Secrets[edit]

  1. The room with the red key has an unmarked secret door in the east wall leading to two medikits (one in hard skill), a box of bullets, and an energy cell pack. (sector 208)
  2. The blue key room has an unmarked secret door in the south wall, which opens on shooting, leading to two medikits and a box of rockets. On multiplayer there is also a megaarmor, a computer area map, a box of bullets, and another box of rockets. (sector 222)
  3. North of the blue key room is a passage leading to a teleporter. This passage has an unmarked secret door in the north wall leading to a room with a switch. This switch lowers a platform containing a medikit (two on multiplayer), two boxes of bullets, a box of rockets, and two energy cell packs. (sector 224)
  4. North of the red door, the path leads to a switch. This switch lowers the nearby 'well', allowing access to two shotgun guys, an energy cell and a box of rockets. There is an unmarked secret door in the west wall leading to two energy cells and (on easy and medium skills) an armor. (sector 214)
  5. The switch in #3 opens up a door leading west from #4 into a room with a switch. Press this switch then run onto the rising platform in the centre (this only works once). At the top are two boxes of rockets, a megaarmor, and an energy cell pack. There is also a switch here - this lowers a megasphere in the room that #3 leads to. (sector 230)
  6. Take the teleporter near #3 - this takes you to a room whose south wall has a narrow hole leading down to an area with two spectres (one on easy skill), some stimpack, a megaarmor, and some ammo on multiplayer. (sector 183)
  7. The north-western room of the building in the centre of the main outdoor area has an unmarked secret door in its south wall leading to two stimpacks, two boxes of rockets, a box of bullets, and an energy cell pack. (sector 233)
  8. The room in the central building that contains the switch that opens one of the doors to the exit area has an unmarked secret door in its south wall, leading to two stimpacks, a medikit, an armor, a box of rockets, and an energy cell pack. (sector 205)
