The stalker's primary act of "stalking" or "looting", as the military characterizes it, is the smuggling of radioactive and unidentified objects from the zone that are highly dangerous for human health and life. And stalkers seem to have adopted this concept, since exploiting and robbing others do not fall within their usual agenda. Stalkers come to the Zone for a number of reasons. Some go for profit, some for adventure, some seek to get away from the world, to escape law or personal problems. It follows that former criminals can be found in all of the stalker factions except Duty, though most criminals are not part of a bandit clan have long since started new lives. Survival in the zone is extremely harsh and stalkers face various mutant beasts and enemy stalkers, becuase of this stakers are armed with lethal weaponry.
Battle vs. Raiders (by KevlarNinja)Edit
In the wastland, a group of raiders is going through the remains of an old lab that, before the war, was experimenting in interdimensional travel. One of the raiders presses a button that opens a portal that the raiders get sucked into. They pop out of the portal in the Zone of Alienation, Ukraine. The Raider leader slaps the Raider who pressed the butten and suddenly, something grabs the leaders eye; a Stone Flower (a rare artifact). He put's it in his backpack, and notices something else; a squad of Stalkers. Meanwhile, the Stalkers, who's mission is to find the Stone Flower, fallow there beeping Detectors to the Raiders on the hill ahead. One Stalker, who's wearing Exoskeleton armor and is rather musclebouned, says in Russian to there leader "Look's like someone beat us to the Stone Flower. Let's get them." and the leader answers back "Wait! I'M the leader, I say when we attack. It keep's us from getting killed." to which the Raider leader kills a Stalker with his DKS-501 sniper rifle.
"Like that?" asks the burly Stalker. The leader answers "Da. now we attack." as he pulls out his Vintar BC to kill a Raider.
The Stalkers chase the Raiders to an abandoned house. The Raiders go inside. As the Stalkers fallow them in, a Raider pops up from a window and kills a Stalker with her Sawed-off Shotgun.
Another Stalker kills the female Raider with her SPSA-14 shotgun.
As the shotgun Stalker goes upstairs, a fourth one with a Bulldog 6 Grenade Launcher chases a Raider into the kitchen, who takes cover behind an over-turned table. The Stalker fires a grenade and blows up the Raider.
Upstairs, the female Stalker looks for a Raider. She's burned alive by a Raider with a Flamer Flamethrower.
Through the flames, the burly Stalker walks over to the Raider, untouched by the fire. The Raider is terrorfied as the Stalker knocks the Flamer out of the Raider's hands. He then pulls out a hunting knife and stabs him in the shoulder, and he shouts in pain. The Stalker then picks him up, and breaks his back on his knee.
The Stalker walks downstairs. From behind him, the Raider leader throws a frag grenade at him. It does not kill him, but the force sends him flying into an nearby Electro Anomaly, which sizzes him like bacon.
The Stalker leader throws an RGD-5 in the room. It cripples the Raider. The Stalker comes up to him and finishes the job with his hunting knife.
The Stalker leader takes the Stone Flower out of the Raider's backpack and put's it in his own backpack. He takes out a bottle of Vodka and takes a swig. He offers some to the dead Raider saying "It's as much yours as mine, beacause you helped me find what I was looking for." and he chuckles as he leaves the now burning house.
A squad of Navy SEALs is dropping into The Zone. The Ukrainain goverment has asked them to take care of a groups of terrorists. Meanwhile, the 'terrorists' are watching. But there not terrorists, there Stalkers. The Stalker leader says in Russian "On my go, we attack." A lanky Stalker aims his Vintar BC at a Navy SEAL as the chopper there dropping out of flies away. The Stalker leader gives the signel and the Vintar Stalker fires.
