The exit in this map is in the middle, and the way to open the exit involves the switch to the north. However, you need to press two more switches to reach that switch. While doing so, make sure to gather supplies as this will be a very tough level with enemies all around and some teleporting into the main area.

To get the switch on the left side of the northern switch, take the path on the left and take a right at the first fork. Flip the switch and ride the lift up, going around until you find a lever switch, which lowers a lift with a partial invisibility. Take it up to a teleporter and find the switch, which lowers a few blocks of imps.

The other switch is on the right side of the map. Take the path on the right and head north into a circular room. Kill the enemies here as you find the lifts that lower. These take you up to the teleporter in the middle, which takes you straight to the switch.

Once you press both switches, jump down into the room with lots of supplies and flip the switch here. Loads of enemies will be revealed upon pressing it. Before you can exit though, go to the southern part of the map and hit the switch there to lower the bars to the exit pillar.

Other points of interest[edit]

To the southwest of the main area is a candle in front of a rock wall. You can go through this wall to retrieve a soul sphere, a chaingun, some health bonuses, and some ammo.

To get the megasphere, head up the lift as if you were going towards the left switch, but turn right where there is a medikit and boxes of ammo if you have not taken them before. You can see the megasphere to your south, and between the two fences, move through the fence on the right side to jump down to the megasphere.


There are no official secrets in this level.
