I made it to dark valley.....while I'm helping to ambush with duty guy, I run out of radiation health kits and all my health kits. I just end up dying of radiation poisoning.
How can I keep living? I went thru 11 radiation health kits. The whole area is radiated right?
Thanks in advance for any help!
There are only some places with heavy radiation in Dark Valley.. I suppose you did put some artefacts on your belt (stone flower for example) which, besides rising up your bullet protection, generate radiation. You have to put an anti-radiation artefact on your belt, like Thorn or Drop (-10 radiation), Fireball (-20, a classic) or Urchin (-30)..
I,ll try the artifacts. I,m by the gate for the ambush and shortly after the ambush is over & I go into a nearby building is when I end up getting radiated & die.
Will the artifacts keep me alive long enough to complete the tasks in the buildings?
Will the artifacts keep me alive long enough to complete the tasks in the buildings? Nope.. They do reduce the radiation effect (decreasing life bar), but you need to find medkit or bandages, or even food to restore your health, if you don't want to stay idle in some safe spot waiting for your life to be restored 'naturally' but slowly.. Search bodies for all that..
Good hunting, Stalker..
I got the science suit from Yantar & that was really helping in the Dark Valley until I got to the Lab, then I ran out of med kits & my 4 artifacts ceased to help me....then I got radiated and/or burnt or thrashed by the snorks while looking for the code to open door to Lab. Plus I'm just about out of amo with just a few pistol rounds.
Any further advice?
This game is a blast!
There are only two snorks, a pseudogiant and a 'fire poltergeist' there (you can ignore the other poltergeists). You have to have some ammo for the four spetznats waiting for you just before exiting the level.. There are like six burners and some 'hot spots', but this level is pretty easy. No music, strange sounds and flying objects make it rather scary though.. Note : If you hear the geiger counter then you are too close to a radiation source : step back and try to avoid it. May I also add that FPS in Stalker doesn't mean 'Fire, Pray and Suffer' but rather 'Fastness, Progress and Safety'.. :D
