Someone wanted special medkit. I got special medkit. I quicksaved. I died. I reloaded.

Upon reloading - the game cancels the mission = mission fail.

I've tried reloading multiple times, does it EVERY time. bah. Still have special medkit.

What to do?

i don't know about the special medkit...

i save 2 or 3 separate files for each level i'm in. like now i'm in limansek [w/e spelling] and i have 3 different save files for that level but each is at a slightly different time. one is like near the beginning of the level, another further on, etc. i suggest you start saving like this, it works great for me. for you? restart level, or load the autosave perhaps.

Right, I failed the medkit quest, no going back.

However Ihad to go back a good 8 minutes of play from my quicksave (which was giving me task failed for collecting reward (retarded)) to my autosave (which was before the slew of requests from NPC's and the collection I had to do so I didn't get task failed)

I've got a similar problem instead the save is before accepting the quest. After dying the first time, accepting the quest causes it to be canceled.

even though you had the mission failed warning, you should still beable to pick up the medkit and return it to get the reward.

I had something to that effect when i was doing the secret traders quest. the mission failed before i even got the pda, then it failed again ( without me asking for it again) when i picked up the pda, then it failed again when i killed the bloodsucker that comes to attack.

was still able to hand it in to the trader and gets me reward.

I keep having these type of problems in the Swamp at the beginning. I get an AKS74U for a guy in main Clear Sky camp and he won't take it. I know I have the right one cause it's marked red when I go to trade with traders. And if dropped on the ground puts a briefcase circle icon on my map saying I need it. Plus there is a icon on the Clear Sky trader on my map, saying to get my reward for something I did. When I go to him he says he has nothing for me. WTF!

^ Sounds like something the next patch will fix.

I also hope enemies are less accurate with their grenades. Later in the game, near the end

I've had the bastards throw it within like 2 seconds of seeing me, throws it perfectly through windows directly at my feet. Doesn't kill me if i'm at 100% but it messes up w/e armor i'm wearing.

I picked up the medkit before I saved, so my save had the medkit in it.

I think ... that the guy who needed it, is permanently dead.

about 8 stalkers I asked to help all wanted to help him... ... now I got this medkit... and a deadguy who doesn't need it.

I got to the first four sectors, used quick save a lot and kept saving the game in just four "save" positions. Game started crashing again and again so removed it from computer. I suddenly remembered that SoC benefited from a regular "error check" and "defrag" so did that before putting the game back on. Unusually, the game no longer recognized the save games even though it was patched the same, so started a new game. I have a rig which is more than capable of maxing out the settings but decided to go with the settings the game made. Also, I make frequent saves under new names (Had a feeling that the crashes might have been due to saving too often using the same file name). Now I have been all over the place and not a whiff of a crash.

I like the quicksave ~

Does anyone know how to collect rewards from bandits in garbage trainyard/warehouse if they are hostile?
