I like the FN F2000 but the fact that it only appears in the Sarcophagus and beyond in SoC makes it impossible to use for me without cheating as I refuse to go beyond the Point of no Return. I can't stand the GP 37, TRs 301, SGI 5K, IL86, etc at all.

Personally I just use the SVD, AS Val, VSS Vintorez, Groza OC-14, SPAS-12, SIG Sauer P200, and USP Compact north and west of Rostok (not all on the same trip obviously.) The AK-74U, AK-74, AN-94 Abakan, SVU, SPAS-12, Makarov, Fort-12, 5.45 Groza, for places south of Rostok.

It really annoys me that in vanilla STALKER there is no Saiga-12. By Call of Pripyat there are THREE different combat shotguns, not even counting unique variants and not one of them is the Russian Saiga-12 for some odd reason.

True, but hey. At least the Saiga you get with SoC mods aren't mirrored.

Alright well, I actually thought about getting to the roof in my first playthrough, except rather then jumping from the yellow stairs to the fence, I jumped to the BMP, which is alot harder imo. I got from there to, well the ground as I jumped and missed the roof . Anyway I did manage to get up there by jumping over the tree as you said CoH.

Anyway I still haven't seen any military aside from LT. Babich, but, I found the pistol. http://img228.imageshack.us/f/9x19mmpistol.jpg/
Couldn't fit through the window though.

I did however find someone who popped out of thin air and surprised the hell out of me.

I knew he'd have a friend so I waited, he must be around here somewhere....http://img227.imageshack.us/f/waitinglk.jpg/

Enemy spotted

Needless to say he didn't last long.

I hopped down to loot him when I got another contact, I prepared knowing I wouldn't have time to get back up. http://img412.imageshack.us/f/preparing.jpg/

Enemy spotted?

It seems I hadn't noticed a certain color of a certain dot on my minimap in time I didn't shoot or kill him however so don't worry.

Heh, that spots fun and I can see a pile of bodies being easily made there, however I prefer hiding either behind the bmp facing the doorway, or on the left side of the house through the windows. The roof would be better, if there wasn't an invisible wall preventing me from looting the guys. Ammo's not cheap in the zone .

Actually what I did and suggested doing was hiding and shooting them as they exit the building from the FRONT of it, that way you can loot them too.

Well to those of you who've read this I have this to say, SUCCESS!
http://img208.imageshack.us/i/successz.jpg/
After 6 in game days of the cordon and this sixth slowly approaching it's end, I have reached rank number 1. I've accumulated over 100,000 rubles (Sid says you can't make a profit here, pfft.), and have seen many thing's I've never seen happen in this game before. . Now that my goals been reached, I prepared to leave for Garbage.

I said goodbye to Semyon, he's been here 4 of the 6 days I have.
http://img28.imageshack.us/f/goodfriend.jpg/
And he's been just as busy it seems.
http://img231.imageshack.us/f/sbeenbusylikeihave.jpg/
I said goodbye to the one character who will almost always die in every person's game if he is found, who has been the only random NPC to survive all 6 days .

I then went to my stash and got my supplies ready, and departed. I fought some more mutants and bandits on the way to the far outpost, and when there I ran into 4 more. I made quick work of them and when looting I ran into a loner who appeared out of thin air. As if something forced him to come there...

We traded thing's, and it seems, the zone has blessed me with an item I've never recieved in all my playthroughs of this game. http://img207.imageshack.us/i/partinggiftfromthezone.jpg/

After a bit of a read I noticed you did it mainly by killing stalkers near the level changers, as well as spending a long time in game, the latter I can do haha, but the first one isn't happening . Although that is some good information, the guy I traded with was in panick mode, mainly due to more bandits coming I'm guessing, or the fact that I shot multiple bandits right before he popped up. Hell I even thought he was a bandit before I actually saw him

They didn't come back for me until I left then returned, however I found about 4 obokans before I left in an anamoly near the military base. I also was attacked by a spetznas with an obokan after I finally rescued Nimble, I have taken many more screenshots since my last post and have done quite a bit so far, I found a nice mp5 that's unfortunately not in good condition (The 9x18 mm mp5), so I doubt I'll use it much. I've also found a battery and have made some more friends, however some important NPC's died. Oddly enough the military attacked the rookie village when I got back to the cordon so I lost an important NPC, he wasn't my friend and only offered me one job though (Hint hint). I'll probably update this as some funny thing's have occured in my game, but probably not until next week as I haven't had time to upload all of these screenshots to image shack yet. Currently, I'm still in the middle of transfering my stash from cordon to my two stashes in garbage. According to Tejas they come from the garbage back to Cordon whether you're there or not, however they usually won't live long because they'll usually die in the electro anamoly tunnel or the anamoly near the base itself. Oddly though I never saw any military alive other then Lt. Babich and the one guy who attacked me right after I rescued Nimble. I only ended up finding their weapons as well, no bodies. The zone is a strange place
