Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head around the southern side of the fortress to find an armor. (sector 145)
  2. West of the fortress is a cavern network. A large skull switch is supposed to open the barriers to the rest of the cavern, but the backside of this switch opens up a short tunnel that leads to a soul sphere. (sector 258)
  3. At the north end of the cavern network, there will be a large pool of blood. There is a tiny piece of land in this blood pool that has a megasphere, but look out for chaingunners when you grab it. (sector 315)
  4. Carefully drop from the starting point onto a berserk pack. (sector 420)
