Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Press the switch at the start, then climb back to the starting platform. Go underneath the marble face again, then drop off to the north and run towards the teleporter. Press on the lift south of the teleporter to get a soul sphere. (sector 7)
  2. At the yellow key building, the lift that leads to the yellow key also lowers a wall next to it, as well as another wall at the west entrance of the building with a chaingun. You will need to trigger the lift, then drop off and run into the west entrance to get the chaingun before it rises. At the top, you can get boxes of ammo. (sector 113)
  3. Head to the south part of the southeasternmost building and fall into a hole to get an invulnerability. (sector 174)
