    tourists? only true stalkers should be allowed into the zone.
    The call of the Zone is not excluded from man's yearning for adventure.

    Anyone in the Zone is a Stalker whether he wants to be one or not.

    WHAT THE FUCK ARE THESE?? I DON'T UNDERSTAND!!!

    (I think it's Recoil/Handling and Reliability of the weapon)
    (Just messing with config files)
    cam_dispersion = -0.16; 0.5
    cam_dispersion_inc = -0.06; 0.5
    cam_step_angle_horz = -0.02; 1.5 [0.73 in the rest]

    zoom_cam_dispersion = -0.12; 0.5 [0.093 in the balance]
    zoom_cam_dispersion_inc = -0.07; 0.5
    zoom_cam_step_angle_horz = -0.02; 1.0 [0.505 in the balance]
    , an increase of the variance in percentage at the maximum wear
    fire_dispersion_condition_factor = -1.5; 15
    ; increase in wear when firing the queue
    condition_queue_shot_dec = -0.0001; 0.0013
    , an increase of wear with a single shot
    condition_shot_dec = -0.0001; 0.0011
    ; chance to misfire when worn more than misfireStartCondition
    misfire_start_prob = -0.0015
    ; chance to misfire when worn more than misfireEndCondition
    misfire_end_prob = -0.015; 0.03

    Update:
    Did a shitload of Monolith missions, rich as fuck, armor is 40%, repairing it is expensive, but I don't want to spend any money on it.
    I literally had 20kg's of artifacts, carrying them around was a bitch.
    Fast forward, I had to say goodbye to my Abakan ; still using Sig SG 550 and having 800 bullets of 5.56 calibre.

    Also, VOG 25 jumping grenades are SICK.

    As always, shat my pants multiple times during the game, especially at nights.

    Are the sniper rifles any good in SoC? Ive read on the survival guide that in late game scoped weapons are almost needed to kill exoskeleton wearing baddies.

    Also, do gas masks (when part of the suit) do anything but look nice?

    The "sniper" rifles are not really worth it since they fire off-mark too often and the ammunition is way too scarce to be ever really useful.

    Not only that but you have to jump through too many hoops to get one in the first place. Scoped 9x39 rifle (the VSS / "Vintar) is probably the best endgame ranged weapon in SOC.
    The 9x39 caliber has mad penetration which is really useful for ripping through the heavy armour worn by the opposition past the Army Warehouses. If you can't score a good amount of 9x39 and a "Vintar" / AS VAL (SA-Avalance in the game) , a G36 with armour piercing rounds is very good as well.

    Do NOT go to Red Forest or beyond without a good supply of AP ammo. Hint : AP ammo (and 7.62x54r of sniper rifles) will also go through light covers like trees, thin steel plates and wood panels.

    Edited:

    In case you still want to try them out, buy a little ammo for them prior to going to Red Forest and pick up a rifle from one of the many Monolith snipers. In Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat the SVD becomes useful again (in the former because the NPCs take much damage, making headshots important and in the latter due do the increased combat distances)

    Also, do gas masks (when part of the suit) do anything but look nice?
    In SoC and Clear Sky they just look nice but in Call of Pripyat the gas mask is used separately as it goes to a different slot than a helmet which means that you can use a gas mask or a tactical helmet regardless of the suit (except for suits like SEVA / Exo which have integrated helmets which cannot be swapped out)

    The Vintorez is fucking boss in all three games, once I get one I never let go of it. Ever.
    Same for the Groza 5.45.
    It's funny, my weapon progression is pretty much always the same..
    BM16 > AKS-74u > AK-74 (and varients thereof) > Groza, Vintorez, and the winchester pump shottie. (and then it never changes)

    the g36 sucks in SoC, I like it in the other 2 games though. Then again, it might be because of the terribad animations in SoC.

    (also, I'm talking about vanilla ballistics )

    Good thing it doesn't have the sniper rifles' scopes, the bullet always hits to the right of the crosshair.

    You aren't supposed to be Sam Fisher in this game. The stealth in S.T.A.L.K.E.R is about getting into a good combat position before the shootouts start. Moreover, the A.I can also hear you. If you crouchwalk in the darkness and don't use your flashlight, you'll notice that stealth is viable to some degree, you'll just need to learn to apply it correctly.

    Also, is Call of Pripyat your first S.T.A.L.K.E.R game ?

    Edited:

    Yeah, you could argue that stealth is somewhat broken in the base game as things like swinging a knife makes a sound and loading a game might make everyone suddenly aware of your presence.
    Please also note that weapon suppressors are not that effective and most of the time function with weapons that make use of subsonic ammunition.

    L.U.R.K for Shadow of Chernobyl tries to make stealth somewhat plausible (and more attractive since the weapon recoil is strong and enemies are very accurate) but at the moment it's not something you should rely on.

    It is possible to sneak, it's just really weird what the AI will and will not detect.

    Some times you can walk right up to them and knife them in the noggin, other times they'll shoot at walls in your exact direction.

    In SGM 2.1 is anyone having problems with the MP3 player? Every song on there for me is 0 seconds long and when I looked at the game data every track is 6kb large and consists of a "bleep".
