Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the start, enter the dark alcove in the southeast corner and use the crate to lower it. Take the lift down to get a megaarmor. (sector 16)
  2. In the blue key area, go to the northwest corner and use the wooden corner there. It will lower, revealing a switch. Shoot it to open the nearby wall, which contains one health bonus. Grabbing it reveals a chaingunner and a soul sphere. (sector 158)
  3. Open the blue door and head east to the rubble. There is a hidden switch there. Using it reveals the red key nearby. With the red key, go back to the blue key chamber and open the red door at the northeast end. Take the lift down to get a plasma gun and energy cell packs. (sector 252)
