E4M6 Secrets




East of the starting area is a tower with an acid moat around it. To the north and south are a series of small niches. On the north side, the second niche from the east has a hidden passage behind it; just walk through the back wall. There you'll find some goodies (#1) including a plasma rifle.


Once you drop into the moat and enter the castle, you'll find a small outcropping to the south with a radiation suit and a red torch. The south wall has a secret door here (#2) which leads to a small room with a blur artifact. The northwest wall of this room has a lift which leads to a supercharger.


Once you drop into the moat and enter the castle, you'll find a small outcropping to the north with a radiation suit and a red torch. The north wall has a secret door here which leads to a series of passages. One passage leads to some boxes of rockets, and a ledge which lets you drop into the slime. Another passage leads to a baron of hell, and a switch which will lower the yellow key. A third passage (#3) leads to a lava pit with some cacodemons and a radiation suit.

It may make more sense to reach this secret another way. To do this, get to the yellow key; notice that there are a series of windows surrounding it with gratings covering them. You can walk through the grating on the far right, allowing you to drop into the slime. There's a radiation suit just to the south of you. The other side of the pit has a secret door to secret #3 flanked by glowing skull platforms.


When you first drop into the slime pit, you should go to the tower near the center of the pit. Lower the lift on the west side of the tower, go up the lift and take the teleporter. This will allow you to get the blue key. Then take the north side of the teleporter. This will allow you to get the yellow key and another radiation suit. Then take the east side. This will allow you to get the red key.

Once you hit the switch behind the red door, and take the teleporter back out of the lava pit, you will be able to walk through the window to the south to get a BFG which is on a ledge. There is also a teleporter there, but don't take it yet, unless you want to face the cyberdemon at close range. Instead, get a radiation suit if possible (there are two of them in the lava pit with the red door) and walk over to the southwest ledge, where you originally started. In the south wall you will find a passage leading south to a ledge over an area with some monsters. Jump down off the ledge and kill the monsters. Then get the invulnerability artifact and take the passage north into the lava pit. Now run north to the tower and take the south lift up to the teleporter. This will take you to where the cyberdemon is. If you're still invulnerable, you can easily take him out with a BFG.
