Other points of interest[edit]


  1. On the ship, go to the backside and flip the switch, then quickly go back to the front and you can find a soul sphere in an alcove near the yellow key. (sector 89)
  2. One of the crates on the ship is a metal crate. Use either its left or right side to find a box of rockets. (sector 819)
  3. Use the wall to the right of the temple entrance for a secret passage to a berserk pack. (sector 815)
  4. Enter the temple with the yellow key and grab the rocket launcher, which will cause walls to open around you with imps in them (also some revenants on Hurt Me Plenty or higher). Enter the second alcove from the left on the south wall and use the wall here to find armor bonuses and ammo. (sector 784)
  5. Take the brown of the two teleporters at the hub, then through the open door to the south. Notice the star patterns on the floor and use the wall where they are to find a computer area map, medikits, and a megaarmor (not on Ultra-Violence or higher). (sector 277)
  6. On the way to the blue key, grab the plasma gun to open the door to the west. A super shotgun is in the hall. Press on the north wall just to the east of the super shotgun and follow the path to the switch which will open the next secret. (sector 471)
  7. Using the switch mentioned in Secret #6 opens the wall where the super shotgun is, revealing a box of rockets, a box of shotgun shells, and two medikits. (sector 670)
  8. Go west from the hall with the super shotgun to the scarab mural and open it to get a megaarmor. (sector 766)
  9. In the outdoor area at the north end of the map, use the darker rock wall in the southwest corner to find a soul sphere. (sector 420)
  10. After the red and blue switch bars, go around the block to the east side, then notice the four faces on this wall. Use the second one from the right to reveal a teleporter taking you outside of the boat where you can get a megasphere and an energy cell pack. (sector 530)
