Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Exit the starting room, then open the door to the west and head north. Use the panel in the northeast corner to find a computer area map. (sector 366)
  2. From the previous secret, go south through the hall into the next big room, then take the stairs up to the yellow key and use the switch to get it. Return to the big room north of the starting room and use the switch near the southwest door to open it and find armor bonuses and shotgun shells. (sector 1503)
  3. Using that same yellow key from before, head down the steps from where the key was until you find a door in a corner. Use the switch to open up the storage closet. Inside are health and armor bonuses and shotgun shells. The yellow key can also be used to open the lockers here, with an ammo clip, a light amplification visor, and two health bonuses inside. Note that one of the lockers here is the security locker and needs to be opened later on. (sector 1214)
  4. Head for the northeast corner of the map and find the lift switch. Ride the circular lift up and you can take the blue key from the room to the south. Return to Secret #3 and use the switch at the east wall, which required the blue key, to get a super shotgun. (sector 1502)
  5. In the easternmost room, take either set of steps to the second floor then go to the east wall, where if you have the yellow key you can use the switch to reach a room with health bonuses and shotgun shells. (sector 826)
  6. After the monsters invade the station, return to where the yellow key was, head down the steps going east, and into the bloody room to the east. Just at the entrance is a small switch which will open up the security locker in Secret #3, where you can get a backpack. (sector 1196)
  7. After the monsters invade the station, return to where the yellow key was and head down the steps, then back north. A new switch here can be used, which will let you get an armor bonus from the northwest corner. (sector 1302)
