Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you reach a hall with chaingunners in square compartments, all of the square compartments count as one secret. However, most of them will teleport you to your death. The only ones that you can safely enter are the southwest one and the two at the north end. (sector 30)
  2. Enter the northeast compartment and use the back wall to open the wall in the northwest compartment, which has two secrets and a switch. (sector 56)
  3. See Secret #2. (sector 57)
  4. Use the switch in Secrets #2 and #3 to open the east wall in the northeast compartment which has another switch and two secret sectors. (sector 58)
  5. See Secret #4. (sector 59)
  6. After you finish the lava spiral, you will teleport to a place with three secret sectors, lots of zombiemen, and lots of teleporters. The teleporters will all kill you, unless you go to the south set of teleporters and enter the fifth one from the left on the west side. Also since one of the secret sectors is the set of teleporters, it is inaccessible due to the teleporter lines. (sector 129)
  7. See Secret #6. (sector 130)
  8. See Secret #6. (sector 131)
