Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Open the door at the start and head east until you see a pillar with a heart. Use the pillar, then backtrack a bit to find an open room with a box of ammo and a green armor. (sector 37)
  2. In the water area east of the pillar mentioned above, head to the south end, open the door, and press the switch inside. Return to the starting point and you can access the nukage area to the west. Grab a radiation suit and go to the end of this area to get a plasma gun and an energy cell. (sector 180)
  3. In the northern hall with the green floor, open the wall where the shotgun is to get a chainsaw. (sector 170)
  4. In the hall west of the red key, then enter either corridor to the south. Find a switch in this corridor, which will open a wall east of where the red key is. In here, go behind the dark gray wall to the north and go into the lit corner to lower a nearby wall. You will find shotgun shells, armor bonuses, and the yellow key here as well. (sector 218)
  5. With the yellow key from Secret #4, return to the north end of the map and open the yellow door to find a rocket launcher, a box of rockets, a soul sphere, and a teleporter taking you to an area south of Secret #3. (sector 227)
  6. Take the teleporter all the way to the west of where the red key is, then drop into the blood and head southeast. Lower the wall where the health bonuses are, then ride it up. (sector 207)
  7. In Secret #6, go through the wall between the candelabras are to find a stimpack and a backpack. (sector 210)
