Something odd about the Cordon|
Cordon can be a very exciting level, while you can just chill with the Rookies in their various camps in the level, killing all of the Military provides endless fun until you finally leave and let things calm down (the Military finally comes back to their positions, etc.)
I've had Rookies randomly die in the Rookie Village as well and it is most likely due to a lone Military guy killing them. I lost Tolik AND Nimble to this. What's odd is that often nobody else even seems to have noticed and there's not always even a dead Military guy left behind, so I don't have a clue how this works. Sometimes NPCs really DO drop dead for no reason though, most notably in the Garbage in the three-man STALKER camp to the east of Seriy's Hangar.
Wolf has been dead in my game for months but I still clear out the Boar Lair and destroy the Fleshes at the Farm just to honour his memory.
One fun thing to do in the Cordon is to kill all of the Military at the Checkpoint and at their base at the very south. Then go north and kill all reinforcements that you meet along the way. Next, get on top of the roof of the building that contains the Level Changer to Garbage (can be a bit hard to do but you need to climb the yellow staircase south of it, jump on the white border, jump over the tree branches ahead of you (hardest part,) then walk along the border to get there.)
After this, kill all Military Reinforcements from behind as soon as they walk out. They will obviously be notified of your presence if they hear or see you kill another one of them, and can sometimes be notified just from fighting a STALKER who gets in their way, but it should still be easy to make a very large amount of bodies pile up.
