Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the first lift east of the start, then use the big terminal to the east. This will lower the separate one with a light amplification visor behind it. (sector 8)
  2. At the southeast part of the nukage, go to the south side of the column and find a switch on it. Flip it and head north to get to a corner room with medikits, energy cells, and a computer area map. (sector 74)
  3. At the yellow key, use the computer where the dead marine is and head down the steps to enter a room to the west with a rocket launcher, medikits, a box of rockets, and an armor bonus. (sector 115)
  4. At the northernmost end, flip the switch, then descend the steps and head to the southwest closet. Open a wall to the south to get a soul sphere. (sector 146)
