A different perspective .....


---QUOTATION---
I was expecting a lot more free roam, but right now I am in an enclosed area, the swamps, kinda being told what to do.


I guess I'm almost out of the swamps, but I have to clear out this farm with a crapload of enemies, and I only have the pistol and shotgun or hunting rifles, as I am out of ammo for my AK.

---END QUOTATION---



First, you have already recieved some great advice from some of the most famous, or infamous, STALKERS to inhabit these forums. Now some input from a more humbled and less experienced STALKER .

There is a lot to do, and find in the swamps. You said in another post that you had sold many guns to the CS faction.

Now this is a personal preference, but I hope that you kept at least 1 MP5/ variant. The VIper can be found in a couple of places, and is a weapon that I will not attempt to play STALKER without.

Actually, there are a couple of Vipers in the swamps, and while it is again personal preference, having 1 with the standard 9x19 ammo, IIRC, you can modify 1 so that it uses the much more readily available 9x18 ammo.

Now remember, that your character, is an elite STALKER. He may not remember it, but he is. So while his memories may be lost to him, his experience and abilities would not be totally lost to him. Personally, I do not agree with the fact that he is so poorly armed and equiped, but the game is what it is. Having said that, I see the link I am about to provide, as an old "marked" and "notated" map that he had hidden on his person, that he discovered after he woke up, and that he now uses to locate items.

Here is a link to that map. Use it, dont use it, it is up to you. But your quest for arms, ammo, and other goodies will go a lot smoother if you do use it.

http://digilander.libero.it/requena/stalkercs/stalkercs_map_zone.htm

*Note, 2 vipers in the lower left part of the Swamp (the far left lower corner)

Last thing, the swamps, while an intergral part of CS, maybe you should be looking at it as what it is at the start, a training area, with lots of goodies to be had.

BTW, welcome to the forums, and to the Zone, good luck, and may the Zone have mercy on your soul.

thanks for all the tips!
I did do a bunch of upgrades and now hanging around the Machine Yard.
I did upgrade my Viper to 9x18 and right after I found 9x19 ammo in the Machine Yard lol. Well, maybe I find another Viper for it.
I'm gonna do as suggested and take my time in the swamps until I get even more gear.

You do not have to use the map I pointed you to, but if you do, you will not have to hunt for it, just go get it,

hint look at bottom left most part of the map. 2 vipers shown.

yeah, got another viper,actually 2 didn't even have to look at the map, they're everywhere.

got more ammo for the AK but then I gave part of it to a guy as a side mission...hope it wasn't a stupid idea. There are some renegades I wanna take out by the machine yard, but kept getting killed, so I wanna take all of them out with the scoped AK.

When NPCs say go to squad leader for the reward, do they mean the clear sky base or where?

If you didn't pass to the Cordon try to earn some money at Swamp. It maybe boring but you can make "Encampment near truck" secondary mission in the Swamp continuously. First wave you will encounter 4-5 renegades near the truck. When you killed all of them you will hear their radio call. A moment later, second renegade squad will come from the northern base between lawns. There have 2 big rocks. You can cover yourself and make a magnificent assassination too. Hunting Rifle is best solution for the renegades. You can get this weapon from renegade which is worn brown uniform. Also Clear Sky members used too. You can do "Encampment near truck" secondary mission at the Machine Yard All you need to do is kill the renegades, get their weapons and sell to the Clear Sky trader in the Clear Sky Main Base. So i recommend this little mission first time and it will be a little training to you. This secondary mission always updates when you finished successfully and didn't encounter any bugs. In midnight renegades don't spawn near the truck and you can't do this secondary mission so keep in your mind and wait the morning or roam around.

Earn a 20000 RU by selling enemies weapons. When you passed to the Cordon visit Sidorovich at Loner Village. Check the "Sunrise Suit" in his inventory. I don't know well but I think each prices of items change according to the game difficulty. In master difficulty i paid near 15000-20000 RU to get the süit.

In Cordon you can visit Military Base at the southern section. This guys always spawn at there. If you trust yourself you can get a big money by killing the militaries and selling their weapons to the Sidorovich. Sidorovich gives you great money for selling militaries AK/74 and AC96 rifles. For 9x18 pistols i recommend the Fora-12 pistol in its class. It has a magnificent accuracy and a larger magazine to other pistols. And i can say it has a little more damage. (I don't know but usually i like using the pistols in this game. When all pistol ammunition finished i use the great weapons.) For rifles normal AK/74 (Not AK 74/2U) is useful in its class for me. Because it has a little more accuracy. You maybe deplete your 5.45 ammunition easily. Against the militaries you can use Hunting Rifle to them for alternative solution. It has a great accuracy then the Sawn-Off and with the shot rounds it maybe lethal for the militaries. So don't forget this.

Actually i don't recommend to visit the militaries with your "Leather Jacket" süit. It has a very poor protection. So each military attacks will be lethal for you. If you visit and kill all militaries at their base 2 or 3 times and sell their weapons you can easily buy the "Sunrise Suit" from the Sidorovich. I always use this suit at other Stalker series and don't need the high class one.

I wrote long post and maybe i make a mistake in the grammar. Sorry if i did it.

Thanks for the tip. i do want to try to get those renegades a few times, but without wasting good ammo. Once I managed to kill all, or so I thought, and then i think there was one left who dropped me.
But i wasted precious AK ammo on them.

I found and sold my first artifact, quite exciting!
I'm currently reading Roadside Picnic too so the game feels that much more immersive.

I can't get the renegades by the truck without wasting more ammo and medikits than it's worth it (I'm playing the vanilla on the Stalker difficulty level).
But I'm gonna try for more artifacts...love how each anomaly is different.
The graphics of this game, even vanilla, sometimes look like a work of art.

No need to use AK ammo for the renegades, shoot them with the Viper instead...

I got them once, but they didn't have good stuff. I made it to the cordon, but getting killed by the machine gun. Went back, getting killed by the guys in the ruined village. WTF is going on?
