Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the blue key room, use the switch to lower the wall to the north. Look at the bottom of the wall here and notice the blue light at the bottom. Use it to reveal a backpack west of the blue key. (sector 255)
  2. Open the hall with the plasma gun at the northwest end of the map. Once you do this, take the steps to the east and step on the green plate. Quickly go back to the courtyard, through the hall to the north, and into the room at the north end. In this room, you can find a berserk pack and rockets. (sector 344)
  3. In the northeast room, look at the green rectangles on the north wall. The one above the torch has a small rope on its east side. If you shoot this rope, you will lower a green armor on the stack of crates on the west side. The green armor is available for only one second, so you should stand on the stack of crates while shooting the rope. (sector 394)
