Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the first red door at the southern part of the map, head all the way up into the next big room with another red door. Press on the stone wall to the right of that red door to find a passage leading up. You will find a rocket launcher, shotgun shells, health bonuses, and a switch to open Secret #2. (sector 468)
  2. Use the switch inside Secret #1, then drop back down into the big room. The northeast wall will lower revealing a berserk pack. (sector 465)
  3. Head north from the big room mentioned earlier and into the stone area above. There are several faces on the walls in the corner here. Head towards the southwest face and shoot at it, which will reveal a switch in the metal column to the east. Use this switch to open the north wall, where you can go left for a megaarmor. (sector 977)
  4. Head back to the big room, then west and then north up the steps. As you go up these steps, notice the blood mark you come to. A section of the wall to the west is green. Use this section to open up a wall to the north. Follow this passage up to reach armor bonuses, health bonuses, shotgun shells, ammo clips, and a chainsaw. (sector 1028)
  5. From the top of the steps mentioned above, enter the room to the west. Find the cage with an arch-vile (Hell knight on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) and shoot at the lion switch in this cage. A skull switch will be revealed in the northwest corner. Press it to open a passage behind the switch leading to ammo clips, a box of shotgun shells, and a soul sphere. (sector 496)
  6. The same switch mentioned in Secret #5 opens a room to the south with an arachnotron (demon on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) guarding armor bonuses, shotgun shells, and ammo clips. (sector 1093)
