Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Outside of the fortress, get to the energy cell and drop into the nukage northwest from there. Open the wall with slime on it to get a plasma gun. (sector 374)
  2. Inside the innermost fortress, climb the steps and head for the southeast corner. Use the switch, then go to the southwest corner to find ammo clips and a backpack. (sector 63)
  3. Open the red door and take the left set of steps. Shoot the satyr face and go through the passage to find a teleporter leading to a megaarmor. (sector 260)


The blue key is not present on Hey Not Too Rough or lower. The key is required to remove the bars blocking the entrance of the fortress, where the switch for the bars is behind blue key doors.
