Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you reach the upper ledge in the building east of the starting point, look out the window and jump southwest to the area behind your starting point. You will find a shotgun guy guarding a soul sphere as well as armor bonuses to the side. (sector 71)
  2. Go north from the starting point towards the metal wall and look left for a misaligned portion of the wall. Press on this side to retrieve a backpack. (sector 79)
  3. In the area with the large lava river, climb the rocks up to the central building and move alongside its outer walls until you find an opening. Inside will be a megaarmor. (sector 312)
  4. In the submerged lava city, climb the buildings until you reach the one on the north side. Take the lift up to the upper roof, then jump east to the brick building and open the wall ahead. You will find a medikit, an energy cell pack, and shotgun shells. (sector 495)
  5. In the easternmost area, go along the western wall and find a wall that does not have a demonic symbol on it. Press it to lower the wall and reveal an imp guarding some cell ammo. (sector 657)
