Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the east door at the start, and at the torch, open the north wall and follow the passage to an ammo clip, partial invisibility, and an armor bonus. (sector 103)
  2. In the slime maze north of the starting point, take the first path north to an armor bonus and follow it to a dead end. Go through the wall to find a radiation suit and ammo. (sector 373)
  3. At the intersection where the super shotgun is, open the east door and go to the corner. Press on the brick wall with metal ridges around it to find a spectre and a green armor. (sector 349)
  4. At the intersection where the super shotgun is, take the path to the west, then go north. There is a high ledge with revenants in front of you. If you press on the ledge's west wall, you can lower it and ride up to this ledge where you will find a rocket launcher, rockets, and a medikit. (sector 249)
  5. The same ledge that you can lower for Secret #4 also lowers the soul sphere in the room to the west. (sector 342)
  6. The hallway that connects the rooms with Secrets #4 and #5 has a light shining on the southern wall. Open this wall to find a berserk pack, a computer area map, partial invisibility, and stimpacks. Note that the two dark parts of this room count as the secret, but not the middle of the room itself. (sector 353)
  7. At the southeast end of the map, press on the light to lower the wall that it shines on, revealing a megaarmor, armor bonuses, an ammo clip, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 162)
