Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you enter The Outer Temple, take the door in front of you and head left, to a staircase. When the staircase bends, enter the inner corner and drop into the liquid below to find a backpack. (thing 71)
  2. Enter The Outer Temple, climb the steps, and then cross the bridge. On the south wall in the next area are three emblems on the wall. Shoot the middle one to release bars allowing you to get a green armor. (sector 214)
  3. In the big room on the left side of The Outer Temple, use the steps at the left side and flip the switch at the top to lower the bars at the southeast. Go past them to the next door, but open the wall to the east to get a stimpack and a megaarmor. (sector 2171)
  4. Once you have the blue skull key, open the blue skull door in The Outer Temple and go to the next door. Press on the misaligned wall in the southeast corner to get a berserk pack and box of ammo. (sector 2303)
  5. At the northeast end of The Catacombs, take the steps at the east side up, and you will notice that the inside wall opens up. When this happens, backtrack to the room on the west side and climb the steps to the ledge there to find a berserk pack. (thing 3340)
  6. At the northeast part of The Catacombs, climb the steps all the way to the top, then press on the misaligned wall at the east end to get a soul sphere. (sector 4681)
  7. Just before you get to the Portal of the Inner Sanctum, at the staircase you go on, use the yellow face to the north to find a soul sphere. (thing 5249)
  8. In the inner sanctum area accessible from the portal, make your way north from the big room, then you will see an energy cell pack underneath the steps. To get it, gently go on the small ledge over the lava under the steps to reach the energy cell pack. (thing 5333)
  9. In the inner sanctum area accessible from the portal, make your way north from the big room, then through the west door. Follow the path as it snakes to a set of bars, then look at the west wall. There are two crosses here. Shoot at the right one to open a wall along the path. Quickly enter and collect a megasphere. (sector 8590)
  10. Inside the previous secret, shoot the hieroglyphs on the wall to get partial invisibility. (sector 8585)
  11. In the area of the inner sanctum with the rising and lowering lava, get to the south side where the switch is, which stops the lava. A bit to the left of the switch, open the wall to find a quad damage powerup. (thing 6978)
  12. In the hall with the grated floor just before the red key, shoot at the face at the southernmost end to reveal an alcove at the northwest side, which contains an invulnerability. (thing 5917)
  13. This secret is the super secret that requires five different mini-secrets to reach. The mini-secrets are in order: in The Outer Temple, near the blue door, look north and use the right of two pentagrams, at the west end of The Outer Temple, in a small room with a switch, use the face emanating green light, in the L-shaped hallway at the south end of the Catacombs, look at the northeast corner and use it, the west wall near Secret #5, and in the northernmost area of the courtyard, at the northwest side, use one of the faces. If you manage to get all five, the super secret, which is just outside the boss arena, will be open, leading to a thank you message and a megasphere. (sector 11593)
  14. (thing 102, Map Spot)
  15. (thing 103, Map Spot)
  16. (thing 104, Map Spot)
  17. (thing 105, Map Spot)
