Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the first hall, shoot the Hitler portrait to the east and head that way to a teleporter. This takes you to a cell with ammo, a chainsaw, and a backpack. (sector 77)
  2. In the central hall above the exit elevator, shoot the Hitler portrait across from the north side, then head down and to the northwest steps to a secret area with ammo. (sector 152)
  3. At the west side, head south, then on the northeast bookshelf, find a red button. Pressing it reveals a megaarmor (only on Ultra-Violence or higher) to the south. (sector 204)
  4. At the west side, shoot the Hitler portrait to open a plasma gun nearby. (sector 423)
  5. In the east hall, shoot the Hitler portrait at the northeast end, then enter the field and enter the northwest alcove to get a plasma gun. (sector 895)
  6. By shooting the Hitler portraits in the secrets mentioned above, you can head west of the central hall and south to a megasphere and a switch. This alternates the path of the exit, leading to the secret exit. (sector 932)
  7. In the southeast hall, use the eagle picture to lower the two columns with an energy cell pack and a berserk pack. (sector 957)
