OK, i'm trying to get the PDA for the soldier who hides under the bridge at the cordon, i've found it in a tunnel on the train line, but i can't get to it, as soon as i approach the body, the screen goes white and i'm turned around to face the opposite direction! How do i get to the PDA? This is really frustrating, it feels like a level changer bug for a changer that shouldn't be there, but i guess it could be an anomaly so i thought i'd ask for help :)
I had this exact problem.

Answer:Spoiler: ShowGo back along the train track to the bridge. Climb up to the very top of the bridge and you'll see what looks like a new vortex or something. Infact, it's actually a portal. Jump into it and you'll be transported inside of the tunnel. Lot's of supplies there too :D
LOL, i saw that, spent an age just throwing bolts into it, nothing seemed to happen, but out of caution i thought i would just leave well alone :rolleyes::D
hehe I did the exact same, first time I saw it, I was like "that's a bit of a random place for a vortex!" LMAO.
Well obviously you didn't get the hint when you talk to the Stalkers guarding the train track bridge. Your chacarter asks about the wierd vortex / black hole and the Stalker says yeah it's odd but anything you throw in there disappears for good, or at least we thought. We used it for throwing our trash in there to keep the environment clean and all. Instead we noticed it all was down at the tunnel as it was just transporting from one anomoly to another. Well those aren't exact words but yeah, it is said. Anyways yeah even after reading all this I never thought to jump through it. LOL good find!
It's things like this that make ya think a little bit in this game as apposed to the original Stalker game. Plus things like stashes too, I had one marks and was under a tree, finally I was like "Hmm I wonder", sure enough it was way up in the tree, I had to climb up a hill and run and jump onto a tree branch to get to the stash. Good idea of them to do that. And things like the artifacts not being out in the open for you to just grab up. Least you actually have to use your detector to locate it and sometimes you have to spend plenty of time in radiation to get to it. But the give away with artifacts is that you see a smoke trail of it trying to come up from the ground, so at least you get a general idea of where it is. Now if they could remove those little puffs of smoke I see when there is a artifact near by, they would make it harder.
Jeesh I get the PDA for the guy and all I get is a Army Medkit, how lame. Well After giving the PDA to him and receiving the medkit. I killed him. Is there any other use for this PDA? I was going play around and give the Military Commander the pistol he wanted so he can try to break out, just to see how that would turn out. But I waited too long and now Stalkers are green and now the Commander is gone from his cell. Is that supposed to happen? He was just there when Stalkers were neutral to me (yellow). WTF?! Well thanx for details about the portal anyways, as I had the "Stash in the pipe" marked on my map which is also in that tunnel where the Military PDA is.
they whole cordon mission is bugged ...i am stuck 15 hours of play down the pooper ....deal with the commanders pals to get the info from guy in the cell to find the loot ?? stuck stuck stuck i mite have to take a long long break from this mess clear sky? heehehhe

That is the loot mission you are referring to, not the PDA. The lone soldier under the bridge "Who says don't shoot me" gives you the PDA mission. By the way when you do go to get the loot, it'll show up as a red circle. The item is a green tool box looking item. Give it to SID.
thiers no pda because i shot him? he wanted me to join the millitary his body had no pda ...anyway i was told to deal with him i though i was wack his ass and steal the pda from his coarpse? :nodding: anyway i gave up all missions and quests long ago ...they need to patch this shite
