Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Just after the red door, open a wall for a soulsphere. (sector 150)
  2. Open the wall behind the revenant(s) in the blue key zone. Follow the path (sector 283) for a soulsphere, a box of bullets and a box of shotgun shells.


It is possible, albeit extremely rare, to get locked out of sector 52 (the alcove west of the chainsaw room) before flicking the mandatory switch on line 236. This is because the entrance to that area can only be opened once from the eastern side, where the player is, but the western side of the door is flagged as a monster-usable "open, wait and then close" door. If a monster triggers this line, the door will consequently shut, and if you haven't already entered the alcove, you will be unable to do so.
