  1. In the northernmost room, trigger the block in the middle and ride it up, then shoot at the eyes on the north bookshelf. Go to the east side afterwards to find a room with ammo, a rocket launcher, a green armor, and medikits. (sector 123)
  2. In the cargo room past the yellow door, open the door to the north and climb the steps. Use the switch at the computer, then jump to the crate to the south. Jump towards the northeast crate with the megaarmor before it rises. (sector 177)
  3. In the gallery at the south end, press on the glowing west wall and follow the corridor to ammo, a plasma gun, a green armor, and a medikit. (sector 274)
  4. In the gallery at the south end, press on the glowing east wall to find an area with three switches. These turn on the lights in the rooms to the south. (sector 287)
  5. Get the blue key and go back to the hub, then go to a black and gray wall on the south wall that is misaligned. Open it and use the switch inside, which lowers the northeast teleporter in the hub. Take it to get a megasphere. (sector 302)
  6. Flip the switch at the red key, then return to the hub. At the north set of teleporters, enter the leftmost one to teleport to the middle where you can get a super shotgun, shotgun shells, a chaingun, and an ammo clip. (sector 450)
