Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head right from the start and take the lift down. At the bottom, head right to the corner with the shotgun shells on the walls. There is a hidden face switch on the south wall. Press it to lower the east wall, then step on that wall to raise the rest of it up so you can collect the berserk pack. (sector 80)
  2. The wall that lowers for Secret #1 also rises after some time. Stand on it when it rises then strafejump to the south wall. Open the left set of hieroglyphs and follow the passage to find a green armor. (sector 118)
  3. After the room with the six vertical sarcophagi is a dark room where a pain elemental (lost soul on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) teleports in next to the fire pot. Press on the hieroglyph south of the pot to find a green armor and ten armor bonuses. (sector 213)
  4. In the large room at the north end of the map, look at the torches on the outside walls. The northwesternmost torch is green instead of red. Press on the wall directly opposite of the torch to find a backpack, a box of shotgun shells, a box of ammo, a medikit, and ten armor bonuses. (sector 320)
