Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The south side of the silo near the western building at the start can be opened, allowing you to enter the silo. (sector 99)
  2. Enter the silo in Secret #1 and use the lift to lower it. Ride it up and hug the north wall until you go through it. You will find a soul sphere and the blue keycard here. (sector 102)
  3. The previously mentioned western building at the start has a few entrances. Take the entrance on the west side, but stick to the left as you enter. From there, open the door ahead into the circular open room and open the northern door and go up the steps. There will be an opening on the right side when you reach the top, containing a backpack, a medikit, a box of shotgun shells, and a plasma rifle (the plasma rifle only appears on Hurt Me Plenty or higher). (sector 331)
  4. The fire where the yellow key is counts as a secret. (sector 197)


A berserk pack (thing 46) which only appears on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower, is outside the map boundaries, meaning the maximum number of items possible on those skill settings is 50%.
