Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the large valley on the way to the red key, go to the west side and climb the rocks, then jump to the fence. Jump back west to the rocks and maneuver your way east. If you look inside the cave, you will spot a soul sphere and a backpack. To get both of them, get to the nearest high rock and jump to the metal ledge below, then head east and you can reach the cave they are in. (sector 760)
  2. At the southeast part of the map is a walkway with crates. Midway through the area, look south and flip the switch to lower a crate concealing a berserk pack and an invulnerability. (sector 1185)
  3. After opening the three-key bars, head all the way west and use the switch, then the next switch ahead of you. Now go to the southeast corner and you will find red and green terminals. On the green terminal, look for a section that is red and use it to open the red terminal, where you can get health bonuses and a megaarmor. (sector 1556)
  4. At the east end of the map with the square-shaped hall, make your way to the east side with two side areas. At the northern one, there is a hidden switch on the south edge. Use it to reveal a lift leading to a megaarmor. (sector 2004)
