Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head to the middle of the first building, then to the north side. As you do, you will hear a lift lower. Quickly head back to the southwest end of the building to collect rockets and partial invisibility before the block rises. (sector 0)
  2. In the first building, flip the switch at the northwest corner (easily accessed by taking the teleporter in the southwest corner) which will lower bars to the southeast. Just past these bars, press on a wall to the north to find a super shotgun, a soul sphere, a box of ammo, an ammo clip, a rocket, shotgun shells, a stimpack, a green armor, and an invulnerability if you are playing on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower (otherwise there will be a revenant in the room). (sector 66)
  3. At the final area at the south end of the map, go to the middle column at the left end of the central area and use its south side to lower a revenant (imp on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) and armor bonuses. (sector 112)
  4. In the second building, make your way to the blue-floored room and use the wall in the northeast corner to find a chainsaw and a computer area map. (sector 127)
  5. At the final area at the south end of the map, the side doors will open when you enter. Take the northeast path and use the brown wall to the north to find a green armor, a box of shotgun shells, a box of ammo, a medikit, and a stimpack. (sector 206)
