Other points of interest[edit]

At the start of the level, there's a security armor near the ship to the east. Continue going east to find two energy cells and some secluded stairs that lead to a room with a plasma gun. Taking it will trigger a revenant ambush.


  1. At the first dropoff, head northwest, then south when you can. Follow the health bonuses up and around, going north. There will be a health bonus at a dropoff to the east. Ignore that dropoff and head north and east to another dropoff and a health bonus. Jump southeast here to land on a megaarmor. (sector 2223)
  2. At the west end of the map with the bridge, raise a pillar with a candle leading left and cross it to the platform to the left. Run left into the wall to get a soul sphere. (sector 7008)
  3. At the southeast end, enter the water, head north, then west to the super shotgun. Head further west and into the waterfall with an energy cell pack and a medikit. (sector 6839)
  4. At the southeasternmost part of the map, attempt to go up the steps, then quickly head south and shoot the skull to the left to lower the window. Down here you can find shotgun shells, health bonuses, and a megaarmor. (sector 7063)
  5. At the southeasternmost part of the map, ascend the steps, then go to the southeast corner of this area. You will lower to a box of rockets and a medikit. (sector 6863)
  6. When you appear at the northeast part of the large bridge area, quickly run southwest around the large structure to the left side with an energy cell pack. (sector 1953)
  7. In the waterway northeast of the first dropoff, head north but look at the west wall to find a skull through the translucent waterfall. Use it and ride up. A backpack appears to the northwest. (sector 6846)
  8. Once you open the door southwest of the first dropoff, enter and use the skull on the right side to lower the teleporter on the other side. Wheel around to this teleporter and enter it. Lower the pillar for a soul sphere. (sector 2994)
  9. After fully constructing the bridge leading to the exit, cross it, then get on the green platform to the left. Jump west to the energy cell pack. (sector 1812)
  10. At the exit, enter the northwest cave of crushers all the way to a soul sphere. (sector 7034)


Two obstacles (Things 4815 and 4816) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they do not actually appear in the level.
