Added in

Cave 1 has 3 entrances: one near the southeast rim of the sinkhole, and two surrounding a small Cannibal Village south from the sinkhole.

Inside Cave 1 is a wall that can be blown up with explosives to open a path leading to Cave 9. Additionally, the northern part of Cave 1 blends into Cave 3, which is accessible via a rope up that will lead to the first submerged area of Cave 3.

Go left after entering entrance 1 to avoid fighting the Armsy, this will lead directly to the katana with no enemies on the way.
