You will play better with practice. I haven't read all the thread, but keep in mind that novice level does not only make it easier to kill you. You will have a harder time killing others too. Higher difficulty actually means your skills get better.

This is an interesting statement. What skills are improved by increasing the difficulty level?

Learn to deal out head shots and you won't need to go for chest attacks even on master. Besides if you make chest hits reach 2 for armored guys, you'll kill anybody with bad armor in one hit anywhere in the body, which sucks big time.

Not actually a "skill", maybe shooting skill, but it is my understanding that with higher difficulty you will be killed the more easy, but so will your enemies too when you fire at them. Maybe I'm wrong, this is just something I have "allways" believed. Just happy if someone can deny or confirm

You can select from four different difficulty levels in the drop box here. In order of easiest to hardest these are: Novice, Stalker, Veteran and Master. The higher the setting, the fewer useful objects can be found in the game world, and the greater the probability that the enemy will hit you when firing on you. For example at Novice level, the enemy only have a 20% chance of hitting you, while at Master they have a 50% chance of hitting you with each shot.
You can also adjust the difficulty on the fly, so if you find a particular area too hard then turn down the difficulty temporarily. I play on master difficulty, only because i found the others to easy.

Novice is easy as it is.
yes the first fights are hard but as soon as you get a AKs-74U and some real armor you can fight any one.

I too would like Novice to be a litle easier. I gather that the hit probability thing affects the player as well as the NPCs. Is there a Mod out there anywhere that would lower the accuracy of the NPCs but not the Player? I find that if they are anything further than fairly close, I can empty mgazines at them and the dont drop. The NPC detection is set too high IMO as well.

I appreciate that some here may be awesome Stalkers who can kill the entire map on Master with their eyes closed, but I'm not that good and I dont want to spend hours replaying the same bits over and over in ana ttelpt to become an expert. Its a game, not a caling, lol.

I'll persevere if there isnt any way to make it a little easier, I've finished it once before. It
s such an amazing game.

The Game may seem real hard at first but it is not as easy as a lot of
other Games. You can't just stand out in the open and fire a few shots
at the Enemy and expect them to die. To begin with you have to use
cover and get behind things to protect you. Try using crouching and
low-crouching to make yourself a smaller target while at the same time
that increases your accuracy while shooting. Learn to use Bandages
and Medkits quickly by hotkeys so when you take damage you do not
die quickly. The weapons you start with are weak and not as accurate
so try to get better weapons from looting the dead. Don't just shoot at
the Enemy anywhere but concentrate on headshots that are a lot more
effective and deadly. Keep in mind that being killed so easily is actually
what makes the Game so fun because it is NOT easy and makes you
use your brain to think about your attack and not just standing out in
the open and shooting the Enemy with ease. Get in the habit of making
Manual Saves often so you can go back to them if things really go bad.

Good Hunting Stalker.

Indeed, if you're skilled enough and have the right equipment, then you can take out anyone with just one hit to head

w3rd!
I wish they (devs) would stop dumbing down games, even on Master SoC is easy if you have only a little skill.
so instead of asking for a mod to make the game easier, how about picking your skills up or go back to CS (counterstrike)
may seem a harsh comment, but meh!

What is up with all these people wanting easier games.

I mean, do you want to run through them in ten minutes or what?

I`ve said it once and I`ll stick by my previous comment "GO PLAY PACMAN"

busetibi & Vintar~

How can you be without some understanding and sympathy?

Think back to when all of us were Rookies and we met Petruna and
his two men to go to the Bus Depot to rescue Nimble and we all got
our ass kicked by the Bandits before we realized how hard the Game
was. Sure we had our crappy Shotgun and PMm Pistol but the Bandits
with Vipers and AKs tore us a new one. I remember I couldn't even
see where all of them were and I thought wow!... this is a tough game.

For this very reason we all know that you will die quickly in the Zone if
you act like Rambo. You must use your brain to think about your angle
of attack, use cover and get better weapons. So please do not be so
hard on newcomers and try and remember we all started as Rookies.

Another tip is not to overload yourself carrying over the weight limit
otherwise you will get out of breath and have stamina problems. Just
carry what you need so you can move quickly and have room to carry
away your loot. The Zone is a learning experience that takes some time.

I realize you have played SoC before but my guess is it was probably a year
and a half ago and you have forgotten if you have been playing other games.
