Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the hub, take the door to the east and then go north and open the blue bars. Use the lift and ride it up, then head straight east to the blue wall. Open it to find a megaarmor. (sector 144)
  2. At the start, get on the left railing above the steps and run straight across to the wall. Press on the section of wall that has slime on it to reveal a secret area with ammo, a green armor, and partial invisibility. (sector 188)
  3. At the hub, take the door to the east and then open the door to your right. Go past the cage and crates to the next door and open it. In the rocket launcher room, open the metal wall to your right to find a backpack. (sector 199)
  4. At the west side of the map where the nukage is, enter the passage to the south and go all the way through to get a chaingun and some ammo. (sector 476)
