Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the northwest part of the map, take the east steps and go towards the north window. Look west for a switch to shoot. Head south after shooting it, onto a ledge, then east and southeast to get a soul sphere. (sector 54)
  2. In the red key area, take the northwest steps and head east a bit, then look south. Shoot the satyr switch to the south, then head south from where the red key is to get a green armor and rockets. (sector 526)
  3. At the southwest part of the map, climb some steps to the north and head west to where a medikit is. A hidden switch is here. Flip it then head northeast to a staircase going down. The door ahead will open revealing a mancubus and a megasphere. (sector 698)
  4. Head behind the exit to find a soul sphere. (sector 835)
