Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go all the way down the nukage river in the north part of the map to find a teleporter. This takes you on top of a crate at the starting point. From this crate, make a jump to the crate with the soul sphere. (sector 12)
  2. Open the yellow door on the right side of the hallway and press on the misaligned wall in the northeast corner for a megaarmor. (sector 196)
  3. At the nukage river in the north part of the map, there is an alcove with a medikit. Open the wall just to the north of it for a radiation suit and a switch, then go east along the nukage river to find a super shotgun. (sector 217)
