  1. At the switch near the red door, lower the west wall and follow the corridor to a rocket launcher. (sector 77)
  2. Use the blue key switches, then go on the left edge of the wall going south, pressing the west wall as you do. Eventually, you will lower a wall with a box of shotgun shells. (sector 34)
  3. From Secret #2, you can jump east to the pillar, then go on the supports to the smaller pillar with a medikit. You can also get the medikit on the other side as well this way. (sector 18)
  4. On the middle support, shoot the lion switch to the south and jump there to get a super shotgun. (sector 32)
  5. In the northwest hall, use the lion switch at the east end, then quickly run back west and south, then to the alcove with the backpack. (sector 104)
  6. In the plasma gun room, lower the right side of the southwest face to get a medikit. (sector 124)
