Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southwest room, use the terminal near the south switch and go northwest to the lowered platform. Ride it up to a teleporter to a box of rockets. (sector 1367)
  2. In the easternmost room, head to the south side and use the switch to the north. Quickly run to the northeast side to get a box of rockets. (sector 967)
  3. Open the security bars with the blue key, then head to the west side. Find the switch here and use it, then quickly enter the water to the east and head south and west to a megaarmor. The secret sector itself is too small to register. (sector 402)
  4. At the northeast room, look up at the west side and shoot the switch, then quickly head west and get the blur artifact from the lowered crate before it rises. (sector 1178)
  5. At the outside area at the north end, head to the crate stack on the west side, then look up to the wall there to find a switch. Shoot it, then head behind the crate stack to get health bonuses, armor bonuses, and a switch for a teleporter to a soul sphere. (sector 647)
  6. In the exit room, open the wall just north of two crates to find health bonuses and a box of rockets. (sector 1373)
