DETAILED MAP OF THIS ZONE - NPC's & IMPORTANT PLACES:

Important NPC characters (red color):

1 - Bes - He's in charge of protection of a local junkyard. You will have an opportunity to finish one of his missions that will require you to repel a bandit raid. If Bes survives this attack, you will be able to meet him later on during the game.

2 - Seriy - He is hiding inside one of the largest warehouse buildings of this map. You will have to help him and his colleagues in defending this building. As a result, you will fulfill one of the more important quests. Make sure that you end this task in the first place. Otherwise Seriy won't even talk to you.

3 - Warrant officer - He's one of the soldiers of the Duty organization. Sadly, you won't be able to get past him right away, especially since there are a lot of Duty soldiers nearby and you wouldn't have any chance fighting against all of them. You will be able to get past the checkpoint once you've safely returned from Agroprom Research Institute (with the military documents in your possession). This will allow you to reach the northern Bar sector.

Important places (green color):

1 - This is where you will begin your exploration of this map (once you've used the Cordon-Garbage connection). Sadly, this doesn't mean that you'll be safe here. Once you've killed some of the nearby bandits (most of them can be found near the junkyard) MORE enemy units will appear in this area without any warnings. As a result, I wouldn't recommend planning your moves from here. Instead, consider choosing more abandoned part of the map.

2 - This road leads directly to the junkyard - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

2 - This road leads directly to the junkyard. You will witness an interesting scene here. One of the friendly Stalkers is surrounded by bandits. I would recommend helping him out, especially since you'll have to use this road to reach the junkyard. Make sure to loot the bodies of fallen enemies.

3 - This is where the junkyard has been located - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

3 - This is where the junkyard has been located. You will have an opportunity to help Bes and few other Stalker soldiers to protect this area from enemy attacks. Sadly, this won't solve the problem. Even if you manage to end the mission, more enemy units will come from the east. As a result, Bes will probably die and you should consider leaving this area as soon as possible.

4 - Dangerous anomalies - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

4 - Dangerous anomalies. Despite what you might think, you should take a closer look at this section of the map, mostly because you will have an opportunity to pick up several precious artifacts here. You will have to watch out for vortex anomalies, however. Make sure that you aren't caught, because it would have been very difficult to escape. Consider pushing the sprint button rapidly and MAYBE you'll get lucky.

5 - Piles of junk - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

5 - Piles of junk. Sadly, this is a highly radioactive zone, so if you don't have a decent suit at your disposal or a large number of anti-rad medicines, you should stay away from these spots. The same goes with most of the other piles.

6 - These gates will lead you straight to the main warehouse that's one of the most important buildings of this map - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

6 - These gates will lead you straight to the main warehouse that's one of the most important buildings of this map. Additionally, you will come across destroyed parts of the brick wall. You may also use them to your advantage.

7 - The main warehouse - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

7 - The main warehouse. First of all, you should be able to find Seriy and few other Stalker soldiers here. You will have to defend this warehouse in order to fulfill one of the main missions of the game. Additionally, you may receive side quests from time to time that will require you to repel other bandit raids. It's not necessary to participate in these actions, though.

8 - You will probably encounter a very large pack of wild dogs here - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

8 - You will probably encounter a very large pack of wild dogs here. I would recommend killing the animals, especially since you'll be able to find a lot of artifacts and stashes in this area. You could also wait for the dogs to kill some of the nearby bandits.

9 - This is a highly radioactive zone - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

9 - This is a highly radioactive zone. The road leads straight to The Dark Valley sector. I wouldn't recommend going there if this is your first visit to Garbage zone. You will have to wait for the main character to receive a better armor.

Once you've returned from Bar:

You will probably have a decent suit at your disposal. As a result, you won't be exposed to radiation too much. Nevertheless, you should have at least 10 anti-radiation medicines in your inventory. Also, try running (instead of walking) towards the exit.

10 - You will encounter a destroyed building here - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

10 - You will encounter a destroyed building here. Watch out for a single sniper. He's covering the eastern part of the map, so be careful. Try killing him as soon as possible. Once this is done, secure the entire area and search for objects of any value.

11 - You'll find a DUTY campsite here - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

11 - You'll find a DUTY campsite here. You will have an opportunity to talk to the Warrant Officer. If this is your first visit, you won't be able to get past the gate. Also, make sure that you DON'T attack any of the nearby soldiers.

Once you've returned from Agroprom Research Institute - Detailed map - Garbage - S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Once you've returned from Agroprom Research Institute:

The camp site is going to be attacked by a large group of wild boars. You will find out about this once you've returned to the campsite. The animals will be coming from north-east. I would recommend that you start off with the grenade, so you'll be able to kill at least one boar. After that, start using your current machine gun. You should be able to get rid of at least 3-4 wild boars. Thankfully, your actions won't affect the outcome, because you'll receive a passage to the Bar area, however you will have to talk to Warrant Officer in order to get the clearance. Head on to that sector, but watch out for a vortex that's located in the middle of the asphalt road.

12 - This road leads to Agroprom Research Institute sector. Sadly, you will come across A LOT of enemy soldiers here. You will have to kill them all before proceeding to the exit. Also, be on a look out for precious artifacts. There's only one road leading to your destination. You will also encounter several wild dogs, however killing these creatures is going to be very easy.
