My question is rather simple. Is it possible to get more then 2 Vintnar BC's in the un-modded game? I know about getting one from a Duty quest, And the other lying on the ground in the army warehouses. But are there any more. Can they be bought anywhere? What about another place to find one lying around? Or another quest reward? ty
there is one in the yantar underground factory in a stash. you can purchase from duty once you do the quests for em.
The Monolith soldier Charon in Pripyat has one.
There's a secret stash on the Freedom base that has one.
And as sasha notes there's one in an X16 elevator shaft secret.
I don't think you can get it from a trader in the unmodded game. At least the vanilla trader trade_*.ltx files don't allow it.
If you are running vanilla patch 1.0003 or earlier, you can get some secrets over and over (exploitable bug).
There's also a 1% chance of getting it in certain crates (big_box_arsenal) in the later game, in X19 and Pripyat and points north of there. There's also a chance of getting it in big_box_dungeons crates (3 in 1000) , but this is broken in vanilla because the random number test only has a resolution down to 1 in 100 (10 in 1000).
i swear i remember that one of the venders sells the vintorez after x10. in vanilla stalker.
Thanks guys. I am also fiddling with trying the OL mod. SO maybe that will help. I have been playing the game for like a week now, And am almost completely through the game. But I only ever got the 2 rifles I mentioned. I got many of the assault rifle versions. But oh well. OL should change it up a bit for me. I just love the BC. Best sniper in any game ever. It actually takes skill to use on a moving target at 300 yards. lol
SGT.pertenko sells vintorez after you do x16. He's located inside the duty base.

Look at the trade_*.ltx files in gamedata\config\misc. In all the patched versions of STALKER (1.0001 through 1.0006), the vanilla files show no trader stocking the item, and each one is prohibited from selling it even if he had it.
This is from patch 1.0004, and is not changed in 1.0005 or 1.0006. The line numbers are slightly different in patch 1.0001 and in patch 1.0003.
[E:\STALKER\gamedata4\config\misc\trade_barman.ltx] Line 88 : wpn_vintorez = 0.3, 0.1 Line 426 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 641 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 855 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE [E:\STALKER\gamedata4\config\misc\trade_dolg.ltx] Line 88 : wpn_vintorez = 0.3, 0.1 Line 374 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 588 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE [E:\STALKER\gamedata4\config\misc\trade_ecolog.ltx] Line 88 : wpn_vintorez = 0.3, 0.1 Line 366 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 580 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE [E:\STALKER\gamedata4\config\misc\trade_freedom.ltx] Line 89 : wpn_vintorez = 0.3, 0.1 Line 412 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 625 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 838 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE [E:\STALKER\gamedata4\config\misc\trade_generic.ltx] Line 87 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 301 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE [E:\STALKER\gamedata4\config\misc\trade_trader.ltx] Line 88 : wpn_vintorez = 0.3, 0.1 Line 359 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE Line 573 : wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE
The first line for each file is the buy list, and the others are for the different sell lists.To expand on the Duty trader file trade_dolg.ltx as a specific example (comments in italics are mine):
[dolg_generic_buy] ; Colonel Petrenko will buy it for 0.2 (average of 0.3, 0.1) X cost X condition wpn_vintorez = 0.3, 0.1
[supplies_start] ; it's not listed => it's not available
[supplies_after_rg6] ; these are available after you give Voronin the Bulldog 6 ; it's not listed => it's not available
[dolg_start_sell] wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE ; if he had it, he would not be able to sell it
[dolg_after_rg6_sell] wpn_vintorez ;NO TRADE ; if he had it, he would not be able to sell it
But it is easy to make a tweak and forget it, here. Or perhaps you have a forgotten trader mod installed. For example, if you had a repair mod installed, it might change the inventories and make this gun available for sale.
Apparently [COLOR=Sienna]Soul_purifier[/COLOR] is talking about OL or some other mod -- although I don't think OL changes the name and rank of the Duty trader.
I didn't make it!
Arguing with NatVac is like pissing into the wind. You can do it, but why would you want to?!?!:p
