Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the building at the start and open the wall with the yellow banner to find a backpack, a chaingun, a super shotgun, and lots of ammo. (sector 31)
  2. Go along the eastern path from the four-way intersection in the blue key part of the map. When it bends north, press on the brick wall in the inward corner to reveal medikits, a green armor, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 695)
  3. In the far southeast portion of the map accessible through the southern part of the four-way intersection, go behind the switch at the top of the steps to find another switch. Press this switch, then go back to the intersection. At the corner just before you reach the intersection, there will be an open passageway leading to a room with lots of supplies, as well as a shortcut to the eastern path. (sector 942)
  4. Once you have pressed both switches behind the red door and blue bars, go back to the four-way intersection with the red and blue triangles, then head north. You will hear something lower. Go back south through the intersection and back until you see the red and blue waterfall, where a ledge has risen up so you can get on the platform. Walk through the waterfall to appear at the fountain outside near your starting point. You will land on top of a soul sphere, but also if you get off of the fountain, go back to the door at the start to find a berserk pack in a nearby alcove. (sector 9)
