Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head straight across the train tracks when you reach them and open the door at the east end to get a rocket launcher. (sector 217)
  2. Just before you enter the sewer section accessible from the outdoor portion of the map, look at the lights in the ground. Find the one that is brighter than the rest and open the wall where it is to find a radiation suit. (sector 444)
  3. In the outdoor area, notice one of the candle-lighted walls in the northwest is glowing. Open this wall to find a backpack and some ammo. (sector 785)
