  1. At the southeast of the outdoor blood lake, there is a circular mark in the skin on the wall. Push it to reveal a chainsaw and a supercharge. (sector 189)
  2. At the north of the tunnels after the yellow key door, the southern wall bears snakeskin instead of warped faces. Walk through it to find a rocket launcher and a chainsaw. (sector 162)
  3. Immediately after said tunnels, the southernmost room has a candle set into the wall. Push the alcove it's in to open access to an elevator, leading to seven armor bonuses, a backpack, and a berserk pack. (sector 42)
