Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Open the door next to the blue door at the start. Take the steps that you see down into the next area, and the doors to your left open up. Head through the left door and press on the lighter portion of wall to discover a berserk pack. (sector 96)
  2. After opening the big door in the large room with pumps, enter the next area and press on the misaligned green wall to find a super shotgun. (sector 332)
  3. At the indoor room with nukage, jump towards the nukagefall on the south side of the room and go through to get a computer area map. (sector 389)
  4. Open the door next to the blue door at the start. Take the steps that you see down into the next area. Go southwest and into the water. Press on the wall with valves to find a secret area with a soul sphere and a teleporter (which only works on Ultra-Violence or higher, see Bugs). (sector 482)


The teleporter in Secret #4 only works in Ultra-Violence or higher because its teleport destination thing (Thing 3) is only flagged for those skill settings.
