  2. Press the southeastern wall in Secret #1 to find an invulnerability and a teleporter. (sector 59)
  3. Use the teleporter in Secret #2 to end up in the center of the map. The northwestern wall there will open, with armor bonuses and boxes of rockets inside. (sector 25)
  4. If you enter the southwestern teleporter from the doors behind it, you will unlock the northeastern wall in the center, which contains a box of ammo. (sector 14)

  6. Doing the same thing again but with the northeastern teleporter will unlock the southwestern wall, with partial invisibility and a box of ammo inside. (sector 65)

  9. In the red room at the northwestern part of the map, press the southern wall between the insignias and follow the trail to a chainsaw and a megaarmor. (sector 95)
