Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you get the yellow key, go to the yellow door at the north end, then head east and into the north alcove. Use the monitor that says UAC SHOPPING to reveal a teleporter to the east, leading to a plasma gun. (sector 153)
  2. Get to the southeast ledge to find either boxes of rockets and a rocket launcher or a soul sphere depending on your skill level. This opens the closet nearby. Lower the south wall to get either a soul sphere or a megasphere depending on your skill level. (sector 669)
