Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Raise the lift that leads to the last switch that leads to the red key, then get to the west side of the lift. Use the switch to lower it, but instead go southwest to another lift that lowered. Ride it up to get a medikit and partial invisibility. (sector 251)
  2. Head east from the rocket launcher and use the switch to access the southern steps. Take them up to the wooden block, then carefully walk north and onto the ledge below. The switch here raises a wall east of the steps. Go back there and follow the passage to find rockets, a medikit, armor bonuses, and a berserk pack. (sector 617)
  3. In the southernmost area, use the switch at the east end, then go around clockwise to the lift before it rises to reach a soul sphere and a teleporter. Take the teleporter to get to a box of ammo, a box of shotgun shells, and a green armor. (sector 819)
