Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The indoor area that leads to the southwest part of the perimeter has you hopping across rocks to get to a switch at the southeast end. From the switch, jump to the rocks to the west until you can go up. A pain elemental and lost souls guard rockets, backpacks, and a megasphere up here. (sector 205)
  2. At the right side of the perimeter, head along the flesh walls until you find lava. Wade across it quickly and when it dead ends, go through the dead end to pick up a megasphere. (sector 1263)
  3. Get onto the high ledges at the south end of the perimeter and make a jump to the south. Here you will find a shotgun, a backpack, a stimpack, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 1317)
  4. At the west end of the perimeter, you can climb a circular tower up, then make a jump northwest to a ledge with energy cells. (sector 1422)
