S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl Game Guide & Walkthrough

Trust no-one Complete game walkthrough, maps, hints, locations.

Welcome to the unofficial guide to "S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl". This guide consists of three large and separate chapters. Each of these chapters is going to be very important, so I would recommend that you read the entire guide, not only the walkthrough section. The first chapter of my guide is by far the largest one. Here you'll find a complete walkthrough of the singleplayer campaign of the game. There are more then 10 main levels (+a few underground missions) for you to explore. I've prepared three maps for each location. The first map shows exits to other zones. The second map will tell you where to find NPC characters. You will also find out about important locations and secrets. The third map is tied directly to quest descriptions, so you'll know exactly where to go in order to fulfill them. The second chapter of my game guide will allow you to find quests quickly, because you will be given a complete and alphabetically ordered list of all main quests of the game. The descriptions are very similar to those near the quest maps. As a result, you should be able to find your quest locations without any major problems. This chapter will also come in handy for those of you who don't want to know anything else, so you won't have to waste your time searching for quest descriptions. The final third chapter of my game guide was being prepared mostly for less experienced players, however you will also find a large list of common weapons, armors and artifacts here. You will be able to use these objects during the course of the game. I've also shown their advantages and disadvantages, so you'll know exactly what you're getting into. You will also find some basic hints in this chapter of the guide. These clues should help you out to survive in the game world (yes... it's not going to be that simple ;)). You will find out how to explore your surroundings and deal with different kinds of threats. I've displayed some of the monsters and anomalies, so make sure that you read these hints. I hope that my guide will become helpful to you and will allow you to safely reach one of the possible endings. Have fun playing the game!
