Secrets[edit]

  1. Take the lift northeast from the start and head north. Enter the east compartment to get a box of ammo, a stimpack or a medikit depending on your skill level, and shotgun shells (only on Ultra-Violence or higher). This secret closes after thirty seconds have passed in the level. (sector 243)
  2. Head north from the start and use the computer. This reveals a radiation suit behind you. (sector 70)
  3. In the dark computer room at the north end, head to the west side, go to the middle, face east, and shoot the eye. This opens a wall behind you containing a chainsaw, a stimpack, and a light amplification visor. (sector 218)
  4. Press the switch near the red key, then head past Secret #1 to a new room. Head south to a soul sphere, but do not go too close to the wall or you will teleport. Instead, find a blue wall here and shoot it. Backtrack a little and head east to find a blur artifact. (sector 89)
  5. Inside Secret #4, look south and shoot the eye to open a teleporter leading to the multiplayer section of the map. (sector 306)
  6. Climb the steps at the northwest end and go behind the crates to the north. Shoot an evil eye to the north to open the west wall, which has armor bonuses, a soul sphere, shotgun shells, and an energy cell pack. (sector 230)
  7. Open the yellow door and head west to a switch. Look west and shoot the evil eye to open the north wall which contains an energy cell pack and a medikit. (sector 201)
