Secrets[edit]

  1. This secret is on the rock near the rope bridge seen when you reach the canyon, where a revenant (Hell knight on Hey, Not Too Rough or lower) will guard a soul sphere. To reach it, enter the cavern to the southwest that leads to the blue key, and go until you see the first spectre. Another one of these will emerge from a broken wall to the southwest. Take the teleporter here to reach a cave with imps and shotgun shells, and you can cross the rope bridge to reach the soul sphere. (sector 40)
  2. Open the blue door and head straight north until the path curves into a brown room. Head straight back into the previous room (east) to hear a lift lower (you will probably hear that first time while entering the brown room), then southeast into the passage (the one where the wall was mossier) before it closes back to find a backpack. (sector 193)
  3. From the ledge in Secret #2, make a running jump southeast to the high ledge on the eastern side, then enter the small cave to reach a megaarmor. (sector 324)
  4. In the northernmost room, pressing on the terminal behind the berserk pack will net you four energy cells. (sector 316)
