  2. When you enter the second lava cavern, jump to the rocks to the north and head southwest for a blur artifact. (sector 3179)
  3. At the easternmost end of the lava cave, the yellow keycard counts as a secret. (sector 3124)
  4. At the city, enter the northeast building and take the long lift up. At the top, head south, then shoot the button at the northeast corner wall. This opens the south door which has a medikit, a megaarmor, and energy cells. (sector 2683)
