach a soul sphere. (sector 248)
  3. The switch mentioned in the first two secrets opens a door southeast of where it is, leading outside. Out here, use the wall straight ahead with metal ridges around it to access the slime below. There is a platform with rockets and a medikit here. (sector 396)
  4. Head to the east end of this outside area, entering the slime again, then go to the northeast corner. Use the wall here to reach an area with graves, a green armor, a chainsaw, a backpack, a medikit, a box of shotgun shells, a box of ammo, and a box of rockets. (sector 460)
  5. In the northernmost area, go through the faucet to get a backpack. (sector 394)
  6. Get off the ledge southeast of the blue key and a compartment to the west opens up. Use the skull switch here, then enter the room east of the blue key to find a teleporter, which will take you to a room with lots of ammo, a stimpack, and a medikit. (sector 247)
  7. Flip the switch in Secret #6 to open the way out. You will be back at the starting point, with a wall to the east lowering. This leads to a computer area map on a lift. (sector 5)
  8. In the final arena, drop into the lava at the east side and enter the alcove at the north end for a megasphere. (sector 443)
  9. At the south end of the final arena, flip the switch, but instead of going to the lift to the north, head behind the switch to get a BFG9000 before it rises. (sector 120)
