Other points of interest[edit]


  1. A frayed piece of wire exists just before the dilapidated building at the east end of the map. Find and press use on the frayed section of this wire to lower the rock for a secret shotgun, shotgun shells, and a stimpack. (sector 106)


The player 2, 3 and 4 starts (Things 7, 8 and 9) and all four deathmatch starts (170 through 173) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, but because of special handling in the engine, they function normally in the level.
