I experienced the same thing in that situation. What it is though that the game spawns random bandit patrols in the garbage since it's that area's controller. Much like the other places would likely do the same. Anyways, the idea is that once the assault is done squads start to form and out of pure coiencidence seem to converge on that one area. You will find that all the time in the garbage, and probably other places. As a way to show that regardless of what you do, it is mostly insignificant. Such as if you were to go around and kill all the animals in an area, they'd still spawn. So the idea in the garbage is you pick your fights, sneak through and what not. As well, that spot behind the train station is the exit to the military compound you have to and will find bandits there. Don't worry, you kill off those guys and they're gone. And have you also been picking up the weapons and unloading them for ammo?

As I said though, that thus far only appears in the garbage so is an area designed more to keep you on your toes so you can't run through it like you could in Cordon essentially. I've not been through a lot of areas yet but I don't think there is anywhere like Garbage elsewhere. There might be a couple wandering patrols but that's it.

Thanks for information, I'll try to finish off the remaining ones at the train station to continue...

Here is a question, how do you unload weapons for ammo??? I usually just pick up the bullet boxes, and thats it... is there a way to unload a weapon to add whatever is in the clip to my ammo pool?

Yeah, pick the weapon up, then go into your inventory. Right click over the weapon and click unload. Drops out the ammo into your inventory and you can toss the gun. I must admit, I didn't have much ammunition issues in the beginning but then the military units at the bridge were killed off by bandits and my own hand so I had a lot of AK ammo and MP5 ammo. Oh and a possible <b>SPOILER</b> note, when searching one spot for who you're trying to get info on to kill, look EVERYWHERE in the room as there is an item. Don't forget you can break open the cases with your knife, the ones in there contained grenades, medkits and AK ammo for when I did it.

Woland: Actually, thus far it just appears to be the garbage where you encounter so many bandits. So before you ever set out, make sure you have a lot of ammo or light weight so you can just run past a lot of them. Use the foliage to hide you and the trees for cover. After a while the enemies become disinterested and don't pursue you. I must admit, the garbage has quite an excess of combat but once you get past the bar section, you'll have the weapons and ammo to deal with bandits as well as the armour. After a certain point, the bandits become an annoyance and waste of ammo like the mutants/monsters. Though it helps to kill them for the various stashes around, I've found wonderful things like grenade launcher grenades from them or nice artifacts.

Just right-click on a weapon in your inventory and select "unload" from the menu.

I tried that, all it gives me is "drop"

Then that particular weapon is empty for whatever reason. I know it happens, that's where I've got most of my emergency ammo in major fire fights. Just keep searching though it might be weapons dropped previously after reloading the game lose all their ammo.

That's exactly what i am doing but i am not really happy about it. Like i said I like exploration... which is hard to do while running away from bandits or trying to sneak past.

Take the abandoned cars place, i am not worried about loot, and i am done with defend mission, so there is nothing i really need there...But I would love to walk around, check out that gunship husk, go inside the bus, etc. While under fire is not the best time to enjoy the sights

Well don't dispair yet. Like seuta said, there seems to be only few of such "hot spots" the rest of the game seems to be different.

Although I am noticing some spots are clearly designated for combat and some for exploration. That is whenever you stop by the farm were you did you 1st quest, 9 out of 10 you going to find some bandits there, and there are plenty spots like that.

And then there are areas full of artifacts and anomalies but chances of having to find someone to fight there are nil.
