Please post here any hints on finding,buying or robbing of any kind of useful equipment (mostly weapons I guess).

That's way man, thanks :)
Vintorez sniper rifle in SWAMPS behind train and bandits (under anomally) in the grass - northwest of map near the area that turns you around because you "need a guide to traverse the marsh" its by the train/tracks/anomally
Dead Mercenary behind Freedom Base contains LR 3000 (Dunno if always) and USP + some more.
Artifacts seem to be in SPECIFIC locations as ONE TIME things (not to re-appear in those group of anomalies and not to appear in anomalies that artifacts weren't in to begin with)
Gravi -2 radiation - first time you leave clear sky base equipped with Echo detector, its on your left side of the strip of land in an anomaly)
Gravi far west in swamps where traintracks pass over water and are broken bridged~ there is a dirt tunnel on west side of northern end of bridge that contains this artifact in a bucket :) use detector once inside - high radiation areas guard this tunnel - you need to find a gap/HOLE in the fence that lets you get near these train tracks.
Mama's Beads? or Fire Crystal (2 in the vehicle graveyard in garbage - IN THE FLAMES/BURNER anomalies) use detector
Disturbed land northwest corner of machine yard in swamps (visible as cracks on map/radar - Don't fall in!!!!!!) holds an artifact
Battery Rear of Freedom base by electric anomalies - inside the fenced in area at southwest corner of base below the tunnel that's up in the air~
2 artifacts in garbage near the area with visible PSY(brain scorcher?) veils and LOTS of electric anomallies, northwest? Its very visible from a distance - use detector and bolts
More disturbed land southeast dark valley contains artifact near dead body - approach the disturbed land here from the east side
Burnt Farmstead? Swamps - burned down house with burner anomallies, fire crystal artifact or similar there.
Electric Anomallies in swamps near poles usually have artifacts, - if your detector ain't going off, probably nothing in too close - keep looking
Freedom base - On top of one of the oil tanks? Big round ones - use a ladder on the tanks and travel to the third tank - equip artifacts that reduce chemical damage - this anomally is strong and will kill you.
Dark Valley - artifact outside fence on northEAST side of where that building that leads to the lab in SoC - travel around the fence outside that building area northeast corner ~ travel in a counter clockwise C always following the fence - stay close to the fence/walls or the anomallies will suck you in / blow you up.
Green glowy areas of swamp's - save near them, equip detector, and mad dash through them to find your artifacts - if there's no artifact, try a different green glowy/gassy area
Green radioactive/gassy areas of Garbage - contain artifacts
Artifacts on the eastern side (trees area) of garbage near anomalies that pull you in and explode you!!!!!!! use bolts and look for distortions on the ground or above you.
There's some more I don't remember, but I've only been in cordon/swamp/dark valley and garbage so far.
Help all the stalkers in CORDON until they're all green and don't let the ones at the vehicle station (bandit camp in SoC's first quest from wolf) die - once they're all friends you should get a "How can I help you" quest from some one at the vehicle station to get a LEGENDARY AK "Trophy AK" from the building across~ very nice.
SVD Dragunov, Army Warehouses
There is a military sniper on a tower in the middle of the base. I took him out with a upgraded ak74 with a scope. Then I went closer to see what kind of stuff he was using (as his shots were very powerful), I found a Dragunov rifle in very good condition. In a building nearby, apart from multiple Obokans and AK74s, there is like 70 rounds of Dragunov ammo too.
