Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the bridge leading to the east side of the map, flip the switch at the end of the bridge, then head east and south towards the red switch. Quickly turn west and use the switch here, which will lower the rocks to the north, revealing a teleporter. Take it to reach armor bonuses and a soul sphere. (sector 226)
  2. In the exit room, head to the right side and press on the large gray face to reveal a teleporter to an energy cell pack. (sector 289)
