Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you enter the stronghold, head northeast to the bars and a door will open. Nearby, you can get a computer area map. (sector 410)
  2. At the large area on the west side of the stronghold are multiple columns. Find the one with a candle near its north wall and use that side of the column, then head towards the northern switch and there will be a compartment to the east. Inside is a light amplification visor, ammo, and a backpack. (sector 10)
  3. In the waterways at the center of the stronghold (south of the room with metal squares, head into the left corridor and press on the south wall that looks different from the others. Inside is a soul sphere. (sector 448)
  4. After opening the northeast bars at the stronghold entrance (using the switch mentioned in Secret #2) go to the wooden area behind them and south to an area with four bookshelves. Head to the east side of this room and use the skull switch to lower all of them, then get on the southwest bookshelf and use the lion switch at the top. This will open a door to the south leading to a chaingunner and a soul sphere. (sector 531)
  5. Now head east from that area until you reach an area with a large set of steps. Go down them but midway down use the north wall to find a secret area with a megaarmor and a berserk pack underneath crushers. (sector 201)
  6. When you enter the eastern area with the shacks that have the red and yellow doors, you will hear a lift lower. This is actually the terminal to the north. Get on it before it rises to get a soul sphere. (sector 48)
  7. On the ledge where the blue key is, use the wooden wall between the two candles and head south, using the next switch to continue onwards. A switch is on the west wall, which will lower the bookshelves to the southeast, containing boxes of rockets and energy cell packs. (sector 779)
