  1. At the red tower, jump onto one of the southeast pillars and shoot the switch on the east wall. This raises a step to the southeast leading to a plasma gun. (sector 244)
  2. In the room with a lot of crates, jump onto a crate to the east with shotgun shells and press on the beige crate to the east to find a megaarmor. (sector 326)
  3. At the northwest side of the east building, flip the switch at the end, then backtrack and use a switch to the north before leaving. Head out to the nukage and get the megasphere in the southwest corner. (sector 488)
  4. In the hall past the crushers, lower the gray wall to the north (east of the fence) to get an energy cell pack. (sector 649)
