Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Flip the blue key switch to raise a walkway leading south to the red key. On the next big platform, look to the west towards the area with the chaingunner and the soul sphere, and you can spot a switch. Shoot the switch, then drop off the platform to the west and go west across the bridge to the other side of the water. A new area is open to the south, with a teleporter leading to the back area where the soul sphere is. A mancubus and a box of shotgun shells is here as well. (sector 238)
  2. Return to the starting point after getting the red key and use it on the switch here to get a super shotgun. (sector 384)
  3. When you reach the exit switch, inspect the banner to the north of the switch to find a hidden switch. This will lower the plasma gun in the northwest part of the main area. (sector 402)
  4. Head east from the switch where the red bars are, until you find a terminal with red writing on it. Use this terminal, which will lower a wall to the southwest, near the entrance to this area. A rocket launcher is stashed away here. (sector 954)
