Hey, I just wanna know if you guys know any of the locations for good Stalker suits. I don't really know what ones are good, and I don't know where to get them. Where can I find some good ones? (I like the exo-suit, it looks kool)
The Zone Survival Guide - Items in the Open Use ctrl + f to find what you're looking for.
Several suits are "good", but they all have drawbacks. The Exo will protect well against bullets, the organge environmentalist suit is excellent against anomalies. What is probably the best "allround" suit, is the green suit made for the scientists' bodyguards. When you come to Yantar, Sakharov will tell you that it is some special suit he want, and that can be found in Lab x16. Take that job, and as a reward he will give you one of the green suits.
None of the suits that can be found just laying around are very good (at least not until you reach Pripiyat and start empty stashes there), but there is a SEVA in the very radioactive house in the wild territories that are not so bad.

The best all around suit is the universal protection suit you get from Duty.
No I mean it is actually the best suit.
It has the best protection against bullets (only 10 points less than exo) Has high anomaly protection (equal to ecologist suit) Has high radiation, electric, fire, chemical protection (equal to SEVA suit) Has an even higher rapture protection than exo.
That's the "best" suit in the game. It's fairly easy to get too.
Go to sgt.pretenko at bar and do a quest for him that involves killing a freedom member. Headshot the freedomer with a pistol in the face to avoid making anyone mad at you, and get your prize.
Another way is to simply join duty.

You are right, I'm wrong! :cool: Not sure if you can "simply join Duty, though, if you don't play some mod.
Some suits are noted on Gilgamesh Uruk's SoC map. You can find a lot of exo suits and military stalker suits in the NPP and beyond. And there are at least six good suits in Pripyat in the open.
The following info is for vanilla SoC patched to 1.0003 or later.
The PSZ-9Md Universal Protection suit is the dolg_scientific_outfit in the game's outfit.ltx file. It is both given as a quest item and sold (after you complete the RG-6 task for Voronin) by Colonel Petrenko (English version name -- not Sgt. Pretenko). It is also given by Voronin as a reward for completing the Bulldog 6 grenade launcher task. You don't have to kill anyone to get it.
It is cheaper than the SEVA suit (25000 Ru vs. 30000 Ru), and it has exactly the same stats as the SEVA suit (SSP-99, scientific_outfit in outfit.ltx), which are worse than the green protection suit (SSP-99M, protection_outfit in outfit.ltx).
The green SSP-99M deteriorates less quickly in fire, in Fruit Punch and in Electro anomalies than the SEVA or Universal Protection suits, and it gives more protection: 90% vs 80% against fire, 90% vs 70% against chemical burn, and 60% vs 50% against explosions. And it is 2 kg lighter! So [COLOR=Sienna]Sun Zi[/COLOR] was right the first time.
(Because it deteriorates less quickly, it heals less quickly in anomalies when you are equipped with four or five +30 anomaly-specific artifacts.)
And there is one big drawback in vanilla STALKER to the PSZ-9Md Universal Protection suit: You can't carry bodies with it. It's a bug.
But it is arguably the coolest-looking suit in the game. :)
If you are playing a mod, guys, you need to say so. Lots of mods change the stats of items like outfits so that any statement might be true for a particular mod.
Sun Zi;4755044You are right, I'm wrong! :cool: Not sure if you can "simply join Duty, though, if you don't play some mod.
Edit possibility gone: Seems I was right about this after all - in vanilla game. I was wrong in not checking. I play ZRP just now, my first SoC mod ever, and was not aware that suit stats was changed in this particular mod. But this is not important.
I would just warn players against headshooting (or otherwis killing) the Duty guard with the secrets of Pripiyat that Colonel Petrenko wants. Freedom leadership will not care very much, but the guard's comrades who are witnesses, certainly will. They will stay yellow, and that means that next time you hurt Freedom, they will go red. Then, even if you do the Freedoms favors, like protecting the border, you will have great difficulties collecting your rewards, as the sentry guards seems to be excempted from field service, and all have "steady jobs" just standing around. "Balancing" between Freedom and Duty is sometimes very difficult. But this was maybe a little offtopic.

ZRP (Zone Reclamation Project) doesn't change suit stats. It pretty much just fixes bugs and annoyances. There's even a Modifier option in the ZRP to show the vanilla suit stats before you buy, so you can compare different protection values. (I know you know this, [COLOR=Sienna]Sun Zi[/COLOR]. I saw your nifty website.) My comments weren't directed at you. Heck, I don't even consider ZRP a mod, partly because the official patches are just packed mods themselves for the most part.
In fact, the ZRP download page tells you what to change to make it as close to vanilla as possible, like returning to 1 day time limit on quests (instead of 3) and reducing the size of the search/trade grids from ZRP's default of 12 by 8 to 10 by 6 (times 2 grids). The defaults were chosen as a compromise to reduce the complaints.
I am under the impression that [COLOR=Sienna]Soul_purifier[/COLOR] was using a mod, based on the suit statistics mentioned here: in vanilla, the exo actually has 60% bullet protection versus only 40% for the Duty UP suit mentioned (that's 20 points, not 10), the exo has 80% rupture protection versus 50% for the Duty UP suit (so the Duty suit has lower protection, not higher), and there's a comment elsewhere that the Cordon "monster" was a psi dog.
Exoskeletons are looking really cool, but after playing a lot with this suit on you, you will realize that it is very boring (you can't run and the radiation will kill you fast). The SSP-99M suit is a very good suit: Sakharov will give it to you if you bring him the Ghost suit (found on Ghost's corpse in X16 lab). The PSZ-9Md Universal Protection and the Seva suit are very protective too, but they have a bigger weight, but if you get a Mama's beads artifact and a Night star artifact, the PSZ-9Md will be better than an Exo in all stats. If you are looking for an Exo, Skinflint, the trader in Freedom base will sell it to you (after you finish the missions for freedom. The best Exoskeleton: Exo PNB-4UZ, wich will alow you to run, is also lighter but more complex in the protection. This Exo is unique on the map. After finishing the mission in X16 lab, go outside and search the loners. If you really want the suit, you must kill them to get information about the stuff (Fang's Goodies), in Pripyat. There is also a good artifact in that stash (Mama's beads). When you reached the NPP, you can find antother Exo into a chest, somewhere close to the Wish Granter. I was able to find a very rare suit in one of the boxes at the NPP: The Military armored suit. This is the best suit in Shadow of Chernobyl, but there are minimal chances to get it. Hint: You can have a good suit just at start; no pay: When you got out from Sidorivich, go to Wolf. You will see a house with a ladder and an attic: Climb on the ladder, but do not enter the attic, just walk along the exit until you will be able to climb on the roof. after that, run and jump on the roof of the house in front of you. When you got there, look inside the roof and you will find a box. Break it with the pistol you get from Wolf and you will find there a Merc suit.
I like the EXo suit, and made my own for the OL2.2 from the EXO_suit_m type. it heals you, regenarates you, helps stops your bleeding, protects you from all anomilies, it regenarates, and protects you against raditaion and physic, you can run in it too. a exalent infiltration suit for the zone. how ever it isn't good against burn and explosion, and your physic protection is limited. you may wear this suit but just like anything for protection you have to use this suit. for exsample, you get hit by a granade, the suit degrades quickly, but your by weak radition with only 50% health being shot at by the enemy and your already bleeding badly enough to watch the health bar go down rapidly, a bulit may regenarate the suit, but will you last long enough for it to regenarate to save you while you get worst from the bulit hits. you may need to move were the radition is stronger (in this low radation section you will see you are being contaminated by the radition icon and it will get worst untill the suit is at full status) to regenarate the suit, but the radation hit may not be strong enough to cause the suit to heal you, you may have to sneak around to get to a static anomly to get a strong hit to bring up your health and increase your healing factor to stop bleeding. I made the suit for the expert level. and if it sounds like cheat suit, don't kid yourself. I have died from gun shot wounds. this is a suit you really have to use to save you. shot up to hell, bleeding badly and not enough bandages nor med kits to stop or heal you, not heavy enough to take a hard hit from jumping off a building and no mutants or anaomlies ( and not all anaomlies will help you just some), you will die, unless a blow out comes along.. the funny thing I have experince using it was a assult on the monolith base, between radition, anaomily, builits and granades, I seen the meter for health and sheild protection go up and down alot including the blood icon and radation icon fading in and out, I was like " this is crazy" ( and I made the silly thing..)
