Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, go to the energy cell and use the switch to the left of it to get a plasma gun. (sector 56)
  2. At the start, run to the west, on the platform, and out the window. Press the switch here and teleport back. Head back to the platform and head north, opening the door. Get the chaingun and open the wall behind it to find a backpack. (sector 57)
  3. In the room east of the start, press the switch in the southwest corner and head outside to get a megaarmor, a medikit, and an energy cell pack. (sector 85)
  4. In the room east of the start, head to the northeast corner and open the recessed wall for a radiation suit. This will protect you for when you get to this secret, accessible by pressing the recessed wall at the southeast end. Follow the path all the way and get the soul sphere. (sector 121)
  5. At the north end with two bars, open the east one to find a path that curves around. At the southeast part of this curve, open the northwest wall to get a blur artifact. (sector 300)
  6. In the southeast area, go to the southwest set of steps and find a skull switch at the southeast part of this area. Use it and quickly run east to a teleporter that shows up. On this platform with plasma guns, leave to open the south and east walls. Return to the platform and press on the lion switch that is not lit, which opens a teleporter taking you to energy cells, medikits, a box of ammo, and a chaingun. You need to open the south and east walls to leave this secret. (sector 367)
