  2. At the start, get behind the terminal straight ahead and press on the left side of it to open an alcove containing a backpack and ammo clips. (sector 39)
  3. From Secret #4, take the lift up and go west, then north. Jump from the broken vent cover to the ledge above the steps, stopping your momentum so you stay on the ledge. From there, jump to the railing on the left, above the seat. Then from there, jump to the next open vent cover, entering this vent to reach a megasphere. (sector 230)
  4. Enter the men's restroom and enter the furthest stall. Open the wall above the toilet to reach the vents. (sector 235)
