Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the southwest room of the main building is a room with two pillars. Use the left side of the northern pillar (this side has a brown wall) to lower it, then hop to the adjacent pillar with a backpack and shotgun shells. (sector 352)
  2. At the south-central end of the map near the nukage river, take the steps up and go behind the crates for a megaarmor. (sector 694)
  3. In the nukage area where the blue door is, climb the steps to the blue door and onto the ridge on the north side next to the nukage. From there, hop to the next ridge above the steps leading down, and go across this ridge to the next set of steps. Run and jump over this one too, and you should see a soul sphere. Time a jump carefully to reach this secret. (sector 147)
  4. In Secret #3, open the west wall for armor bonuses and a computer area map. (sector 159)
