Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the cave with the blue key, climb the rock up on the left and look in the left corner to find a chainsaw. (sector 189)
  2. Inside the room with the red keycard, the wall on the northwest corner (with the lights on the bottom) looks different on the automap. Shoot it to reveal two stimpacks and six stacked armor bonuses. (sector 349)
