  3. In the westernmost area, after lowering the outer wall, head to the northeast side and press on the gray wall to the east to find a berserk pack and a green armor. (sector 667)
  4. In the area with three keys, head to the east courtyard. Use the wall just south of the marble column to take a lift up to a plasma gun and energy cells. (sector 673)
