The Zone is my campground.

I have just done another mission for Veronin.
He told me to see a Guide to escort me to the Freedom camp, but we are all in Outskirts now so it was not needed.
Gave password, planted the bug, grabbed the flash while Chef was picking his nose around the corner, told the guard it was the other guy who took the flash, and ran out of there.
When I got to the exit of the compound, where the Lenin statue is, there was a Merc.
I put my crosshairs on him and he is waving at me, so I don't shoot.
I decide to slide up next to the building for cover and move toward him.
My minimap shows he is alone.
He is red hostile but has his weapon shouldered and takes no action against me, so I continue.
When I am about 10 feet away from him, five of his buddies appear out of thin air. Teleported in or something.
I walk backwards and give him five 12ga shells to the chest, turn around and run back to the building where there is another Merc shooting at me.
He gets the other five shells in my mag.
There is no time to reload, so I equip the AK and dust the other four dickheads from around the corner.
I assume they were after the flash drive, but I saw nothing on the Wiki about this ambush.
Maybe I look cute in the Freedom armor I was wearing for this mission.
Veronin says I am a Lieutenant now.

Personally view that mod as a cheat. Lower vegetation means artifacts are far easier to spot. Combined with third person view and it's an exercise in 'low-hanging fruit' selection.
BTW the X2 Lab part of the wiki needs serious revision. Between it and configurator corruption/crashes it's a religion loosing experience.
