Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you teleport to the second half, leave the building and head to the fenced section to the west. Use the monitor here, and within five seconds, go all the way around the building to the east side and into the teleporter to the north before it closes. You will find a plasma gun and a teleporter hub. (sector 9)
  2. At the northwest end are four switches, which involves a timing puzzle to get a soul sphere at the southwest part of the room. The two switches in the middle will lower and raise the nukage floor through the fence, respectively. You need to flip the left switch first, then the right switch. The rightmost switch will lower the pipes to the east of the switches for three seconds, which you use to get up to the nukage floor. The leftmost switch will open a door past the nukage floor for about eight seconds. The best way to get this secret is to make sure the floor is raised, then use the rightmost switch, wait a second, then flip the leftmost switch, ride the pipes, and run through the door to get the soul sphere. (sector 383)
  3. In the area at the south of the start, press the switch and drop back to the starting room. Open the east wall to find a passage back up, which you should take. Back at the room south of the start, head west to get a megaarmor. (thing 271)
