Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Two sectors in the main square are high above platforms at the southwest and southeast ends have a plasma gun and an energy cell pack. It is not possible to access either of these sectors without resorting to cheats. (sector 367)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 368)
  3. At the northern caves, head to the west side and before you head outside, look to the west wall to find a section that looks different. Use it and take the teleporter to reach a berserk pack and boxes of rockets (only one will be available on Ultra-Violence or higher). (sector 80)
