Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the big fuel storage room, a wall in the northeast corner can be lowered. Do it, and use the lift in this alcove to go up, then go outside. Out here are a plasma gun, a box of rockets, a box of ammo, an energy cell, and a health bonus. (sector 70)
  2. Keep following the dark passage past Secret #3 and #6, and you will eventually wind up on the ledge with the soul sphere. (sector 119)
  3. Open the switch yard door and as you approach the next door, look for a misaligned wall to the left. Lower it for a dark passage. (sector 154)
  4. Open the red door and approach the exit. You will hear a door open. Quickly turn around and run around the building back to your starting point where the door will be open briefly, allowing you to get a megasphere. (sector 180)
  5. In the yellow key room, a slime-covered wall is to the left behind the fuel rods. Lower it for health bonuses, a box of shotgun shells, and a box of ammo. (sector 188)
  6. Follow the dark passage in Secret #3 to the next big room. The rock where the megaarmor is counts as a secret. (sector 220)
