  1. Just before the exit, go through the bloodfall to teleport in an alcove with a radiation suit in the pool of damaging blood east of your position. Now you can explore the large damaging blood area. Head to the northwestern side of the map behind the pillars to find a boat to teleport (it lowers only when you press the switch triggering the final fight). This area is a small platforming section, where the crackling floors count as six secrets. (sector 3243)
