Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Climb the steps and jump to the southwest pillar to get an invulnerability. (sector 38)
  2. On the left side, use the steps to jump south to the dead end. When you do this, quickly run north of the steps, east to the teleporter, then north to a switch before it closes. Use this switch and leave to the west, then to the northwest is a room with backpacks, a berserk pack, and a switch. (sector 80)
  3. The switch in Secret #2 will open a wall at the southernmost point. Quickly leave, run up the steps, across the gap and to the soul sphere before it closes. (sector 170)
  4. At the north end, use the switch at the northeast, then quickly zigzag your way west to a lowered lift with a light amplification visor. Ride up, and, with precise straferunning, hop across to the east side to get a health bonus and a megaarmor. (sector 88)
  5. When you get to Secret #4, straferun back four blocks and you will find a switch to the south. Press it and quickly make your way east and northeast to the switch that lowered the light amplification visor. This secret area has a switch that opens the secret exit. (sector 250)
  6. At the east side, head all the way to the northeast end, then face south and shoot the lion switch. When you can get back to the hub, head to the yellow door again and the south room will be open, revealing a FUG2048 and energy cells. (sector 133)
