Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the west end of the map, raise the bridge to the switch to the east, then approach it. Once you reach the switch platform, go back to the west wall and open it to get ammo, stimpacks, medikits, and armor bonuses. (sector 280)
  2. Exit the lava area at the north end by going southwest, then back into the previous room. Use the switch that opens the east door, then head up the steps and through the northeast opening. This area counts as two secrets, and you can reach the balconies overlooking the lava area as well as the soul sphere behind the cage at the west end of the map by going here. (sector 332)
  3. See Secret #2. (sector 335)
