Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, head north to the red door and use the red banner on the right. Return to the starting point and get on the lift. Press the skull switch and ride another lift to a soul sphere. (sector 11)
  2. In the gray cave, shoot the switch where the box of shotgun shells is. In the next hall, lower the south wall under the black square at the entrance to find medikits, a backpack, an energy cell pack, a box of shotgun shells, a box of ammo, and a chainsaw. (sector 68)
  3. At the northeast end of the map, use the terminal on the north wall, then head south a bit in the hall. There is a corridor on the east side leading to a teleporter. Take it, then flip the switch at the end to find ammo and a megasphere. (sector 104)
  4. Take the lift down to the yellow key area and head to the east side. Hug the south wall as you go and you will go through a wall which has a berserk pack. (sector 130)
  5. Open the small yellow door at the north end of the map. In the corridor with health and armor bonuses, right before the first turn, open the east wall to find rockets, a rocket launcher, and a lift back to the starting point. (sector 159)
  6. In the area before the exit door, head south into the small room and get to the south end. Open the middle block from here to collect an invulnerability. (sector 192)
