Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Take the passage east of the red door and go until you reach the ledge where you jump to the red key. When you do this, a lift lowers. Go back through the passage and into the hole at the north end before it rises, which also holds a chainsaw, then jump down to where you can get an invulnerability. (sector 24)
  2. From that same ledge, jump to the platform just before the red key, then head south to the room with the rocket launcher. When you do this, quickly leave the room and head east, then south through the nukage. At the southeast corner, take the teleporter before it rises to reach a room with a light amplification visor. (sector 175)
  3. At the west end of the map, climb the steps that have armor bonuses on them up to a backpack, then attempt to get out to the north. A lift will lower, which is actually one of the steps. The step hides a blue triangle which acts as a teleporter. This will take you to a soul sphere. (sector 126)
  4. At the east end of the map, head to the south end of this area to find two radiation suits. Nearby is a switch. Use it, then head around to the north and inside the enclave, where you will see a pillar with a computer area map lower. Get it before it rises to get the secret. (sector 87)
  5. Open the blue door and when you enter the hall, a lift lowers. Leave through the door and take the small passage to the left of the door all the way to a blue lift before it rises. At the top you can pick up a blur artifact. (sector 100)
  6. In the room with the teleporter leading to the yellow key, go to the south side of the ledge and carefully drop down to a thin section of wall. From here, find the teleporter and take it. You will be on a ledge opposite of the yellow key, where you can get armor bonuses and a berserk pack. (sector 31)
