Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the red key arena, go to the northeast corner and use the pentagram switch, then go to the southwest to find a soul sphere. (sector 995)
  2. East of the temple entrance is a torch and a dead marine. Use the torch and a rock will lower to the south containing a super shotgun. (sector 1174)
  3. Head west from where the yellow key is to the red key bars, then head north and open the door. Use the lift to the right and ride it up, then head south across the gap. Take the marble steps down and go south as much as you can to the switch. Head back to the marble steps and to the west will be a hole you can fall into. Do so, and as you head south a door opens containing a super shotgun. (sector 1283)
  4. This secret is a hidden area filled with FIREBLU textures, and requires three switches to reach. The first is before you reach the temple. Just after you lower the first gate to the temple, go to the first rock over the lava, then look back north and press on the backside of the pillar which has a FIREBLU switch. The second is just after the red key arena in the marble area with the bridge to raise, just to the right of where you enter. The third requires you to go west from where the yellow key is to the red key bars, then north. Open the door and use the lift to the right, but instead of riding it up, enter the room behind it and go to the northwest corner to find the FIREBLU switch. With these three switches pressed, open the door south of the red key bars to find a portal, which leads to the secret FIREBLU part of the map. As you venture through this area you will find a soul sphere, rockets, and a megaarmor. (sector 1311)
  5. Behind the throne past the yellow bars are some rockets. Press on the back of the throne to reveal a megasphere. (sector 1862)
