Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Just before the large lava-filled area to the northeast, head behind the dark gray walls for a radiation suit. (sector 178)
  2. At the hub, take the left stairs up, then head slightly to the left of the fire cage on the south wall. Press on the misaligned wall to reveal a room with two revenants and a switch, which lowers a lift. Take it up and collect the invulnerability for the secret. (sector 538)
  3. Open the blue door and go through the lavafall. In the next area, run through the lavafall on the right to get the soul sphere. (sector 564)
  4. Open the blue door and use the nearby gargoyle switch, then run to the southwest lift. Ride it up and use the next switch, running directly north to the next lift, where this switch will lower a lift leading up to the bridge. At the top, head north into the corridor. At the northernmost bend, lower the north wall to get a megaarmor. (sector 567)
  5. Continue along the corridor past Secret #4 and jump to the ledge with the skull switch. After using it, go back to the bridge and head north again, this time going left. In the next room, press on the satyr block in the northeast corner to find ammo and a light amplification visor. (sector 569)
