  1. Head east from the start and open a wall to the north to get armor bonuses. (sector 9)
  2. Use the terminal in the hall just before the red key. After using it, go all the way back to the spiral staircase at the north end and you can get a soul sphere in the middle. (sector 208)
  3. In the area at the center of the south end, take the lift up and notice the arrow pointing to the two windows. Jump there to get stimpacks and a green armor. (sector 242)
  4. The switch in Secret #3 will lower some steps in the hall to the west, at the south end. Take it and outside, head all the way around to get a plasma gun. (sector 311)
