Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the hub, take the left door and open the next door you see. Just before the bend in the steps, open the wall to your left to find two stimpacks and a box of ammo. (sector 116)
  2. When you press the switch at the top of the steps in the southeast room, the room to the east will open up. Shoot the switch behind the monsters here and return to the previous switch to find a green armor. (sector 211)
  3. Once you get the yellow key, return to the water and enter the small alcove to find a switch. Press it, then quickly enter the nearby door and pick up the chainsaw. (sector 180)
