Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the northwest building with green torches, then head north and jump down at the north fence. Head west until an arch-vile (shotgun guy on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) appears behind you. Go east, then head north in the darkness and look at the blur artifact. Shoot it to be able to access it. (sector 1368)
  2. Find and kill all four Commander Keens in the map, then head back to the central room at the north end. Head north to the secret area. With the six keys, open each door and collect energy cell packs as well as press switches, which lower invulnerabilities and a megasphere. (sector 3723)
  3. At the exit, head west and shoot the wall which is open on the ceiling to lower it, revealing an invulnerability. (sector 3786)
