Three Mile Island

If you've skipped the first mission there are very few side-quests in the game. It seems only those that are tied to specific characters are present, except in the Swamps.
Correction-bump of the above:
This time I found I was offered side-quests in Red Forest both by Duty and the Stalker squad at Dark Yar. After doing the Tank Machine Gun quest for the Stalkers, I was offered side-quests by Freedom in Military Warehouses, and after doing all of them the Garbage Bandits offer me their side-quests too. Perhaps finishing the Tank MG quest enabled the rest?
BTW one of the Dutyers in Red Forest had an exosuit and machine gun, never seen that before.
