Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the main offices next to the beginning area, find the switch and use it to lower the blue wall with Class 2 imps to the east. Go on this blue wall and the south end will reveal imps in a small room. A skull switch is in this room, so use it to reveal another one on the blue wall. This will raise the blue wall again to another switch. Use the switch at the top here, then quickly run to the northeast part of the area to find another switch, which will lower a blue wall between the blue and yellow doors. Use the switch at the top here, then quickly run back to the first switch you used, which has lowered revealing a stimpack. Ride it up to reach a box of rockets and a rocket launcher. (sector 245)
  2. In the last computer room past the yellow door, use the western terminal to open a corridor leading to health bonuses, a rocket launcher, and rockets. (sector 178)
  3. In the same room, use the terminal at the north end to open a vent to the east with doppelgangers and a switch, which reveals a teleporter back to the main offices. (sector 250)
