Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you get the yellow key, cross over to the south and open the yellow door, then go all the way around to the next yellow door. Go to the next ledge and when the wall opens up, take the teleporter on the left to the opposite ledge. Open the door here and clear the hall, then go towards the bars on the west side. A lift lowers when you approach them. Quickly run to the middle of the hall and to the north where the lift is. Ride it up and head around to get an energy cell and a plasma gun. (sector 761)
  2. Drop into the water at the central part of the map and head northeast. There will be a large rock column with a lion switch and a gargoyle switch on it. Go upstream a bit, then onto the rocks on the right side, which is on the other side of the cage where the berserk pack is. From here, shoot the gargoyle switch, then get on the other set of rocks northwest from the column. As you go through the opening, a lift lowers ahead. Go straight across to the secret room with a plasma gun, an energy cell, and health bonuses. (sector 889)
