Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Don’t use the switch that raises the stairs, it will definitely close the access to the first two secret zones. Instead, open the door and search for a berserk. Nearby, open a wall for the chainsaw and a teleporter. (sector 78)
  2. Enter it, kill the baddies (five stimpacks sit here). Open a wall (sector 227), follow the path for the shotgun, a soulsphere and two medikits. From here, go down.
  3. Open a wall in the south-west of the stony room, another berserk awaits. (sector 103)
  4. Before the next room, a trapped wall opens behind you. Open a wall in the trap, four stimpacks and a box of bullets are hidden here. (sector 139)
  5. Between the blue key and the last big room, open a wall for a third secret berserk. (sector 197)
  6. From here, open a wall for the backpack. (sector 183)
