Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Inside the yellow key area, go to the southeast door and enter the room. Use the television in the back of the room to reveal a switch. After pressing this switch, exit the room and several compartments on the sides of the yellow key area will be open. Lots of enemies come pouring out of these compartments, but you can find some supplies in the compartments as well. Three of these compartments count as the same secret sector. (sector 463)
  2. In the southwesternmost room, go through the door on the north side and head west all the way to the wall. Look at the brown column here to spot a small green button. Push this button, then head to the southwest part of this room where a step has raised allowing you to head to the other side. There are energy cell packs hidden behind the conveyor. (sector 770)
  3. In the room east of the southwesternmost room, go near the computer terminals on the south side and approach the cage in the corner. Look northeast and shoot the blue switch here, then run to the opposite side to find a teleporter. This teleporter takes you to a building above the pit on the northeast side, where you can find a berserk pack and a soul sphere. (sector 928)
