Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you lower the big ledge leading to the large nukage area on the west side of the map, run straight there and when you can, turn south and east towards the lowered ledge. Ride this ledge up and follow the steps to a blur artifact. (sector 53)
  2. After flipping the switch in the southern room that goes back to the central area, when you walk across the lowered ledge, a lift will lower. Run as fast as you can north and then west and south as if you were heading back to the southern room to find the lowered lift where the brown wall used to be. Take this lift up to get the berserk pack. (sector 55)
  3. As you traverse the nukage at the northern end of the map, you will reach a fork. Turn to the right side and into the room with the computer down the steps. Look northeast and just above the nukage is a snippet of a ledge. Make a running jump to this ledge and you will teleport to an open area with an invulnerability. (sector 67)
  4. In the northeast room surrounded by nukage, there is a ledge with a BFG9000 just outside. To reach this ledge, you will have to make a strafejump from the small step with radiation suits on it through the window and onto the ledge. (sector 89)
  5. You may notice a switch tucked in a wall in the nukage room with columns. To shoot it, go down the nukage path and take a right at the fork into the room with the computer room down the steps. Position yourself at the window of this small room so that you can see the switch, and then shoot it. This open up the computer at the bottom of the steps, and behind it, you can find a computer area map. (sector 103)
  6. At the northern end of the southern room, there is a tucked-away switch. Use it to lower a lift with a light amplification visor. (sector 122)
  7. As you traverse the nukage at the northern end of the map, a closet will reveal shotgun guys and imps behind you. Keep going to a fork where the left side has a dead end. Take the left path and look closely at the right wall in this path to find a hidden switch. This switch reveals a room behind the closet from before. You can take a lift in this room to reach a pillar containing a soul sphere. (sector 161)
