Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northeast end where a megaarmor is, open the west wall to get a radiation suit. (sector 1133)
  2. At the long hall at the south end of the map, head west until you find a green torch. Use it and it will go through the wall. Follow it and it will disappear, with a switch behind it. Use that switch, then head east and north in the hall until you find a dropoff point to the west. Drop there to get a computer area map. (sector 687)
  3. Take the teleporter in Secret #2 and head south to get a megasphere, shotgun shells, boxes of rockets, and energy cells. (sector 592)
