Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head further east from the hall where Secret #3 is, then head south and outside through the hole. Head east to find some imps in front of a computer terminal. Go behind this terminal to find a box of ammo and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 338)
  2. Enter the northwesternmost building via the door on the high ledge north of the starting point. Use the switch in the next room to raise the lift to the next hall, then open the next door you come across. In this room, go towards the rocket pickups and press on the wall to reveal a passage leading outside. At the bottom of the steps, go around to the north to pick up a soul sphere. Note that if you head towards the switch in the big room, bars will block the ways out, including the staircase. You will have to fight spiders and use the switch in the leftmost compartment to remove them. (sector 722)
  3. Enter the building northeast from the starting point and head north to the red steps, then turn right. Press on the brown section of wall to reveal a backpack. (sector 1197)
  4. Head into the building southwest from the starting point. Drop to the lower floor and take either passage to the south, then take the door to the west. At the next fork, turn southwest and press on the left wall between the first two purple lights to find fifty armor bonuses. (sector 1250)
