Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the top of the lift at the northwest end of the main hall, take the teleporter, but reenter the one you came out of. Now open the wall to the north to get shotgun shells and an energy cell pack. (sector 118)
  2. At the highest possible point at the southeast end of the main hall, jump towards the nukagefall in the center and you should land onto the soul sphere. (sector 174)
  3. From the teleporter mentioned in Secret #1, approach the block, then the area to the west will open up. Here, open the southeast wall with the large crack to find a medikit and a computer area map. (sector 214)
  4. In the northeast room, walk through the nukagefall at the south end to get a radiation suit, armor bonuses, and a megaarmor. (sector 255)
  5. Open the wall behind your starting point to find a rocket launcher, a box of rockets, and a blur artifact. (sector 282)
