Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the central structure at the northwest part of the map, then make your way to the southeast structure in this area. In this room with the boxes of rockets, head to the east side to hear a lift lower. Drop out of this structure and head south to get a berserk pack on a block before it rises. (sector 30)
  2. Head to the hall north of the starting point and head to the super shotgun. Look out the south window to find a switch in the distance. Shoot it, then return to the starting point and go through the open door to get a soul sphere. (sector 89)
  3. At the northernmost hall, use the switch on the right side, then go to the northeast section of the map. Head north into the room with the spider mastermind as quickly as you can, then up the steps and on the gray lift before it rises to get to a high platform with a megaarmor. (sector 101)
  4. Enter the central structure at the northwest part of the map, then make your way to the southeast structure in this area. Jump south to the nukage and head further south, then take the last path west to get a soul sphere. (sector 248)
