Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Next to the switch on the east side of the map is a window. Get to the right side of this window and look south and slightly east. You should spot a shootable switch. By shooting it, a wall near the switch opens up. Go past the wall to find a soul sphere. (sector 28)
  2. In the nukage room with all the columns, go to the southwesternmost column and look at the wall on its northwest side. You should see a portion that does not match. Use this and the eastern wall will open. Out here, you can get armor bonuses and an invulnerability. (sector 41)
  3. On the right side of the map, when you are on the ledge east of the nukage, look towards the computer on the west side of the nukage. There should be a button on the right side of this computer. Shoot this button, then cross over the nukage river to the west side. Near the switch that lowers the lift to the north, two monster compartments will lower. Enter the one on the east side to find the same opening from before and you should reach a megaarmor. (sector 62)
  4. On the blue-floored room east of where the blue key is, go up the jagged staircase and when you reach the ledge, a lift lowers behind you. Quickly run back down the stairs to the blue-floored room and west to the teleporter, and you should make it onto a ledge with a computer area map. (sector 151)
  5. In the northern computer room, there is a switch on the southeast side. Push it to lower a lift. Run up the steps from where you came from and go south to the lift. This lift takes you up to a berserk pack. (sector 194)
