exoskeleton has night vision... right?

So I'm not new to the stalker series but I am new to call of pripyat. Been playing for a few days now and am really enjoying the game. My favorite so far...

Anyways, I order the skeleton from Nimble for 60.000 and much to my surprise, when I get it, I can't use the night vision....

I made sure the key was properly mapped (N by default but I also added a backup key just in case... M) and all the sites that I see mention that the exoskeleton has a first generation NVG.

I don't know if these things can malfunction but it's repaired 100% according to the techs.

I realize you can later upgrade to a better NVG but I was sure you got one by default...

It hasn't been a huge problem but I'm getting to harder missions in Jupiter and night vision would REALLY come in handy.

Thanks for helping out!

Hello I am afraid that the exo does not have night vision when you buy it. You will be able to upgrade to second generation night vision by seeing one of the techs. You will need to find the tool sets for the techs in order for them to be able to do upgrades. Each Tech( Cardan in Zaton and Nitro in Yanov) needs three types of tools, They are basic, fine and calibration. In Zaton you will be able to find two sets, basic and fine. you can also find the same two sets in Yanov. The calibration sets are both in Pripyat.

Exo night vision is a second tier upgrade which will require you to find a basic and fine set of tools for one of the technicians who will need both sets to do the work.

So to recap, There are two technicians who each require three sets of tools in total but only two sets are required for the exo night vision. You must find both sets (basic tools and fine tools) and give them both to one tech so that he is able to do the upgrade you want. The tools you need are in the areas you are currently in. Good hunting.

After you accept the tool finding tasks from the technicians you will get an extra line of questioning when talking to stalkers and can get clues from them to where the tools may be.

really?

wow that's surprising!

If you'll follow this link

[link]http://stalker.wikia.com/wiki/Exoskeleton[/link]

you'll notice that the suit gets " Night Vision 1st Generation" in the stats column

and it says (my italics)

Call of Pripyat
Exoskeleton received a slight boost, with its base anomaly protection being second only to the SEVA suit, though its radiation protection is as low as ever. Just like SEVA it has an integrated helmet, hovewer unlike SEVA it comes with the much-needed nightvision. Its base Impact and Armor stats are as usual highest in the game and it starts with one artifact slot. Just wearing it increases your carry weight limit by 30, though the suit itself weighs 25.

I'm not doubting what you're saying, in fact they correspond to what I'm seeing, but can you explain the error on that site?

Also are you aware of any other mistakes on that site?

Thanks!

Of course, real Stalkers don't require night vision - they feel their way through the dark....

If you want any basic game info the place to go is the ZSG - Zone Survival Guide. Recently resurrected and expanded to include CoP.

Broadcap, the link you gave gives stats for the exo suit as seen in shoc which is why it says it has first gen night vision. From Clear sky (game 2) on due to the ability to now upgrade the suits it was removed from the stock model and made an upgrade option. Basically you are reading old info. The best place as already said is the ZSG Cop version. Here you will find the most accurate info available. http://cop.zsg.dk 

This link will get you on site just search for what you want.The odd thing may be incorrect but it is rare.

Then it needs updating with the correct info. Its not like it is something that has changed it has been like that from day 1 of Cop, so the wiki authors??? They need to play the game more. Or not write supposed fact based on presumptions.

I just looked at the wiki link again they got it right for Clear sky but changed it back for Cop?
I just went on the wiki and edited the cop exo nv part.
