Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Inside the building with the large mural, you can lower one of the walls on the east side to get an armor bonus, a box of rockets, and a rocket launcher. (sector 122)
  2. Inside the same building, take the steps to the west. In this area, go all the way to the northwest corner and lower the wall here where two boxes of shotgun shells are. Use the lift you find to get a health bonus, an energy cell, a plasma gun, and a green armor. (sector 151)
  3. Enter the exit room and approach the exit switch to hear a door open. Quickly leave the exit room and go back to the starting point to find the door open. Enter it for an energy cell pack and a megasphere. (sector 43)
  4. In the exit room, lower the wall east of the exit switch to find a health bonus and a backpack. (sector 163)
