Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the west side, there is a hall with a soul sphere on a pillar. Climb the steps at the west side and look northeast at the green torches. There is a switch on the east side of the first torch, which you will shoot to lower the soul sphere. (sector 731)
  2. In the central nukage area, head to the west side and south through the nukage to a cave with health bonuses, a radiation suit, and a computer area map. (sector 1113)
  3. Head east of Secret #1, up the steps, then northeast, as if you were going to the central nukage area. On the northwest wall is a switch. After using it, head west, then drop off to the super shotgun area. Another switch is immediately to the south. Head to the northwest hall that has health and armor bonuses in the water, head east, and use the switch there. After using all three switches, head south from that hall, to where a rocket launcher is, then head east, through a corridor. Continue east and then drop south to a secret arena with ammo, medikits, and a soul sphere. (sector 1720)
  4. At the north end, head to the western waterway and open the wooden wall at the north end to find armor bonuses, a medikit, and stimpacks. (sector 3093)
  5. In the grotto at the southwest end, head along the south side but pay attention to the area beyond the fence. Find a switch to the southeast and shoot it, then head east and get the megaarmor that lowered at the top. (sector 3228)
