Mace (Bulava / Булава) was a character who appeared only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.
Mace is part of Topol's team, which consists of a total of four Loners who carry out jobs for the Ecologists. The player can escort the whole team during several quests, as Black and his team curiously refuse to assist them. After you've done all the quests with the team, they become Iskra Scientific Research and Investigation Team.
At first, Poplar and his team are equipped with a normal Stalker Suit and decent weapons. If the player assists the team and finishes all of the Ecologist quests, they will become part of the Ecologist faction itself, as a result getting better equipment. Mace uses the same armor used on the Exoskeleton, and upgrades his gun to a SPSA-14.
- Before Mace has new equipment, the player can still engage in conversation with him and can still trade with him. He has 5000 RU in his inventory so he would make a decent place to sell your ammo and grenades
- After Mace has new equipment, the player cannot engage in any conversation with Mace.
