  1. In the northeast part of the map after hitting a switch to lower the stairs you crossed earlier, two alcoves to the side have opened. You can see a soul sphere in the southern alcove. To get it, go to the northern alcove and press the purple Incan face. This lowers a wall behind you with an imp and barrels. Head through this new room and another wall lowers with a revenant (only on Ultra-Violence or higher) or a shotgun guy, and you can obtain the soul sphere from there. (sector 590)
