Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head north of the lava entrance, then lower the north wall between the candles. Head north to get field kits and a swat beacon. (sector 1186)
  2. At the lava entrance, head to the west side and use the red button on the south wall. Lower the lift to the left and take it up, then open the west wall to find a Tome of the Forsaken. (sector 1284)
  3. In the large hall at the north end, hug the north wall as you go west and you will eventually get an energy cell pack and a BFG9000. (sector 1606)
  4. At the northwest corner, shoot upwards at the alcoves with gargoyle faces, where there are four Commander Keens behind the walls. After killing all of them, the north door opens. Take the teleporter to be on the higher ledge, then go southwest and open the door here to find four Familiar Summon Scrolls. (sector 1763)
  5. Get past the crushers, then use the switch at the south wall and head west to two pipes. Shoot the gargoyle switch behind the left pipe to open the east wall with medikits and a megaarmor. (sector 1859)
  6. After pressing the switch south of the crushers, go into the southeast alcove in the crushers and use the switch, then quickly run to the alcove north of it to get the red key (note that this switch works only once). After getting the key, run all the way to the north end to find more alcoves to the north. Enter the fourth one from the right and pick up the Jackbomb in the corner. (sector 1722)
  7. After pressing the switch south of the crushers and getting the red key, go into the northwest alcove in the crushers and use the switch, then quickly run to the alcove south of it to get to a red door (note that this switch works only once). This leads to the secret exit. (sector 1568)
  8. Head west of Secret #5 and get the yellow key, then, staying on the ledge, head east and take the teleporter to return to the starting area. Go north and open the yellow door to get armor bonuses, a backpack, energy cell packs, and a Soulreaver. This counts as two secrets. (sector 1813)
  9. See Secret #8. (sector 1618)


Eleven clips (Things 1526 through 1536) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they do not actually appear in the level.
