Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northwest end of the left half, flip the switch to activate the pumps to north, which lower the nukage level. Drop in once it hits the bottom and enter the small room to the north which has a soul sphere and a stimpack. (sector 1022)
  2. Enter the teleporter maze section and head west three times, north once, and west once to enter a room with medikits and a megaarmor. (sector 1199)
  3. Enter the teleporter maze section and head left once. Head south, west, north, west, and south and you will eventually get to a plasma gun and energy cell packs. (sector 1301)
  4. Enter the teleporter maze section and head south once. Head west, south, and west three times to enter a room with a box of shotgun shells, a box of rockets, and a box of ammo, which counts as two secrets. (sector 919)
  5. See Secret #4. (sector 928)
  6. Enter the teleporter maze section and head east twice, south twice, east, north, west, and south to get to a room with a secret message and a switch that opens the secret exit. (sector 1482)
  7. The switch in Secret #6 will open the door that leads to the secret exit, which is in the red section just across from the teleporter room between the sections. You need all six keys to access the secret exit. (sector 915)
  8. This secret and Secret #9 are tiny sectors in Secret #1 on the right side, but both are unreachable due to them being against the walls and being too small to register. (sector 1804)
  9. See Secret #8. (sector 1805)


Due to Secrets #8 and #9 being too small to register, the maximum amount of secrets for this level is 77%
