Always allow yourself to get distracted, unless of course you are about to suffer terminal lead poisoning.

So did anyone have a Friar experience like mine on the previous page?

I'm actually kind of surprised, because I think I've run into Friar in the Agroprom Underground in all but one of my play-throughs. I didn't realize that it was unusual.

I think it's because I always make a few runs back to Agroprom to collect all the AK-74s and MP5s to sell before going to the Dark Valley to raid Borov's base. This includes all the dropped weapons in the Underground. Usually by my second trip down I get the "Eliminate the Bandits in the Agroprom Underground" mission, and he is among them.

One time I accepted the mission to retrieve the Storming Obakan right away, but got sidetracked and didn't get to it immediately. Since the mission was activated, there was an indicator on my PDA map showing the weapon's location.

At first it was in Borov's base in the Dark Valley. I kept checking on it, and watched as it migrated to the fields in the Dark Valley, then to the Garbage, and finally to Agroprom. I just figured that the player's first trip into the Bar area triggered Friar's migration to Agroprom.

I've never run into him in the Wild Territory, though. It's amazing how different play styles have so much effect on the actions of the NPCs in this game.

I guess everyone develops habits and certain ways of proceding through the game. I have nearly always encountered Friar and Poker in the Ag underground. But when you take your time like Tejas is doing here a lot of things can happen. Other NPCs will pick up weapons that they find lying around if you don't get to them first, especially if you are using the ZRP patch. With time and luck they will make it to the other locations.

It may be due to more than one visit to the underground for looting purposes, but I quite often see Friar heading into Agroprom as I'm heading out. On a number of occasions he hasn't been alone - he is often seen in the company of Poker.

I usually avoid them so that I can still get the job to off Poker from Voronin.

I have had one or the other arrive while I was in the Underground. Often I will just clear the place, visit Strelok's hide-out, then leave the way I entered. He's just arriving as I get to the bandit end - and it could be either Friar or Poker. I try to leave without bothering whoever it is: we'll conduct our bit of business later.

I think I used to avoid repeat trips to the Agroprom because of the way
the Bandits attack the Garbage Hanger. I didn't want to get Seriy killed
or the others there. Now my playing style is to move much faster and to
be more aggressive. I try to avoid overloading myself as I did before and
always keep my weight at 49.9 kg or below so I can sprint into action. This
seems to be working as Seriy and all the others ( including 2 at the back wall )
are still alive. Currently I'm on my 8th trip to the Agroprom and am presently
in the Agroprom Underground for the 4th time. Again there are the ordinary
low-level Bandits ( unlike that second trip ) but I did finally get my first set
of Bloodsucker Tentacles. I have never had so much trouble getting some.
As Steelyglint has reminded me, it was extremely poor timing & planning
to offer a mission to kill Poker when you can't get access to Voronin until
you have returned from Yantar. That's as bad as Sid's assassin job to go
get Father Diodor in the Army Warehouses. Most people know to go get
Snitch's kill "Master" Stalker job and Baldy's go kill "Smartass" job at
the 100 Rads Bar prior to going to the AW. Not many people know
that before those two they need to take "Kill the rookie stalker"
then "Kill the "sales representative" and then "Kill the trader
stalker" so then they can get the "Kill Father Diodor" in
the AW so they can go after all 3 at once ( who are
usually with Wolf ). In my current Game, Wolf is
dead and Master already showed up in Rostok.

I think I've only run into Friar in the agroprom underground once- at least, that's how many times I remember doing so. Sadly, it seemed he had had enough of life and took a walk down the electro tunnel...

Sadly, this time around, I'd killed so many in the vicinity of the Underground in my two trips to date, that I can't recall whether any of them were Friar or not.............. If he's meant to be carrying that particular weapon then, so far anyway, he's safe, as I haven't encountered the weapon on anyone yet.

".......but I did finally get my first set of Bloodsucker Tentacles. I've never had so much trouble getting some."

At least you were after the right body part......

Almost every time I head for Agroprom, a group of Bandits spawn at their location in Garbage near the entry point, or I get the "Defend" job as they arrive. I don't think I've ever gotten into Agroprom without taking a couple of lumps first.

While not wanting to turn to the ZSG for fear of spoilers, I could sure use an alphabetical list of who I'm meant to be watching out for, so I had an idea of who I should be not killing until later. Still, even given my experience to date, that might be a long list.
