Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Use the red monitor in the yellow key room to open the vent where you can get a computer area map. (sector 61)
  2. Open the blue door in the southern part of the map and use the red monitor straight ahead. Backtrack to the previous room and a vent will be open. Go through the cave behind the vent for a rocket launcher. (sector 139)
  3. There is lava in the southeast portion of the map. To reach it, enter the building north of it using the crates, and in the room with shotgun guys on crates, go around the backside of the crates to find a few to climb upon. Jump out of the window into the lava and then southward to a cave with an armor. (sector 302)
