  1. At the easternmost end, head to the fire wall at the east side and use it. Head into the bigger room west of the teleporter here, then enter the south compartment to get an energy cell pack. (sector 878)
  2. At the north end, head up the steps and use the northwest switch, then head to the east end of this platform and use the switch there. Run to the southwest compartment and enter the teleporter to find lots of health bonuses, armor bonuses, ammo clips, a green armor, a box of rockets, a computer area map, and partial invisibility. (sector 886)
  3. In the southern caves, use the southeast switch, then head east and south. Use the torch there, then head back and east to get a chainsaw, a stimpack, and rockets. (sector 945)
  4. In the southeast corner, when the lift lowers, head northwest and into the outer hall when it opens. Use the switch in this hall. It will not light up, but head out of the hall and into the northeast staircase for this secret. You can get rockets and a soul sphere behind a cage. (sector 977)
  5. At the northeast corner, head to the west end to open the northeast closet, then head to that closet and use the west wall. Open the way into the cage to get rockets and a stimpack. (sector 1037)
