Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the cross-shaped area, take the southwest tunnel and use a terminal here to find a switch. This will open up the nearby canal. Follow it, entering a room to the side and stepping on a panel to get a BFG9000, then following it all the way to a soul sphere. (sector 167)
  2. At the northeast section of the sewers, in the room west of the one with diamond-shaped pools, use the wall with the vent above it to open one behind you. Inside are boxes of ammo and boxes of rockets. (sector 201)
  3. In the center of the map, grab the computer area map and use the wall behind it to get a backpack. (sector 202)
