Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the small hall with the skull switch that lowers the red keycard, to the opposite of the hall is a metallic techno wall which can be lowered to access a box of bullets and a backpack. (sector 272)
  2. In the toxic maze near the end of it is a wall with metal borders on both sides of it. Open it like it is a door, inside are a megaarmor and 20 health bonuses. (sector 312)
  3. At the end of the level go through the yellow bars after killing all the teleporting enemies, then make a left and lower the wall with cracks and holes in it to get a soulsphere. (sector 248)


  • In the yellow key room pressing the switch that lowers the lift in the center of the pit will reveal that the bridge that connects the donut shaped island to the yellow key has no texture.[?]
