Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the north end of the map west of the exit, use the terminal to open a wall leading outside. You will find health bonuses nearby, as well as armor bonuses and a soul sphere if you go southwest. (sector 55)
  2. East of the entrance to the building, use the recessed wall at the stimpack and ammo clip to get a chainsaw. (sector 99)
  3. Enter the building from the start and turn east. Ride the lift up, turn around, and run to the ledge for the box of bullets. (sector 54)
  4. Enter the building from the start then make a turn right, and ride up the lift, and keep going forward and don't forget to pick up the green armor to the right of you. After that go the opposite way of the green armor and you will wind up in a pit, kill the enemies here then turn right to a wall with flickering lights, press it to open it, when you go into the new room the secret will tag (sector 121), continue up the stairs and press on the computer panel with a planet on it which also has a candle in front of it, when you open it you will be rewarded with shotgun shells and a box of bullets.
