Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After taking the teleporter to the north of the room with the three teleporters, head towards the east wall. There is an unmarked secret door on this wall leading to a shotgun guy, a berserk, a health bonus (all not on easy skill), a box of bullets and a megaarmor. (sector 216)
  2. The sector at the top of the lift leading to the switch which opens up the teleporter to the south of the room with the three teleporters counts as a secret and is impossible to miss. (sector 77)
  3. After taking the teleporter to the east of the room with the three teleporters, head towards the T-junction and turn right. On the south wall is an unmarked secret door leading to a stimpack and some ammo. (sector 214)
  4. After going through the final teleporter, go through the door. On the third step of the curved staircase is a secret door on the outer wall leading to an energy cell, an energy cell pack, and a soul sphere. (sector 223)
