Other points of interest[edit]


  1. As you go west, you will see a caged room with a partial invisibility and health bonuses. In order to reach this room, you need the blue key, which is behind its own cage next to the blue door accessible by taking a left at the fork. You need to execute a grab in order to get the blue key, and when you do, open the door to get the secret. (sector 89)
  2. Take the door north of Secret #1 and follow the hall until it bends north. You will see light shining on a vent at the inner curve. Open this vent to find health bonuses and a megaarmor. (sector 112)
  3. When you make it outside, run southwest across the damaging water through a thin passage. The passage ends in a lift, so take it up and get past the zombiemen to reach another megaarmor, an energy cell pack, and an invulnerability. (sector 155)
