Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After getting the blue key, return to the S-shaped hallway and at the lower bend you will notice a new compartment open behind the terminal. Approach this compartment to find a chaingun and a megaarmor behind a forcefield. Make sure you approach the forcefield. Afterwards, go along the S-shaped hallway until you reach the blue door, and notice that one of the vents on the left side looks different than the rest. Lower this vent (this will not work if you had not approached the forcefield) and follow the path to a lift. Ride it up, and you will be above the compartment. Slowly approach the gap and a red switch will appear in front of you. Shoot it to deactivate the forcefield so you can claim the chaingun and megaarmor. (sector 205)
  2. At the lower left reaches of the ship with the sides looking out into space, open the door with the green insignia to reach the crew quarters. Press on the leftmost vent to find health bonuses and a lift with a backpack, which leads up to some ammo and a chaingun. (sector 387)
  3. At the northwest reaches of the ship, there is a section where two invisible troopers attack you. Press on the southwest wall where they came from to find a box of shotgun shells. (sector 430)
  4. On the easternmost staircase in the yellow key area, go through the green light to get a soul sphere. (sector 615)
  5. After entering the yellow key area, head back to the rectangular hallway and head to the northwest corner. Get rid of the revenant in the way and press on the wall behind the medikit for a switch. This will open up the middle of the rectangular hallway, which has a megasphere over lava. (sector 667)
