Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you approach the area with the blue key, you open up alcoves underneath the beams in the central structure of the map. Go to the southern set of alcoves and you will find a switch in the bottom one. This raises a lift to the east of the switch. Use this lift to go up and then enter the area with neon-lighted platforms that contains stimpacks, boxes of rockets, a megaarmor, and a rocket launcher. (sector 784)
  2. On the stairs where the red key is located, head into the compartment just west of the red key. Press on the wall with a candle in front of it to lower it, and follow this hall to a super shotgun (this area contains rockets and a rocket launcher on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower). (sector 886)
  3. Press the switch in the far eastern section of the map, then return to where the red key switch was. There is an opening in the rocks with a bulk cell and a switch to lower the plasma gun. (sector 569)

Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]


  • The 'Man' visable from secret number 2 in the south-east corner is a reference to the Nazca Lines, being identical to the geoglyph known as "The Giant". The Lines are popular among real-life ancient aliens theorists, who refer to the one referenced as "The Astronaut".
