Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the starting area, head to the crates at the north side and climb them up. Jump to the center tower and onto the side with the electricity symbol on it. Open it to get a computer area map. (sector 136)
  2. In the starting area, head for the northwest corner and use the wall to find a berserk pack. (sector 369)
  3. In the starting area, open the east door into the green armor room, then use the southwest corner to find a switch. This switch opens the northwest corner, allowing you to reach the ledges that open when you collected the green armor. (sector 348)
  4. Head to the south end of the ledges accessible from Secret #3 to find health bonuses. Use the southwest wall for a hidden passage behind the starting point (which counts as two secrets) leading to more health bonuses and a teleporter. The teleporter takes you to two boxes of rockets, an energy cell pack, and health bonuses. (sector 438)
  5. See Secret #4. (sector 476)
  6. In the hall on the west side with blue and gray walls, head to the south end to find a box of ammo, a box of shotgun shells, a health bonus, and an armor bonus. Use the wall to the right of these supplies to find a hidden crate room with medikits. Take either of the northern doors to reach a plasma gun. (sector 258)
  7. In the previous secret, there is a hidden lift on the west wall, which is mostly made of metal. Use this lift and ride it up, then jump to the crate to get this secret. You can then continue jumping down and to the east to pick up a megaarmor. (sector 262)
  8. In the room with rubble on the west side of the map (there will be lost souls here on Ultra-Violence or higher), use the southeast wall and the lift past it to reach a soul sphere and rockets. (sector 342)
