Other points of interest[edit]


  1. If you had found the detonator switch in Secret #3, go outside to where the large tower crane is, and go through the cave to the left of the crane. Eventually you will find a pool with a megaarmor inside. (sector 57)
  2. In the big room on the left side of the map, take the lift up to the tower in the center of the room, then look towards the broken glass at the southeast end. Jump out of this window towards the red pipe. If you land it well enough, you can grab a megaarmor. (sector 270)
  3. After detonating the rock wall in the northwestern part of the map, move behind the rock column on the left side and press on the southwest wall to lower it. This small cave has another detonator switch, which will detonate a side of the wall outside near the large crane which leads to Secret #1. (sector 295)
  4. Walk onto the vent just southwest of where the large tower crane is and go along the south side of it. You can see a translucent part of the rock wall as you do. Go through this translucent piece of wall to find a rocket launcher and a box of rockets. (sector 542)
  5. Go into the nukage pool at the eastern part of the map (it helps to get the radiation suit from Secret #6 first) and go to the far end to find a soul sphere. (sector 958)
  6. In the southeast part of the map with the two switches, there is a clearing in the trees to the northwest. Shoot the brown wall at this clearing to find a radiation suit. (sector 960)
  7. The switch that allows you to access the freight room where the normal exit also blows up a wall above you. Go back to the large tower crane and ride it up, then jump back across to the broken wall, where you will see a new opening to the north. Jump down here and you will be able to access the secret level. (sector 1008)
