Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Use the switch to open the door at the start, then in the next room, run northeast to the other upper ledge. Go east from there to the wall and open it to find a box of shotgun shells and a box of ammo. (sector 284)
  2. Approaching the blue key reveals a closet dead ahead with a revenant. Open the wall at the back of the closet to find a berserk pack. (sector 454)
