Weapon and armor roundup for master level playthrough

From CoP to SoC and now returning to CS, I can say that it's hard to play SoC without features such as weapon and armor upgrades so I have stopped playing SoC for now.

I am curently abusing CS on Master Level difficulty and It feels like I'm playing this game for the first time. Ammunition is scarce on this level and in many instances I was tempted to buy some when my ammo dropped to single digits units. I completed the main quests and sidequests in each level and moved along.

My goal was to balance factions attitude towards me and to stay neutral.

My only stash is in Bandit base

Bulat armor feels just like rookie suit and has no bullet protection but works great against mutant attack though.

Before I procede to Limansk I need some weapon and armor recommendations to bring along.

Edit:

I don't use any mods. Clean game.

Try to get a seva, it's the best when at tier 3. You can ditch the shotgun, its not really useful. An abakan is better than the ak imo, so perhaps make a save then try getting and upgrading it fully, then do some..... "tests". And then your really set. If you feel like getting it, the pkm kicks ass in some of limansk's areas.

I was thinking about upgrading an abakan. I always used it before, but never think that could be final level capable... I'm concern more about reliability of both weapon and armor since from limansk forward is combat skill only.

Yeah Seva sound very apealing.

Thx

SEVA has the best durability in the game, fully upgraded, second only to the Exo's.
Akaban is more accurate than the Ak, but degrades quicker, and has a wider spread. If your after reliability, stick with the ak.

Bulat has 60 AC and 45% bullet protection by default; beaten only by the Exo. Exo skeletons have more AC, but less bullet protection, while the Duty Bulat has more buller protection (50%). I suppose it feels like the Leather jacket in terms of slots, but thats about it.

I usually go through limansk and onwards with a Sunrise fully upgraded for combat, TRS upgraded for sniping, and a VLA with a scope, plently of medkits and bandages, 2 Bubbles, 1 Snowflake, 1 Firefly, and a Goldfish in my slots, with another 3kgs of artifacts that I can swap in and out. And about 20000 ru.

Very neat inventory, like what I would have.

You're lucky you're neutral, otherwise you can't fully upgrade the SEVA.

Well I beat the game... Master Level

I honestly tought that from Limansk forward it would be harder but actualy was easier than previous levels, I don't know, maybe because I was prepared

I used:

Seva - Armor full upgrade
SA "Avalanche" - Flatness full upgrade
GP 37 - Flatness full upgrade

Artifacts

Bubble - 1
Wrenched 1
Gravi -1
Flame - 1
Snowflake - 1
FireFly - 1

I only used like 3 medkits, 2 in limansk and 1 in hospital, Snowflake once while chasing Strelok in NPP

Dezaster~

Hopefully you got the Veles Detector and the Gravi Artifact in
Doc's Cave in the Marshes before you left it for the first time:

The CS-1 Suit is the 2nd best in the Game and I always carried
one with me once I got my Environmental SEVA before Limansk:

I like to make Veteran Rank before leaving the Marshes for the
first time and have a fully upgraded CS-1 Suit with it's 60 BP rating:

With an Environmental SEVA and an RP-74 always fully upgraded
before going to Yantar, I could stand right next to Lefty helping him:

I collected a nice array of weapons and traveled around mostly in
the Environmental SEVA switching to the CS-1 for Combat & Mutants:
http://img686.imageshack.us/img686/2190/mo5sn3.jpg

I think the most Artifacts I got before going to Limansk was 63 but
I had to give up the Compass and I couldn't take them all with me:
http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/3258/63artifactseg1.jpg

As I always say the way to win the Faction Wars is to not take sides:
http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/6964/sept10november10tb1.jpg

Once I went to Limansk I gave up the CS-1 Suit and had Limpid
upgrade a 2nd SEVA that I call an Armor SEVA with a 45 BP rating:
http://img686.imageshack.us/img686/9279/redbridgett5.jpg

It couldn't carry as much weight so I couldn't switch to it every time:
http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/5448/anarchyloadxp4.jpg

Since you could get a Bullddog at the Bandit House in Limansk you
really didn't need to carry one there like I did the first time. Going
through you start really shedding all the extra stuff you don't need.

Wooh ! How is that even possible? Leaving the swamps the first time as a veteran. You must have killed over 2K Renegades.


I'm not so sure about CS-1 Suit being the second best. It can hold 3 artifacts, but durability is very poor and degrades too fast, Armored Seva on the other hand is very durable and reliable...

I also think that Master level tests everything from armors to weapons their true potential.

When I played the game on Rookie level I beat it in Stalker Sunrise Suit and Akaban without uppgrades nor artifacts.

Edit:
Also, I never used Bullddog or RPG in any of stalker games, I like only precise weapons
