Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go into the big room past the first room and go to the left side. On the northeast wall will be some blue lights. Open the wall where these lights are to find rockets and a backpack. (sector 120)
  2. In the room with the techno pillars just outside the yellow key platform, go behind the western pillar and find a switch to use here. This opens up the southwest corner, where demons guard a green armor as well as several health and armor bonuses. (sector 374)
  3. In the blue maze-like area on the west side of the map, head to the northeast corner and open the wall here for stimpacks and ammo. (sector 406)
  4. East of the blue maze-like area on the west end of the map, go down the steps and go east all the way until you reach a lift. Ride it up and head left. Open the wall where the stimpack is and open the next wall to find shotgun shells and ammo clips on the computer terminals. (sector 38)
