Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you use the left switch in the northernmost room of the map, go back to the room behind the large red door. The southwest door here is open. Drop down here, but try to time your jump so you land on a small piece of rock on the wall ahead of you. If you do it right, you will be able to snag an invulnerability. (sector 214)
  2. Fall into the blood river where the blue key is located and walk through the northeast bloodfall to find armor bonuses and an energy cell pack. (sector 272)
  3. In the yellow key area with the bloodfalls, press on the ridge on the east side to lower it and fall into the blood to collect partial invisibility and two boxes of rockets. (sector 333)
  4. Just before the cyberdemon room, press the gargoyle switch to open up two alcoves. The one with the megaarmor counts as a secret. (sector 399)
  5. In the library at the northwest end of the map, press on the plain wall at the northwest corner to retrieve a soul sphere. (sector 403)
