Other points of interest[edit]


  1. From the southeast area with crates, take the steps to the west up to a plasma gun. When you reach it, look northeast to spot a green button in the distance. Shoot it to open the wall below it, then enter the nukage there and head around the block to get a soul sphere. (sector 38)
  2. At the northern area of the map with crates, head to the northwest corner and use the switch on the crate there. After using it, leave to the southeast, then enter the courtyard nearby to get a chainsaw and health bonuses. (sector 106)
  3. When you reach the zigzag bridge at the southwest end of the map, head to the north end of the bridge, then look southeast. It can be hard to see, but you can shoot a switch in the distance there. If you do shoot it, a wall to the east opens up. You can get a berserk pack inside. (sector 174)
