Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the south room, use the northeast switch to lower a block in the middle and you can head to the southwest corner which has a soul sphere. (sector 283)
  2. In the same room, use the other switch and quickly get on the block as it rises, which lets you get the box of rockets at the top. (sector 278)
  3. In the long hall at the south end, open the middle door going north. Here, find a switch to the left and use it, then go down the lift to the north to get a megaarmor. (sector 175)
  4. In the small room with stacks of crates, use the southeast crate to lower it, then enter the vent to get rockets and ammo clips. (sector 730)
  5. At the northeast end, climb the wooden steps and enter the teleporter. Turn around and open the door to get health bonuses and a computer area map. (sector 770)
