Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Open the door at the start and turn right. Enter the first door you see, and go all the way to the end and use the lit wall. In here will be a backpack, two rockets, and a berserk pack. (sector 219)
  2. Open the door at the start and turn left. Ignore the door along the way, but turn right towards a lift and lower it. When it is lowered, hug the right wall to go through and find a partial invisibility. (sector 318)
  3. At the west end of the brown sludge area, unlock the door with the red bar on it and enter the red key room. Collect the red key, then go around the terminal to the north and use it. Go back down to the sludge area and head north to find a green armor, an energy cell pack, and an invulnerability. (sector 385)
  4. Drop into the water at the yellow key area and enter the small passage to find a stimpack and a megaarmor. (sector 512)
