Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the central intersection, head north and use the recessed wall to the east. Take the teleporter to get energy cells, as well as boxes of rockets, and a soul sphere to the east. You can jump to a rocket launcher and head east of there to boxes of ammo. (sector 45)
  2. Open the gate north of the start and climb the steps at the north end. Jump to a crate to the south and lower the taller one to get a blur artifact. (sector 99)
  3. Take the east door at the central intersection, then in this area, make your way to the southwest corner. Open the wall to get a megaarmor. (sector 136)
  4. Head south from the rocket launcher on the ledge and run south so you do not lower with the floor. Head all the way east and then all the way north to an invulnerability. (sector 198)
