To extend what Daroo (and I; see Edit) said:

1) All controllers have the ranged attack. Most don't use it right away; tube_at_once for the controller defaults to false and is only set true for the Agroprom tunnels controller and the X16 controller.

You have to be a certain distance from the controller (default is 10 meters) and the controller has to see you, even if you don't see it.

To Tejas Slacker's list I will add Pripyat, although I don't know if the controllers are present in an unfixed game. But they all have the tube "Mind Pull" ranged attack.

2) The controller's up-close-and-personal melee attack has no effect on the Marked One at lower difficulty levels.* Your mental health, shown by the blue bar in your inventory and indicated on your HUD by a color-coded encased-brain icon, will drop noticeably at Master difficulty level when near enough to a controller. Once it hits zero, you hit ground.

Yes, Krubarax, death ensues when the mental health bar hits zero, and that's just seconds when you are near two or more controllers at once.

__________
*Hmm. Krubarax, you might not be a noob, but you could be a Novice. Or maybe Stalker (Experienced)...

Edit: Man, you guys type faster than I do. See my post at the end of the first page of this thread where I said the same thing:

Yes, I play at stalker difficult level.
I realize that I have played this game long enough and know enough about it turn it up a notch, but I do not like changing de difficult level during a game... and I have come too far to start all over

Maybe I should make an exeption and try to make it a littel bit harder.
As mentioned in another thread, the zone is basicly a walk in the park nowadays

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 4 )

Bullets whizzed by my head and one ricocheted off my helmet:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/7581/ygb51ca2.jpg

The Zombie was getting entangled in the ladder and moaned louder:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/6067/ygb52ms1.jpg

A few rounds in the face put an end to that distraction:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/2554/ygb53xq0.jpg

I turned around and looked for the others. I had lost track of
how many of us had entered and where some others had fallen.
I quickly found one of my friends, Georg Viking fighting a Zombie:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/484/ygb54kc9.jpg

The Zombie fell and I heard more Snorks coming and someone shooting:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/6622/ygb55ay6.jpg

I told Georg Viking that we needed to get the Hell out of there now:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/3753/ygb56sr1.jpg

We moved towards the Front Gate when we were attacked again:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/7924/ygb57nv7.jpg

I killed several Zombies and Snorks and then found my Friend:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/8168/ygb58uu9.jpg

I found another of my Friends next to an Exoskeleton Zombie:
http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/4954/ygb59ua3.jpg

It looks like everyone here was Dead and I was low on Ammo:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/4538/ygb60ip1.jpg

I looked everywhere for any Survivors of our ill-fated Party:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/4489/ygb61od7.jpg

My last Friend, I found laying right at the Front Gate entrance.
It looks like the Merc Zombie got him as he was trying to escape:
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/5660/ygb62ts7.jpg

I was so overloaded I didn't have room to take his Weapon
and more than anything I wanted to put on some distance:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 5 )

For the first time it seemed I noticed the chill in the air.
My Armor was damaged, I was bleeding and low on Ammo.
I turned around and gave one last look at all my fallen Friends:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/2259/ygb64fm7.jpg

I walked down the Road and then turned towards the swamp where
we had come up. There I found Rus Trasher quite cold on the ground:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/4687/ygb65bq9.jpg

Next to him lay Yashka Eared in his Seva Suit and dropped TRs 301:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/139/ygb66wy4.jpg

They had never even made it up the Hill:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6756/ygb67we0.jpg

I approached the Loner's Camp where I had left the two Guards but
my Contacts showed there was three and one of them on the ground:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5862/ygb68fy6.jpg

Sava Nothing was surprised to see me saying he thought everyone
else was dead. Only one he said had made it back before me wounded:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/8109/ygb69ek1.jpg

It was the only other survivor of our ill-fated Yantar Party.
I gave Alex Agent a Medkit and did for him the best I could:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/35/ygb70hp3.jpg

He slowly got up but walked right past his weapon:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/2401/ygb71zt3.jpg

Alex Agent sat down and started playing a Song for our Dead Conmrades:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/871/ygb72al5.jpg

I quickly looked around and decided to get going:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6096/ygb73ux0.jpg

I told Igoryok Iron the details of what had happened and said
I needed to get some more Ammo and sell some used weapons.
I promised him I would help them get some more reinforcements:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6596/ygb74cn6.jpg

I emerged again from the lower drained Swamp and scanned the
Road up ahead. I knew that the loss of a Controller ruling Yantar
would somehow and inexplicably have someone sending another:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/5665/ygb75yp8.jpg

I climbed up the closest overlooking hill for a better vantage point.
No movement on the road or way down in the Swamp and Mobile Lab:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/4855/ygb76ln0.jpg

I turned behind me and saw the 3 Loners with Alex Agent still playing:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/1889/ygb77vh8.jpg

I only had 48 total SVU Rounds left on me between here and Rostok:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/6127/ygb78zl5.jpg

I didn't see a single Dutyer guarding the entrance to the Mobile Lab:
http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/3306/ygb79gy8.jpg

Man, I think you and I have the same dang weakness: We just can't leave anyone behind.

I have to hand it to you, TS... You really weave a somber tale every time you report from the Zone. Always a great read. Thanks!

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 6 )

Some in the Zone have said that a Controller has to visually see you
first before they can start their Psychic Attack. This is not true as a
Controller can sense your presence from a good distance away. I
was far from the Canyon but suddenly I was being assaulted:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/262/ygb80yg8.jpg

I shakily raised my Scope and waited for several long minutes.
The Controller only now for the first time could visually see me
but we both knew the other was there from a kilometer before:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1162/ygb81bg2.jpg

I thought it would be using the road but it had other plans:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/8360/ygb82mu4.jpg

I fired a few Rounds but it was making me loose my aim and miss:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/7836/ygb83ok0.jpg

I had no idea where or what the Controller was doing:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/6348/ygb84yg1.jpg

It then looked like it was headed towards the Mobile Lab:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1421/ygb85xh5.jpg

I think I had only managed to hit it twice and it was moving away:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/9307/ygb86bz8.jpg

I looked back at the Mobile Lab still seeing no sign of Life:
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/8274/ygb87tt6.jpg

Would the Controller go after Sakharov inside of there?
http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/5280/ygb88rs7.jpg

Abruptly the Controller turned around and headed back:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/3050/ygb89xj4.jpg

I wasn't going to waste any more SVU Ammo and decided to risk
the chance of it's deadlier "Mind-Pull" Attack. I loaded my SPSA-14:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/6227/ygb90ds7.jpg

I thought I saw it ahead as I took careful steps forward in the snow:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9969/ygb91wg2.jpg

The Controller's back was to me as it stood over a Dead Body:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/8905/ygb92nh1.jpg

A wave of Psychic Energy painfully engulfed me and it turned and was
now in my face. I fired my Shotgun and blood gushed from it's mouth:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/7933/ygb93lt8.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2950/ygb94wz1.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/47/ygb95we4.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/6323/ygb96ry6.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/3098/ygb97qy9.jpg

The Controller grabbed me as I felt it's claws dig in and I
shot it again in the face at point blank range as it roared:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2895/ygb98wp2.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/1245/ygb99sx2.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/8943/ygb100lv3.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9293/ygb101qq2.jpg
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2521/ygb102dh7.jpg

Suddenly it was eerily quiet...I could hear my heartbeat pounding and the
smoke from my Shotgun drifted upward and was dispersed away in the wind:
http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/7100/ygb103bw5.jpg

Don't start drinking yet Commander...the Story is far from over.
Technically you're still in the Prologue for what is about to come.

SCAVY~

I'm only using the Winter 0.3 Mod added after 7 Months
to a totally Unmodded Game. Everything you see including
all Men & Mutant Behavior is simply found in the original Game.

You can't but help care for the fate of others trapped in the
Zone like yourself. Coming to the rescue and helping your
fellow Stalkers is the cornerstone of being a Liquidator.
I've seen your work and you should take the Tests.
