Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The passage leading south from the start area has a secret door to the west (it lacks the grey texture at the top that the rest of the wall has), leading to a soul sphere. (sector 130)
  2. Heading north from the blue key room, turn right, then left, then left again. On your left are two sections of green wall - these are secret doors both leading to the same room with a megaarmor and an invulnerability. (sector 21)
  3. At the south of the level is a switch which lowers the second of the three walls guarding the blue key. North of this switch is an east-west corridor, at the centre of which is a secret door on the northern wall (it has some red markings at the bottom) leading to a backpack. (sector 65)
  4. Go through the door south of the blue door to reach a room with six health bonuses. Directly north of these is a secret door (it has some red markings at the bottom) leading to an outdoor area with a plasma rifle, a berserk, a soul sphere, an armor and an invulnerability. There is also an energy cell pack in multiplayer. It is possible to leave this area via a path to the south-east. (sector 162)
