Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the room with the chaingun, flip the switch to open the two side doors and take either one. On the other side, where the medikit is, face south and shoot the skulls, which will reveal a switch behind you (north). Using it will cause a wall to open to your right (east), containing an energy cell pack and a teleporter to a soul sphere in the starting area with crates. (sector 112)
  2. Move north from where Secret #1 is and take the western door at the set of three doors. In the circular area that follows, press on the southern wall with ridges around it, then press the button to raise some steps. The plasma gun at the top counts as the secret. (sector 190)
  3. Open the blue door and open the wall directly to the right of the switch (east) to find partial invisibility. (sector 53)
