Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Open the south doors from the teleporter hub and head east and north. Use the west terminal to open a shotgun behind it. (sector 1113)
  2. In the north end of the main intersection there will be two terminals. Use the north one to find a berserk pack behind it. (sector 421)
  3. Head east of the main intersection to the second southern terminal (the one closer to the east) and use it. This will open the southern wall to the east of the terminal. In this secret you will find some ammo, a rocket launcher, a green armor, a plasma gun, and a soul sphere (the last two are not on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower). (sector 87)

Technical information[edit]

Inspiration and development[edit]


In the south-eastern classroom, one of the learning pods teaches you about "the inner workings of the transmatter grid and how it synchronizes," referring to the device controlling the teleporter at the start of MAP28. In the beta versions, the pod was about "the inner workings of the flabberstan and the importance of keeping it maxtorized."
