Sacramento Suburbs icon

The Sacramento Suburbs is the first normal zone a player is introduced to after going through the intro zones. It has a high level of trashcans, safes, 2 gun bags, and more that keeps it interesting for new and old players alike.

Secret passagesEdit

  • Redcastle Building Terrace Garden - Head south east from spawn until you cross the river. Head south east past the sandbags and enter the building to the north along the south east entrance. Go up the stairs, then go west (ignoring the two rooms). The chest is at the north most corner.
  • Delta-9 BSAC / Experimental Lab - Head south east from spawn until you cross the river. Go south east and then north east at sandbags. After you run into a fence, follow it east until you can enter. Follow the building paths to the west, and then take the elevator down. The crate is at the north east most area.
  • Sacramento Valley Station - Head south east from spawn until you cross the river. If you follow the south east road from spawn all the way to a park (bypassing the store in the way), the pathway to the secret passage is a bit hidden, as the path is a curving green trail, which leads to an entrance to train tracks. The crate is on the west side.
