Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the east side, head east of the blue door, into the nukage, and use the west wall to find a switch. After using it, quickly run back west, then south up the steps and through the wall. Follow these steps to an area with several platforms, with the one containing energy cell packs and a BFG9000 being the secret. (sector 929)
  2. Enter the building at the north end, taking the lift up. Open the black wall to the north, then the east wall (requires the blue key). Follow the path and collect the soul sphere. (sector 956)
