  1. The large red rock visible by going north to the outside from the starting point is the secret. It holds an invulnerability, a megasphere, a BFG9000, and energy cell packs. You will need to make a rocket jump by shooting at the floor while running towards the island to reach it, and use the invulnerability and another rocket jump to get back. (sector 417)
