Other points of interest[edit]


  1. By approaching the big door in the center of the map, the whole central room opens up. Go to the steps and press the two switches to reveal two more alcoves with monsters in them, both of which count as separate secrets. The northern compartment has a switch to open the final area as well. (sector 52)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 55)
  3. The final area of the map where the exit is counts as a secret. (sector 92)
  4. The bridge going across the water has two openings in the cages. Jump to the southern pool of water and go to the southeast corner quickly (because the water is damaging). You will be able to get a box of ammo and a box of shotgun shells before teleporting back. (sector 109)
  5. Jump to the northern pool of water from the bridge and run to the northwest corner. Along this corridor will be a medikit as you head back to the previous room. (sector 114)
  6. See Secret #4. (sector 117)
