Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the steps leading southwest from the nukage. Keep going southwest until you reach the door. Through the window, shoot at the wall to the southwest to open it, then open the door nearby. Go around and to this open room to get a berserk pack and computer area map. (sector 69)
  2. In the yellow key room, head to the north side behind the wall to find a switch on the block. Using it lowers the central column allowing you to reach a soul sphere. Note that if you pick up the yellow key, the surrounding walls will have lowered, but you can still hit the switch if you are standing in front of where it was supposed to be. (sector 81)
  3. In the nukage room north of the yellow key room, go through the nukagefall in the northeast corner to find two teleporters. Take the right one to pop out in a cage with a chainsaw and imps. (sector 153)
  4. In the nukage room north of the yellow key room, go through the nukagefall in the northeast corner to find two teleporters. Take the left one for the secret. You can also reach this secret from Secret #3 after reentering the teleporter. (sector 160)
