Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northeast end, head south to the room with the berserk pack, then look back and one of the vats will be open. Head through to the open area with health bonuses, armor bonuses, a medikit, rockets, a box of shotgun shells, and an energy cell pack. (sector 229)
  2. In the southeast room, go to the rightmost pool and enter the corridor to find shotgun shells, armor bonuses, a chainsaw, and a megaarmor. (sector 6)
  3. At the southernmost hall with blue lights, open the east door, then use the terminal at the north end to lower the central wall. Behind it you will find a box of rockets and energy cells. (sector 267)
  4. In the hall south of the area with crates, head east, then southeast until you get a switch. After using it, backtrack and take the northeast steps down. To the north will be a backpack and partial invisibility. (sector 155)
  5. Open the yellow door west of the starting point and head up to a switch. Flip it, then run south past the door and east when you can to get a soul sphere before it rises. (sector 50)
  6. Continue past Secret #5 to a room with two switches. Press the one on the north end, then leave and return to the starting point. Head east and up, and there will be an alcove to the left with a computer area map. (sector 4)
