Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the entrance to the mines, take the west path. At the next fork, keep left, and then left again to reach an armor bonus, a box of shotgun shells, and a box of ammo. (sector 47)
  2. Come back to the previously mentioned fork, but this time, go right, then two lefts, then, at yet another fork, go right. You will reach the yellow key. (sector 103)
  3. Come back to the fork that leads to Secret 2. This time, go left all the way to the end where a health bonus and some shotgun shells are. (sector 107)
  4. From the entrance to the mines, take the east path, going past the red key. When you see the fire, turn east and find a hidden dark passage that leads to stimpacks, a health bonus, and two boxes of shotgun shells. (sector 61)
  5. Come back to the previously mentioned location with fire. This time, run all the way north through it to get this secret. (sector 80)
  6. From the large lava pit in the center of the map, take the northeast path to the fork and then head west to the lava pit. Be careful not to fall in, and inch along the edge going west. Hug the south wall and you should climb up to a soul sphere. (sector 135)
  7. Come back to the fork and this time keep going northeast. Near the supplies, there is a hidden dark passage leading east, take it to find a health bonus and a megaarmor. (sector 152)
  8. In the large room with the stands, take the stairs to the southwest. At the top, go to the base of the next set of steps, then open the wall to the north. Lower the next wall you come across to reach a courtyard, where you can get the blue key. (sector 225)
