Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head up the steps at the start and use the switch you find. Head into either of the alcoves on the left wall and use the wall there to find a passage with armor bonuses, health bonuses, stimpacks, and a super shotgun. Both walls count as separate secrets, but can only be opened from the outside. (sector 65)
  2. See Secret #1. (sector 66)
  3. In the central hall of the map, open the north wall to get a chaingun (Hurt Me Plenty or lower), ammo clips (three on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower, one on Hurt Me Plenty or lower), and a box of ammo. (sector 119)
  4. See Secret #3. (sector 120)
  5. In the northwest room, step on the northwest square that is lit to reveal a teleporter leading to a soul sphere. Note that the secret sector is actually impossible to register due to the teleport line being in the way, so only 80% secrets is possible on the map. (sector 204)
