Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the room west of the blue key, use the wall behind the light amplification visor to find boxes of shotgun shells, boxes of ammo, a radiation suit, and a computer area map. (sector 71)
  2. In the southwest area, use the recessed wall at the southeast corner to lower it and reveal a switch a bit to the north. Flip it to open the door. Take the lift down to the water area to find health bonuses, ammo clips, armor bonuses, boxes of rockets, and a rocket launcher. (sector 212)
  3. In the southeast area with the crates, use the lift to the north and open the wall past the chaingunner to find a berserk pack. (sector 165)
  4. Take the aforementioned lift up and head east. Several walls with former humans open up to the east. Enter the northernmost of these compartments and use the wall with the candle to find a hidden passage. You will find boxes of ammo here, and if you have the red key, flip the switch and take the lift up to reach a radiation suit, a light amplification visor, and a megasphere. (sector 199)
  5. In Secret #4, there is a diamond-shaped lift you can lower. Ride it up and hop the blocks to the teleporter to reach the soul sphere near the exit. If you tried to get this soul sphere earlier, you would have teleported to the beginning. (sector 101)
