Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the teleporter at the end of the red river and flip the switch to the right of the teleporter you came out of. Head back to the red river and head south to a cave where you can take the steps to a chaingun and ammo clips. (sector 106)
  2. As you approach the chaingun behind Secret #1, look northeast and shoot the target. This will lower a berserk pack to the north. (sector 291)
  3. After you get the red key, go to the southwest end of the map and flip the switch there. You can then get shotgun shells, a rocket, armor bonuses, health bonuses, a soul sphere, and a super shotgun. (sector 372)
  4. When you reach the door that leads to the hall leading to the exit, drop to the south to find a stimpack and a box of rockets. (sector 409)
