Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Approach the switch at the northeast of the round sector and open the wall east of that switch to find a different switch. Flip it and quickly run all the way west until you can head south to a chainsaw. (sector 81)
  2. When you get to the switch northeast of the round sector, head all the way back to the steps at the west end and into the north alcove with a demon. Lower the west wall there and you will find a computer area map. (sector 113)
  3. When you get to the switch northeast of the round sector, head all the way back to the steps at the west and enter the north alcove with imps. Lower the east wall in that compartment to find more imps, a medikit, and a green armor. (sector 114)
  4. Head into the hall west of the round sector and head to the north side of the middle column. Open it there and use the switch, then head south of the column and on this edge, go west to a radiation suit. (sector 143)
  5. At the northwest end, take the lift at the east side up and look out the window. Shoot a switch in the distance to the east. Head back west and southwest, into a compartment with demons and partial invisibility. (sector 148)
  6. In the central hall, approach the round sector from the west side and two compartments to the west will open up. Enter the bigger one and open the green wall to the south to get a backpack. (sector 193)
