Help i feel so noob.

i dont know if i am just crappy at this game or what but i cant even beat the first bandit thing on ez... ur allies dont seem to help at all. im playing on novice but it still seems hard as hell... does it get easier? any suggestions?

right now i am killing like 2-3 guys with my allies help, then running out of ammo for my crappy little pistol. i am usually good at fps games, (bf2, css, hl2, etc). so im getting pretty frustrated with not even being able to beat the first mission.

(also what are the little clear etheral blops that pop and when u go near u get all static-y and take damage... at start of course)

You aren't alone buddy. This game is extremely hard and it only gets harder as far as I've got. I think I may actually have to start over from the beginning, because all my saves are in a section I got myself into that I don't think is possible for me to get out without cheating.

Those blobs are anomalies, and they're all over the place. They've been created by the nuclear explosions and so forth in the area. Avoid them.

Besides that, all I can say is go slow. Gradually build up to challenges, and never go charging off anywhere. You'll end up in the middle of Russian military, who evidently are bred of a race of supermen.

I agree. I think it has greatly to do with the fact that hitting the guys in the torso does nothing. You actually have to hit their head to get any damage done.

Can this PLEASE be fixed next patch. Make guys at least hurt when you shoot them.

They do get hurt depending on theyr body armor and the weapon / ammo you use.
Try to shoot them in the head

The only advice i can give you is:

Don't come close, always snipe them...

The game will be a bit hard until you get your first scope and better armor, but after that the game will be easier

thanks guys, on a similar note i was wondering if anyone knew any cheats / console commands / mods that might make it easier. the gameplay right now need some work but im still interested in exploring the world of STALKER and being able to enjoy the game. idealy easy mode should be a walk in the park where one is more interested in the life, the environment and other aspects of the game, but this is not so .. .yet(hopefully)

if u know any cheats please list them or link (to the page that actually shows the cheats not a site that has them) its a new game so im not sure if there are any.

thanks

I shot a guy in the crotch with a shotgun point blank range. Shot me back and killed me instantly, he barely flinched.

Increase player accuracy and damage by 100% (possibly more,) decrease enemy damage by 75% and accuracy by 25%, and then it won't be frustrating.

Not sure why is everyone having issues with this mission. I'm running it on Veteran difficulty and I did the mission possibly 5 times in a row without any problems.

Why I did it many times:
BIG SPOILER WARNING -------------------------------
Because I wanted the silenced AK the freelancer leader had and I wanted him killed (not wounded) by bandits AFTER I completed the mission, and wanted myself alive, and I didn't want to kill him.
END SPOILER -------------------------------------------

I seem to do best when I use the fast ROF SMG (dunno the name), but it's the SMG u get that doesn't look like AK-47 and go towards them and wait in between cars/trucks to kill the close ones off. The SMG just rules at close range because it will stun the guy with so much fast damage at once. It's inaccurate, so you can shoot some of the bandits down with the silenced pistol too if they are a bit too far for the SMG. Also, one of the tricks is to get the hostiles to get busy with your guys while you shoot them down peacefully and quickly. Never make too much noise and stand out in the open to get attention of too many of them.

The garbage is hard, but it gets you to the level you'll need to be at to play the rest of the game, it took me like 5 loads to beat te garbage rush. Use granades to kill them when they come in a bunch. If it doesn't kill them it will make them weak and you can finish them off with a couple of shots, take their weapons and ammo and kill their buddies.

The trick with any auto weapon is to aim lower and let it climb the body from the kickbank and hit them in the head. If you keep aiming for the head with weapons like the AK you'll never hit it from far away. Use small controlled bursts like any other FPS.

Ok, I'm still a bit confused about Garbage area...

I've survived the first wave, without a problem. But now, right after the first wave, there is a whole bunch of Bandits spawn right in the area where I came from (The road that leads to the Car/Airplane graveyard, where you have the main fight)...

I tried loading a few times but every single time, right after I finish the main fight, more bandits spawn behind me, and more shooting begins. I finish the first spawn wave, and by the time I get to the bodies to loot them, more show up.... WHAT THE HELL????
