Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you reach the area with the large lift, go to the left of it and look at the blinking light on the wall. Press on the wall under it to hear a door open. Go north from there into a new passage with energy cells and a plasma gun. (sector 172)
  2. In the large hallway past the blue door, look for a set of terminals just next to the door. Press on the central one to lower the crate behind it. Step onto this crate, which contains a rocket, and another crate will lower, this one to the northwest (near Secret #3). This one also contains a rocket. When you step on it, another crate to the southwest will lower, also containing a rocket. Step on this one, then quickly run through the tunnel to find the lowered crate with the rocket launcher. You may have to destroy the barrels in order to reach this secret. (sector 193)
  3. On the high ledge southeast of the blood pond, flip the switch and teleport back. Run back through the hallway back to the blue door, and on the north side will be an open compartment containing a megaarmor, two boxes of ammo, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 263)
  4. The platform past Secret #5 has several powerups, including a radiation suit. Drop into the lava and find the dark passage leading right. Climb the steps, flipping the switch on the way, and you should be back at the platform. A bridge will rise up, leading to a megasphere. (sector 298)
  5. On the high ledge southeast of the blood pond, flip the switch and teleport back, and then run back to the area behind the red door. Head to the northeast quadrant to find a new compartment open to the north. Now go to the east compartment to find a switch to flip, then run to the north compartment and through the opening to the east for the secret. (sector 299)
