Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the computer room at the northeast end of the map, open the west wall with a candle in front of it to find a chainsaw, a stimpack, health bonuses, armor bonuses, a box of ammo, and partial invisibility. (sector 109)
  2. Just north of the wall with the candle in front of it, press on the light fixture to find a switch. Flipping it lowers the central computer block that holds a light amplification visor, a health bonus, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 47)
  3. At the northwest maze, get to the north end, then go south through the bright hallway. You will hear a lift lower. Head south, then west and take the first path south. Get the megaarmor to the right. (sector 175)
  4. Open the wall south of the yellow key to get a computer area map. (sector 108)
  5. Approaching the yellow key opens up a switch in the previous room, which is just north of the lift leading to the yellow key. Flipping this switch lowers the northwest wall. Ride that wall up, then open the north wall to reach some steps with several supplies, including partial invisibility at the northwest. (sector 137)
  6. In the steps accessed from the previous secret, head down the steps on the east side to a corpse, a rocket, a stimpack, and a box of shotgun shells. Just before this corpse, press on the section of wall that does not have slime on it to find a box of ammo, a rocket, and a rocket launcher. (sector 150)
  7. In the southeast area, ride the lift up and open the west wall for a rocket launcher, a box of ammo, a green armor, and a box of rockets. (sector 170)
  8. In the southeast area, ride the lift up and flip the switch. Back outside, step on the teleporter that appears to get a soul sphere. (sector 45)
