Now go through the doorway to the left (east).
This short hallway ends in a T intersection with closed double doors ahead. Another skeleton arises on the right. You can explode it...
...or run down the hall to the left, jump over the small pool, roll...
...and when the skeleton leaps toward you, blast it into the pool with the shotgun.
There are hallways lined with concealed spikes at both ends of this hallway (i.e., just beyond the small pool and off to the south, where the skeleton came from). You can go either way, but to save backtracking (and not waste the MECHANICAL SCARAB), do not follow the passageway near the pool.
NOTE: If you used the SCARAB here, saved the game, and then came looking for help, follow the alternate path in the footnote at the end of the main walkthrough.
Instead, head to the south end, where the skeleton appeared.
Stand on the scarab tile, open your inventory, select the MECHANICAL SCARAB, and use it to trigger the spikes.
Cross over them...
...and retrieve the SCARAB, since you'll need it again.
Before climbing the wide staircase ahead, enter the small room on the right. Go carefully to avoid the scissor-blade trap in the doorway.
Open the sarcophagus to get some wideshot shells, regular shotgun shells, and a large medipack.
Blow up the skeleton that rises out of the floor to the right of the sarcophagus.
Then exit carefully, running between the blades just as they begin to open.
Turn right, climb the stairs, then continue forward and down the stairs on the other side.
