Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the dig site entrance, take the southeastern door to a room with a conveyor and some terminals. Look towards the wall on the west side and shoot the terminal in the middle. The bars on the east side of the conveyor will open, allowing you to get a rocket launcher. A wall breaks apart revealing imps once you collect the rocket launcher. (sector 177)
  2. Once you have the red key, open the northern door at the dig site entrance and open the red door. Go into the nukage at the east side and go along the east wall until you fall into a hole. Follow the cave past this hole to a hidden storage room with some energy cells, a plasma gun, and a stimpack. Shoot the vent to return to the starting point. (sector 429)
  3. Once you have the yellow keycard, open the northern door at the dig site entrance and open the yellow door. When you enter the elevator, flip the switch on your right (north) to reach the lower floor. Open the wall straight ahead (east) to find a megaarmor. (sector 716)
  4. At the large, open dig site, go to the southern end of the area where a tree, a dead body, and a bunch of stalagmites are. Shoot the wall that is between these stalagmites (south) to reveal a cave, where a soul sphere is on a platform and another megaarmor is near the waterfall. (sector 787)
