Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the first hall and head east past four cages. Open a wall to the south that looks different from the rest and head south, making some stairs rise. You can get health bonuses, armor bonuses, and a soul sphere out here. (sector 80)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 81)
  3. Open the yellow door and head east. When the path curves north, open the east wall to get night goggles. (sector 157)
  4. In the yellow key room in the center of the map, lower the metal wall at the south end and go through the passage south. You can get a computer area map, a health bonus, a medikit, an armor bonus, and partial invisibility from the lifts. (sector 411)
  5. Continue north from Secret #3 and head east when you can, all the way east and slightly southeast to a teleporter. Before the teleporter room, open the east wall and follow this path to get a stimpack, boxes of shotgun shells, and a dual sawed-off shotgun. (sector 428)
