So when you assist Drifter in Cordon from Wolf, he goes back to camp (if you escort him) - and if you leave and come back later - hes ALWAYS dead...
This time around, I was heading towards camp after finishing the military bit for Father Valerian, and I was heading towards the side of the camp where you approach Wolf and the campfire- but you'd be blocked out by the fence.
I heard gunfire, and as usual Drifter was dead - who/why does he die?
I also just noticed, when you're bleeding, it bleeds on the ground, and makes trails when you walk! Cool!
Also I got this NPC askin me to give him 500 to assist ME in getting a crate of weapons from the "Depot" here's a pic, I gave him 500, he did NOTHING, and then the same dialogue came up again ASKING ME FOR ANOTHER 500 - THIEF!!!
Here's a pic

Wow, I really think it is a thief NPC!! I'm speaking to another NPC at the Depot and he says: "Some douchebag sold me a map of some cache, and I'm starting to think it's a fake. I've crisscrossed the whole area and there's not a single god damned artifact around. I'll kill the scumbag when I find him!"
About that theif NPC. It's just like SOC when the guy says he'll give you a Guass Rifle for fraction of the regular price. Takes your money (if you say OK) then walks back to his buddies and never comes back with anything. I kinda like having crap like this in games. But as long as you have a heads up and have a choice. That steeling all your **** in Garbage Flea Market is just wrong. Again, it's in the story though as you can get it all back. Just adds to the game, stead of "Hey I pay, you kill" "Bring me his head!" etc. BS that we're used to, that does get boring. It's actually kinda funny (not the first time) when it happens and you're like WTF just happened. And good I'm glad it's not just me, I was wondering why Drifter always seems to die after you rescue him. What happens to him, anyone know for sure? I got to Cordon (for like the 10th new game, as I'm testing alot) for the first time and rescue Drifter from the dogs. Take him back, get my reward. Go to save the n00b Stalkers from Military @ the bus stop. Then I come back and drifter is laying there dead. No one else is dead. I'm assuming they didn't come under mutant attack or anything as it happens every single time. I guess it's in the script (as people say) :D
Hound dies too.
I seriously think they commited suicide. It just seems like them.
I've found other stalkers dead at bases and camps, I'm thinking they've been crushed by other NPCs as they tend to walk into each other.
Maybe some sort of condition they took and never healed up? Some may carry very low bleed or radiation, and that could be why they didn't die until several hours later.
Radiation and bleeding wears off unless they have severe bleeding and radiation in which case they would die in a few minutes.
I think that drifter gets killed by an angry "customer"
EdgarHighmen;4591042Hahaha crushed. wow. Were the pics any good?
I'm just guessing that as I've seen afew NPCs walking into each other and being pushed around.
