A Truck named STALINGRAD

It was December in the Zone. The snow was everywhere and the wind
blew behind my back whistling and spraying ice and mist on my goggles.
There were those places found deep in the Zone usually at the farthest
reaches where so many Stalkers were drawn to like a Moth to a Flame.
A place of rumored Treasure and Wealth...endless Wonder and Artifacts.
A place where they were drawn to in countless numbers. The reality was
just like the Moths the Loners ended up the same way. A place of Death.
There were three places in the Zone I knew of where so many Loners
would travel to. All three of them were the same that few if any ever
returned from. I was in one of those places now. It was called Yantar.

I arrived down at the Loner's Camp in Yantar where I found 9 Stalkers.
Veterans, Experts and Experienced there were no Rookies among them.
Two of them here were my friends who I was stopping by to check on:

http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/8738/ygb04pr3.jpg

There was a big discussion going on about all of them assaulting the
Yantar Compound as a Group. I told them that there was no Loot or
Artifacts in there and the only weapons to be found were worn out
Zombie. They brushed me off and didn't seem to believe me:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/6972/ygb02ni3.jpg

The Loners were telling their stories and bragging among themselves
making them boast about the past and what they were going to do next.
A few of them seemed fueled by Vodka while the others just by stupidity.
Despite all the warnings of Zombies and Snorks they were not listening:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/765/ygb01kq2.jpg

Weapons were checked and loaded, Suits and Armor adjusted and
tightened and abruptly the Loners took off spreading about the hill:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/5734/ygb05id3.jpg

I had told a couple of the more levelheaded ones to stay behind
and watch our back and camp. We didn't need to be flanked from
the road. I ran up the hill to catch up with the lead three Stalkers:
http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/9136/ygb06uq6.jpg

With the running and crunching of ice and snow we were not quiet.
This was a terrible idea and plan but I couldn't let them go alone:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/4012/ygb07dv7.jpg

My Mini-Map displayed 15 Contacts which meant we had company:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/5323/ygb08my3.jpg

We crested the hill and found the Road and lots of Zombies.
They were everywhere. I was firing my SVU left and right
and trying very hard to help cover all the assaulting Stalkers:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/6294/ygb09qi1.jpg

Georg Viking fell wounded right at the Gated Entrance:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/1885/ygb10yl8.jpg

I went through my first clip and quickly reloaded. The Zombies
were moaning and spraying bullets everywhere like crazy:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/7100/ygb11vr1.jpg

It was hard to shoot at the Zombies and keep an eye on the others.
I heard yelling and cries for help among the screams and moaning:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/9520/ygb12bg3.jpg

I checked my PDA Contacts and saw there were only four others left.
Three of them were friends who I told we needed to get out of here:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/5240/ygb13hg7.jpg

Suddenly the Zombies seemed to flank us from each side:
http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/5128/ygb14el0.jpg

I ran after the Neutral Loner who was going after that Zombie:

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 2 )

I yelled at Petka Beast that we've lost too many of our Party and
to get the hell out of there and retreat behind me while I covered:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/266/ygb16iz6.jpg

Petka Beast ran behind me as I saw on my Mini-Map two of my friends
had made it back to the Front Gate...unknown number of Zombies ahead:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/3513/ygb17rw4.jpg

I lay down covering fire and was slowly stepping back when it happened:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/38/ygb18ve3.jpg

A wave of pain and fear briefly swept over me...I immediately
switched over to my SVU and sluggishly raised it to the right:
http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/7861/ygb19og1.jpg

Before I could shoot...one of the others had rushed back to help me:
http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/8608/ygb20id3.jpg

I heard him scream and fall as a blast of Psychic Power meant for me
took him instead and I saw the Controller raise his hands for another attack:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8812/ygb21pi3.jpg

I fired right as the Controller knocked aside my aim with his Mind:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/9325/ygb22vx5.jpg

I attempted to aim again and again the SVU was knocked about by him:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4948/ygb23od2.jpg

The Controller was getting closer and I could not get a fix on him to shoot:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4230/ygb24bz3.jpg

Everytime I tried to get him, I kept missing and he kept getting closer:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8008/ygb25ez5.jpg

I put down my Scope and saw he was coming right upon me.
My friends were at the Front Gate while Petka Beast was next to me:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/9826/ygb26nw8.jpg

Suddenly the Controller blasted me with a wave that made me see red.
I stumbled and almost dropped my weapon and struggled to stay awake:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/4601/ygb27ca3.jpg

I could barely raise my weapon and could not even focus:
http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/1447/ygb28dm3.jpg

I heard Petka Beast yelling and firing and abruptly the Controller turned around:
http://img399.imageshack.us/img399/5320/ygb29ea4.jpg

Petka Beast had killed the Controller and had really saved my ass.
I looked at the Mini-Map...why were the others not moving from the Gate?

A Truck named STALINGRAD ( Part 3 )

Slowly my vision cleared and I could think straight. Petka Beast
stood beside me while two of my Friends stood behind. My Mini-Map
still had six contacts meaning there were still more Zombies out there:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/7527/ygb31fj4.jpg

Petka Beast moved slowly towards the left where we both heard a
noise. Suddenly he screamed out and fell and two of us rushed to
help him. As I entered the building I faced an Exoskeleton Zombie
that got him, I killed it and quickly faced more fire from deep within.
I returned fire in the darkness and moved in as I reloaded my next clip:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/3343/ygb32lx4.jpg

I couldn't see where the Zombie had gone... I saw I had only one friend
still alive on the Mini-Map while there were a total of seven contacts:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/2564/ygb33pm8.jpg

Suddenly the Zombified Stalker sprang out from his hiding place.
The bullets were spraying wildly and I did take a few armor hits:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/6892/ygb34sf3.jpg

The Mercenary Zombie wailed loudly and started shooting away:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/4169/ygb35rn9.jpg

One of the Loners had come back to help me as I steadied my aim:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/9395/ygb36ab0.jpg

Even with headshots the "Living Dead" were hard to kill again:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/5507/ygb37jx6.jpg

Finally he fell and I saw there were just two of us left:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/1262/ygb38qz4.jpg

I found where Grishko Professor fell and took his Ammo and Food:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/1562/ygb39gt0.jpg

I looked for the others but could find no one else alive. I still had
more contacts and heard shooting but could not see who or where:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/7043/ygb40sq8.jpg

I moved in deeper and ran into more Zombies:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/4594/ygb41ss3.jpg

I unloaded a full clip and watched it rake up his chest to his face:
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/4937/ygb42sg4.jpg
http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/5628/ygb43ro7.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4563/ygb44mc7.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4491/ygb45sp8.jpg

The Zombies hands faltered, he dropped his weapon
and then seemed to fall backwards in slow motion:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/892/ygb46iy5.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4660/ygb47rb0.jpg
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/4787/ygb48wx0.jpg

I looked at my Mini-Map...there was one green dot still left:
http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/8238/ygb49sc1.jpg

There was a scuffling noise behind me and I quickly whipped around:
http://img370.imageshack.us/img370/6619/ygb50kt4.jpg

There is one thing I don´t understand.
Seriously - I need help figuring this out...

Tejas, do you use ANY kind if mod in your game?
The reason I ask is that I have NEVER EVER seen a Controller attack exept for the very first one you meet in the Agroprom underground.

They just make their moaning noice and blur my screen. But never attack or do any kind of damage at all.

It is kind of boring

Cmdr. Vasily Kutnetz~

Every Day in the Zone is a "Cliffhanger"


Krubarax~

My Game remained totally Unmodded for 7 Months until December 2012
arrived to which I only added the Winter 0.3 Mod. Just didn't seem right
to be bright and sunny after spending so many months in the Zone.

I have been attacked and have had the "Mind-Pull" thing done on me:

- Agroprom Underground
- Yantar Underground
- Yantar above ground
- Army Warehouses

You have to be within the right range for it to happen.
It's a lot more dangerous Underground because you have
less room to maneuver. The biggest surprise I ever got was
when I was in Yantar running on top of the elevated crane when
the Controller pulled me out of my Body and slammed me to him.
When I was thrown back, I snapped back in my physical Body and was
so disoriented that I lost my footing and fell from up high to the ground below.

However I know what you mean about the Controller not being so
deadly when they get right up to your face. They should have made
the Controller be able to maul you with those claws like a Bloodsucker.

Once they see you they will attack.

Hey common
I am not a n00b.

I have played this game since release and I have faced and killed hundreds of Controllers (maybe slight exaggeration )

I have, for the sake of science, seen them from 200 meters. then Stood motionless and just waiting for them to close untill we stand face to face.

They do ZERO damage and they never attack... they just walk towards me, moan and blur my screen, eventually turning it red as they get closer.

Controllers can kill you both at a distance and at close range, only with their psy power.

If check your your inventory, you will see 3 bars: a red one for health, a yellow one for radiation, and a blue one for psy-health. Some people may think the blue bar is a bugged bar for your suit. It is not.

If you play at higher difficulty levels you will see the blue bar drop a bit faster when in contact with a Controller, even without the mind pull thing. When there is no more blue health, you die.

interesting.
As you said I thought the blue bar showed my suit health and that it was bugged (because it always show full health)

I will head out to some controller infested areas and check this out.
Also, when the blue bar reach zero, is there instant death?
As in you will not lose any health but just drop dead?

Can't wait to finish work now to get home and try this out!
