Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Drop into the water at the start, and go around the structure to the left that had just opened. The switch here lowers the six ledges on this structure. After hitting it, go to the central one at the south end and ride it up. Open the wall here and go through to teleport to a soulsphere on Ultra-Violence and above, or otherwise a berserk pack. (sector 18)
  2. At the exit, look to the right to find a damaged section of wall. Go through it to get a megasphere. (sector 201)
  3. In the northeasternmost area, go to the northwest corner and press on the metal wall here to reveal health bonuses. (sector 204)
