Other points of interest
- On the ramparts near the start of the level, there is an alcove with an elevated platform and a megaarmor atop it. To get it, head to the left of this alcove, where there is a switch that lowers a teleporter to the right. It drops you off straight on top of the megaarmor. (sector 20)
- In the watery cavern near the red key switch, there is one rocky outcropping with a chaingunner that you can clamber on top of. Look to the east: on the stretched skin wall surrounded by red runes, one of the rune tiles is missing. Shoot this missing tile to reveal a button at the far west of the upper water level that lowers the elevated floor beside it, where you can collect an energy cell pack. (sector 85)
- Collect the red key and drop down to the water below. Head to the right. The waterfall under the stone arch is not solid and hides a box of shotgun shells. (sector 264)
- Once you get the red key, hit the switch and drop to the water on the east. Follow the cave to a bend north, then head south through a dark passage (sector 195) covered in vines to a small room with a soulsphere.
- Drop off the balcony after the yellow key doors and head east, into a cave beside a green torch. At the waterfall, look to the right and you'll spot a recessed rock wall covered in scratches. Open it to find a soulsphere on a lift (sector 448) that lowers as soon as you cross the threshold.
