Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the west end of the map, head to the bottom of the water (where the teleporter is) for the secret sector. (sector 109)
  2. On the waterway at the east end of the map, get on the first rock you come to and head to the back end to find a switch. Flip it, then leave the waterway and head back to the yellow door. The eastern wall is now lowered, with a box of shotgun shells behind it as well as a switch that lowers a teleporter near the starting point. (sector 71)
  3. On the same waterway mentioned in secret #2, head to the middle of the waterway and find the switch on the inner wall of the waterway in the middle, which is on the west wall. After flipping it, go back to the yellow door. The western wall is now lowered. Behind it is a green armor and a switch that lowers the teleporter at the starting point. (sector 70)
