Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After picking up the red key, go north past the lowered bars, then head all the way back to the red door to find a monster closet to the north. Enter that closet and find a switch in the middle of the south wall. Flip it and take the east lift up. Head southeast and there will be an area to the northeast with a backpack. (sector 132)
  2. Open the red door and run up the two sets of steps after it. Head east into a compartment before it closes to get a megaarmor and two health bonuses. (sector 239)
  3. At the south end of the map, jump from the blue floor west to the lowest floor, which will lower several areas. Take the steps back to the middle and go east through a terminal. Flip the switch here to lower a chainsaw. (sector 393)
