Other points of interest[edit]

Secret exit: Go up the lift to the west of the blue doors, turn left and go through the door. Shoot the wall on the left, press the switch that is revealed, and run down the stairs. Go into the opened passage before it closes (it can be opened repeatedly) and through the teleporter. The secret exit switch is immediately ahead.


  1. Immediately behind the start is a secret lift (marked by a ‘Radiation’ sign), leading to a shotgun (sector 365).
  2. On approaching the teleporter that leads to the small octagonal room, a lift with a green armor will lower behind you briefly. This can be lowered as many times as needed. (sector 166)
  3. The ‘Poison’ sign on the back wall near the aforementioned teleporter is a secret door leading to a plasma gun. (sector 368)
  4. In the south-east corner of the red key room is a secret lift (marked with bullet holes), leading to a room (#4) with 4 shotgun shells and a chainsaw. (sector 338)
  5. In the south-east of the blue key room is a platform containing 1-3 shotgun guys, a stimpack, and three floor lamps, which is accessible via the adjacent stairs. The brown section of wall on this platform is a secret door leading to a radiation suit. (sector 325)
  6. Collecting the blue key opens up two traps containing shotgun guys. Go into the western one, and press the section of wall with the head on it. This opens up a path to a supercharge, behind which is a door which can be opened from the outside by shooting it. (sector 328)
