Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the station and take the door to the east. Open the wall with the UAC logo to find a passage, and nearby are lots of supplies. (sector 295)
  2. Go all the way to the end of the passage mentioned in the previous secret. Where the green armor and backpack are, open the wall for a shortcut out. (sector 285)
  3. Head west from the previous secret to a room with lots of enemies. Go around the column in the northwest corner until you see a slimy wall. Open it to get a berserk pack, a box of shotgun shells, and a box of ammo. (sector 284)
  4. Open the red door and go east until you see the nukage pit. Hop in and under the wall to find another berserk pack and an energy cell. (sector 392)
  5. When you reach the hall with rockets on the east side, lower the window with the two medikits to find armor bonuses, a plasma gun, an energy cell, and shotgun shells. (sector 216)
  6. In the area that follows, stick to the west rocks and head north. Turn around to see a soul sphere. To reach it, hug the rocks until you can get up to the higher ones, then reach the soul sphere from there. (sector 172)
  7. After the canyon area, go down the steps, and as it bends, lower the north wall. You will find health bonuses, armor bonuses, and a box of ammo. (sector 126)
  8. Keep going down the steps mentioned above, and before the next set of steps, you can open a wall at the south end of the hall for a teleporter. This may take a few attempts, as the door may not open all the way, but when it does, you can reach the teleporter to the next secret. (sector 132)
  9. Enter the teleporter in Secret #8 to reach a plateau in the western part of the map, Go between the trees on the north side, and look for a crack in the rocks. Press the wall under it to lower another one nearby, with a passage that eventually leads outside. This area has some ammo and two health bonuses. (sector 13)


A mancubus (Thing 414) in the northern monster cache has no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so it does not actually appear in the level.
