  1. Head north at the start and northeast to a candle. Lower the wall there to get a box of ammo and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 55)
  2. At the nukage ring, go to the middle and open the east wall at the candle to find a blur artifact. (sector 102)
  3. At the shotgun, lower the south wall and use the switch. Return to the nukage ring and go north to get rockets and a rocket launcher. (sector 108)
  4. At the west hall, when you reach the dead marine, open the west wall to get a soul sphere. (sector 100)
  5. At the south bridge, drop into the nukage to the south and open the southeast wall to collect a radiation suit. (sector 42)
  6. In the hall west of the nukage ring, head north, and you will notice a wall to the south closing. You can either run into the secret room behind it before it closes, or if it does, open a wall at the southwest corner and press the switch to open the wall. Inside this secret room is a chaingun, ammo clips, armor bonuses, health bonuses, and a green armor. (sector 60)
  7. In the northwest area, head to the west wall and open it, then press the switch. Head east and then north to find a room with health and armor bonuses. The three doors here have a computer area map, a berserk pack, and a backpack. (sector 113)
