Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head north from the start, then east and use the south bookshelf to find a rocket launcher boxes of rockets, and armor bonuses. Head through the corridor to reach a soul sphere. (sector 52)
  2. Drop into the water from Secret #1 and flip the switch, then go all the way to the left side and ride the lift up. Grab the boxes of rockets and take the next lift to reach a megaarmor. (sector 54)
  3. See Secret #8 (you need to reach Secrets #4 and #5 to reach this secret as well). (sector 148)
  4. Head east from the exit and in the hall, look towards the north wall. When you spot a wall that has a different upper section, use it and you can find a box of rockets, a computer area map, a medikit, and a blocked-off switch. (sector 159)
  5. From the northeasternmost room, head south, up the steps, and to the west end of the ledge. Look south and shoot the switch, then backtrack a bit and take the west path. An open area here contains partial invisibility, a medikit, and another switch. (sector 235)
  6. To the left of the center of the map is a caged-in area with armor bonuses, an energy cell pack, and an invulnerability. To reach it, go to the hall to the south of that area and press on the metal wall that does not have a light at the bottom. Doing so opens the northern wall in the caged-in area. Quickly go left, then north, and east to reach it. (sector 280)
  7. Near the northwest part of the map is a bookshelf in the middle. Go to the east side of this bookshelf, which has skulls on the wall, and look south. Shoot the switch, then climb the steps to the west and into the open area to the north for a plasma gun and a backpack. (sector 358)
  8. Enter Secret #5 and use the switch. Drop into the room to the north and the wall ahead will lower. On the platform at the top, the switch reveals a plasma gun behind it, but also reveals a hidden switch in the room to the west. After using this switch, quickly run there and use that one. This switch will remove the bars to the northern switch, accessible from Secret #4. That switch will raise a block near where the yellow key was (which is in the same room). With that block, you can then reach the yellow key and boxes of rockets. This area counts as two secrets (includes Secret #3). (sector 373)
