Hint - there is a STALKER suit in the VERY beginning of the game if you search for and break wooden crates.

That's another thing - there are sometimes very valuable items in crates. Break them with your knife.

The same goes for the small blue suitcase looking containers.

Crates are random, but most containers will have loot only if you get the loot info first (mostly from looting corpses).
That particular suit is only there if you get the info for instances IIRC.

You need to talk to Wolf so you get a pistol, but it isn't in a stash, just a crate. There every time.

You can't actually get to it either, but you can shoot the crate from the outside and the armor will be within reach.

Oh I remember that crate. Didn't remember that there was a suit in it though.

Heh the second time I played Stalker I completely forgot you could break crates for the first couple of hours

What are anomalies? That beeping was one of the things that confused me to no end.

They are just fields, some visible, some not as visible.

They can be whirling areas of air, bubbling pools on the ground, shimmering spheres.

You have to look for them, and the faster you hear beeping, the close you are to the anomaly. They have different effects, from tossing you around, to just straight up damaging you, to shooting jets of flame.

They will severely damage you or kill you outright. Best to pay attention and avoid them. You can get good at just stopping in your tracks, and stepping left or right.

If the beeping gets quicker, try stepping the other direction. You can get a feel for the beeping and learn to quickly avoid them.

What weapons are good in Call of Pripyat? I've been mainly using a modified viper w/ silencer, a sniper I found on top of a train and some shotty I picked up. Any suggestions?

GP 37 is one of the better/best guns in any of the games modded or not, but you don't usually see that till later. I never really found shotguns that useful in the STALKER games, they just aren't as effective vs people. It's to bad because I love to use shotguns in most games, but I guess realistically they wouldn't be that good vs armored npc's. Other than the Eliminator in CoP, oh boy do I love that gun.

TRs-301 is another good Nato rifle, easier to find and I guess in CoP it isn't very durable, but it is a good interim weapon, and should hold you until you find the GP 37.

Basically any of the NATO rifles tend to be good, better accuracy/damage. But Nato ammo is harder to come by, still not to bad though. Viper is the MP5 I think? It's more of a sidearm than an assault rifle that you would want to use for main weapon.

Also you probably only want to keep 1 main rifle, and a sidearm(pistol) to conserve weight. Or you could do a main rifle + shotgun/sniper combo, with no sidearm which would be alright but still abit heavy.

CoP is awesome though, once you get an exosuit + the weight reducing artifacts, you can really carry a heavy loadout.

Also to answer my own question, the Oblivion Lost mod was translated somewhat poorly and hardiness = endurance when it is referenced in the PDA.

Vintar BC is by far my fave weapon in all the Stalker games. It's challenging to use at first due to the bullet drop, but oh-so-satisfyingly fun once you get used to it and start landing headshots on running enemies and dropping them in one shot.

Some of the top-end upgrades for it in CoP are sweet, too bad you can't get them till you get one of the third-level repair kits in Pripyat. I also like that it's quiet, sometimes you can snipe dudes and no-one even notices.

I only carry a shotty (I like the Chaser) when I'm heading into an area w/lots of snorks like lab X-15 or Red Forest (if you take the shortcut) in SoC. Regular shot (not slugs) works best on snorks I've found, better than guns.

I like TRS-301 as my second weapon, esp. once it has scope and grenade launcher on it. Nice and versatile, decent at close or mid-range, lots of ammo around for it. Sometimes I switch to GP37 in SoC (depends on how many of the grenades I have for the TRS ... if I have a bunch of grenades for it, I keep the TRS), but in the other two games it's not as superior to the TRS as it is in SoC.

The Gauss, of course, is nice to have if you can get ammo for it, but takes some of the fun out of sniping that the Vintar has on account of there's no bullet drop and it's one shot-one kill no matter where you hit the target pretty much.

The Tunder rifle in CoP once you upgrade the speed at which it fires ... that thing can seriously spray some death at close range ... that's a fun gun to mess with if you have the dough laying around to upgrade it.

They changed that to a Merc suit (not quite as good) in one of the patches, but ... yeah.

It's pretty hard to find, you have to get clever w/some rooftop jumping and solid searching skills ... and you have to knife or shoot the box it's in
