I'm playing 2 steps above Easy mode and I keep getting cut down by that MG at the start of the Cordon, at the Military base. It's like a one-shot weapon kill... I've tried sniping the guy but he takes 12 hits in the chest and doesn't die.
I usually sprint the tree on the right, take cover, wait for the fire to stop, sprint to the big rock on the left, and then shoot out the boxes under the tree further to the left, get under there, and then sprint way off to the left to avoid more MG fire. But now that I'm on a harder difficultly, I can't make it more than like 2 feet past the big tree on the left before I'm cut down.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Never get behind a tree when faced with a PK Machine gun or an AK47 as the rounds will fly right through it. If you make a mad dash for the nearest body of rocks that can cover you is where you should go and stay there til they say "we lost him" or something of the sort.. Then make a mad dash for Sid because the base will most likely be patrolling for you
you gotta make a break for it ....your probelly crouching behind those big rocks like i was pined down...i ran off too the left and fallowed the fence before the downed tree to left is a opening in the fence you gotta run like forest gump using medic kits as your taking hits run forest run :beer:thats your first hard part in the game i think
I didn't make it!
First Run straight out of the entrance and hide behind the large rock. Look off to your left while he is shooting the rock, you will see a fallen tree. There are a couple of crates under the tree. You can actually crawl under the tree near the crates and use it as your next run from position. I would recommend running across his field of fire rather than directly away from him. But you can run from the tree to Sid. Drop any heavy useless stuff you have like extra shotguns or vipers before you leave the tunnel.
yep run dont try to take the base from that side its impossible that machine gunner in shooting out of a small slot you cant shoot in it
All you have to do is run for cover behind a rock, then when he stops shooting run to the next cover. Most people get confused about where to go, but go under the tree and run to the left as fast as you can and you're going to make it to the newbie camp. Another way is there is a vortex in the NE corner of the swamps, you jump into it and it teleports you to the newbie camp.
I thought its impossible but i did it 2-3 times now because there is a stash above that tunnel and it gets really easy after a while.
vortex? transporter ? what does it look like ....?
BTW I have shot the PKM gunner numerous times thank you. It's not impossible as one might think. But another NPC will take his place almost imediately as you can see one run up the steps to the tower and get on the gun. Doing what Supernatur4L has said to do with running to the rocks and crouching down as low as possible, soon as the gun stops run to tree and to your left, remember the game will stop u from sprinting if you start bleeding so be prepared to hit your sprint key again. Once you're out of the way of fire, heal up and continue north to SID and the newbie camp. Later in the game if you ever decide to take out the Military, as I always do to easily stock up on AK to sell and ammo for myself. Go to the fence area to the far left side (which would be your far right side when looking on your map) of the Military outpost and start to take it from that direction. If you get over the large tree that is there you can even hit the outpost from the rear. I've done it from every angle. These are your 2 best points of attack as you'll be cleared of the PKM Gunner.
Theres a MUCH easier way past this. go back to the swamps, head north, and up there near a farmhouse is an entrance to the cordon without any magic machine guns that can spot you in the dead of night hidden behind a rock from 10 miles away
Well is it just me? But I used to be able to do that. Having the guide take you to Cordon. Then going back to swamp and walking to another exit. But now with patch 1.5.04, I can't do that, it won't let me go back to Swamp. I also can't go to Garbage. I was hoping to be able to go to another map without doing all the Stalker stuff. As I have another game going now and I just wanted to roam around and such, seems you can't. WTF!
