  1. When you take the first teleporter, there is a hidden teleporter (sector 194) behind you that goes on the other side of the river.
  2. When you have lowered the trench before the blue key door and grabbed the blue key, on the other side of the trench, on its left there is a hidden place (sector 193) with two soulspheres.
  3. On the left of the bone-shaped grey building, there is a red switch that opens an ammo cache (sector 190) just behind the start.

Routes and tricks[edit]

  1. In the ship, instead of hitting the switch that turns the light out, you can hit it directly: it is in the left part (the one without the rocket launcher), between two shotguns.
  2. When you grab the blue key, instead of letting the monsters spread everywhere, return in the ship to lower again the trench.
  3. There is a spectre in the opened grave in the catacomb, beware its floor hurts.
