Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the southern end of the map, just on the steps to the gray-floored section, look to the south to spot a lit wall. Use it and a passage will lower back up the steps. The lift in this passage takes you to a computer area map. (sector 27)
  2. After pressing the switch where the blue key is, the platform lowers. Press the next switch in the northwest to reveal the exit to this area. Before exiting, look slightly to the right to spot the section of brown wall that does not have blue on it. Use it, then a wall to the southwest lowers. Take the lift up to a megaarmor. (sector 166)
  3. Once you collect the yellow key, return to the circular river and notice the wall to the northeast has lowered, revealing several monsters in a compartment. In the adjacent room is a computer terminal. By using this terminal, a wall inside the compartment opens up. Quickly run through this wall and collect the invulnerability on the side. (sector 181)
  4. To get the soul sphere at the beginning of the map, enter the passage to at the northwest end of the circular river to reach a room with a blinking rectangle on the floor. Step over it, and quickly run back to the starting area to the soul sphere before it rises. (sector 198)
  5. After using the red key to raise the steps leading southeast, take them up and look out the window on the southwest side of this platform. Look southeast to spot a shootable switch. Shoot it, and a passage on the right side of the platform is revealed. Come back to this passage once you collect the blue key to get a berserk pack. (sector 200)
