Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the starting area, get on the blocks to the east of the start and run at full speed north to the backpack. You get only one shot at this secret. (sector 19)
  2. Head northwest from the starting area and go until you get to the second box of shotgun shells. Quickly return up the steps and into an area to the east with rockets and armor bonuses. (sector 48)
  3. Jump east from Secret #2 and head east to the steps. Before the top, open a wall to the south, take a lift, and you will find rockets and medikits. (sector 335)
  4. In the complex at the northeast end, go to the northeast side with the big lift and while the lift is moving, hug the north wall to get a soul sphere and a medikit. (sector 262)
  5. In the complex at the northeast end, at the westernmost building, find a switch in the middle of the steps where health bonuses are and use it. Run south past the step to a lift leading up to ammo. (sector 304)
  6. At the southeast end, at the south building with the health bonuses on rising and lowering pillars, get on the north pillar and ride up. Press on the north wall and jump across to get an energy cell and a BFG9000. (sector 476)
  7. Head north from the southeasternmost building, across the steps, and onto smaller steps to the north. Open the north wall directly in front of you to get a soul sphere. (sector 420)
