Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the room where you must restore power, head to the southeast vat and blow it open. Swim down to get backpacks. (sector 17)
  2. In the experimental labs, enter Biotech lab 2 and press on the northwest terminal. After some messages, you can go through the north wall to get a green armor and a berserk pack. (sector 129)
  3. At the weapons labs and storage, head to the square hallway in the middle and you have two options. One is to open the north door, and enter the room, which will immediately open the south wall with imps. The other is to enter the room at the south end of the hall and pick up the BFG9000, which will open the north wall with imps. In either case, entering the room to the north or jumping over the barrier in the south room will lower a lift. Quickly get on it to find stimpacks and backpacks. (sector 1318)
  4. In the launch pad, use the right switch on the forklift to raise the forks all the way, then use them to open the west wall with a computer area map. (sector 1322)
  5. In the entrance room to the superconducting coils, open the west door, then head to the southwest corner. Step onto the tile that is sticking out, then return to the entrance room and jump onto the east terminal to find two medikits. (sector 1059)
  6. Enter the freight depot and go straight to the crates to the north. Use the smallest crate to jump up, then press on the north crate to get an invulnerability. (sector 969)
