Usually i never bother with them, Duty guy goes down to hunt for artifacts.
So i leave them be
Wish that they had a trader there instead of mechanic, since forester can fix guns...

Seems I got the dialog option to threaten the surviving ambush Stalker again, and as a result he gave me Strelok's stash coordinates a second time. Is this a known bug? Don't know what I've done to make it happen...

Yes, once awakened the poltergeists disappear after a while. Your safest bet is to stay out of their way (and that of any loose objects).

He is a trader, in fact he's the only one in the whole game that (very rarely) offers you artifacts.

How to survive Red Forest

There's no advantage to fighting the Poltergeists. Usually I run in there
alone ( before going to Dark Yar, getting the Tank Gun or looking for the
Lost Party ) just to fight the Renegades before the mutants kill them and
to grab the Compass. Then I leave with it and much later return with Duty.

Finally the Freedom squad moved into Red Forest (without engaging the nearby Dutyers). Wonder what took them so long?

Seems Red Forest and Army warehouses are connected in more ways than one. Ever since the Forester missions started, Monolithians have arrived from the Barrier (possibly each new Forester mission causes new waves, or maybe it's just my timing). But once I took the Compass mission, I instead get mutants spawning everywhere:

- In southern Red Forest pseudodogs have started spawning, headed straight towards the Dark Yar Stalkers, who will now never survive the Red Forest for sure. Once I also found a couple of snorks on the western side, close to where the Bloodsucker use to be, but alas the Witcher Circle stalkers had all perished so I had to load my previous save.

- In Army warehouses lots of mutants have started spawning around the Bloodsucker Village (pairs of bloodsuckers, dogs, boars, snorks), many with Dark Yar as their target (which means they'd have to go through the whole Red Forest first).

Red Forest Mutants have to pass by Dark Yar on the way to Garbage.

True, but the ones in AW shouldn't have to take the Red Forest detour since they can go to Garbage directly through the southern AW level changer. But the paths of faction war squads and mutants have always been convoluted in CS...

Because of the blockade position at the Garbage exit to the AW, I don't
think it was ever intended to be a mutant path of travel from the AW.

Squads tend to take the path of least resistance where possible, and don't engage squads with a power greater than theirs unless forced via script. Because of the high ranking Stalker squads in AW, and the low rankings of mutants, the game picks a path for mutants that doesn't involve having to go through the stalker squads in AW, which is generally through the Red Forest and Yantar.
A simple check to see if the attacking squad is monster (the mutant scation), and to artificially set their power so the power condition passes might see mutants attempting to go from AW to Garbage directly, as it is a shorter path to most of the zone than Red Forest/Yantar.
Only the siding door at the Garbage/AW lc will stop the mutants. They don't use lc's like the player.
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
