Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Open the door at the start and head north into the computer room. Shoot the television on the left terminal, then head all the way to the northwest end of the hall. There will be an opening here with a soul sphere, backpack, or berserk pack depending on your skill level. This area counts as two secrets. (sector 123)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 124)
  3. In the brown-floored hall at the north end of the map, go all the way southwest to a door, then use the wall to the west of that door. Flip the switch here, then go back across the hall to the switch with the lift. To the south, you can get a green armor. (sector 165)
