Secrets[edit]

  1. Take the rightmost door ahead of you at the start. As the path curves to the right there is a secret door on the left leading to a medikit and a radiation shielding suit. There is also an imp on easy and medium skills. (sector 27)
  2. The north-eastern wall in the room behind #1 (next to the medikit) is a secret door leading to a chaingun and four boxes of bullets. This secret is too narrow to receive credit for. (sector 42)
  3. Carrying further along the path from #1, the wall on the right immediately as you step into the nukage is a secret door leading to a teleporter which takes you to a soul sphere, a partial invisibility, a rocket launcher, two boxes of rockets, and a plasma rifle. (sector 84)
  4. In the north-east is a set of corridors with some boxes of rockets in them. The south-west of this area has a secret door (marked with a misaligned texture) leading to a soul sphere and a partial invisibility. This area can also be reached from the other side by walking through a fake wall from the lava - however, it is the door that counts as the secret. (sector 30)
  5. South-west of the start is a triangular door whose two forks both lead to a hairpin in the south-west. There is a secret lift here which leads to nine medikits, a rocket launcher, five boxes of rockets, and a partial invisibility. However, the trigger for this lift is too far away for this secret to be obtainable. (sector 50)
  6. Towards the end is a large lift which lowers revealing four paths. Take the rightmost path and jump over four gaps. On the left, marked with a misaligned texture, is a secret door leading to a spectre, a soul sphere, and an invisibility. (sector 105)

Bugs[edit]

As there are two secrets which cannot be obtained (see Secrets section above), the maximum secrets percentage on this level is 66%.

As the inaccessible secret corridor contains a partial invisibility, the maximum obtainable items percentage is 90%.
