My safe space
No offense taken here Tejas.
I just wanted clarification on the mission, which was 'Collect the Loot', not 'Take the Loot from the Bandits'.
So when approaching the area and taking fire from Bandits, my usual response would be to return fire and take them out, but I want to be everyone's friend this game.
So I used a previous save and took MaxChill's advice about sneaking into the house from the north side.
When I grabbed the case, the Bandits started shooting and I thought they had seen me. It was actually a group of wild boars that killed all 5 of them!
Back to the Swamps to schmooze with Clear Sky some more.
Nice. One thing you can count on in the Cordon is that any non-military NPC who doesn't disappear when danger is near (e.g. traders, repair techs, and Valerian) will be killed by mutants or enemy NPCs before long.
If you'd like to make some easy money (by my standards, anyway) at this stage in the game, kill the military at the base and then take their weapons and sell them to Suslov at the CS base. The military AI is highly exploitable due to their propensity toward prioritizing the camp jobs at the road entrance of the base, and there's no reason to worry about relation with military in the game.
