Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


  1. At the nadir of the stairway to the north of the map, the eastern wall is misaligned. Open it to find a lift with a megasphere and a box of shells. (sector 196)
  2. In the western hallway, the front of the enemies' pillbox can be lowered to access a medikit and a box of ammo. (sector 170)
  3. When you go up the western stairway at the south of the map, a pillar with two switches on it will rise to the west. Press the switch on its western side to lower it like a lift. Take it up to access a platform with some torches and a box of shells. (sector 22)
