  1. Head into the cave across the bridge from the start, then head left and open the door to the west. Jump to the next ledge and open the door, then open the northeast wall to find an energy cell and a lift down to shotgun shells, a stimpack, and ammo clips. (sector 119)
  2. From the rock where you got Secret #1, jump southeast, then climb the northeast steps up to a door with a stimpack, a box of shotgun shells, and a switch behind it. Use the switch, then head into the lava at the west end and head south along the lava until you find an open passage to the northeast with shotgun shells and a stimpack. (sector 180)
  3. As you climb and jump your way west across the edges of the hand in the southwest corner, at the ledges dividing the middle and ring fingers, climb up quickly, then climb down on the left side and enter the cave to the right for a teleporter. This leads to shotgun shells and a megasphere. You can pick up the yellow key from here as well. (sector 374)
  4. Head into the cave across the bridge at the start, then head left and open the door to the north. Open the next door, then jump to the southeast. Jump to the west and open the west wall to find a box of ammo and a backpack. (sector 465)
