S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Wiki

Come up here, let's have a little chat.


Max is a Freedomer who appears only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.


Max is highly reputable in the Zone as he is often referred to as the "legendary guardian of Freedom."


Shadow of Chernobyl[]

Max can be found in the northwestern part of the Freedom base at the Army Warehouses. He can provide one optional mission, but will not give it out straight away - the player will have to complete the Destroy the Duty company and Deal with the snitch missions for Lukash first.

Once done, he can provide the mission Get a flash drive from the crazy sniper that requires the player to deal with a crazy Stalker near the swamp in the Army Warehouses area. He promises a Black Kite as a reward for completing the mission but due to a glitched script, he will instead give the Marked One a Walther P99. Max leads a group of Expert Freedom members sporting GP 37 rifles, but wearing Wind of Freedom Suits. Max also appears to be Lukash's second in command as the latter refers to Max as "The Boss".

Call of Pripyat[]

In S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, Max is only mentioned by Nimble when ordering a sniper weapon and getting the SVU2-A, his custom SVU.


  1. In Call of Pripyat, stalker Nimble can provide the protagonist with a special shortened SVUmk2, which supposedly belonged to Max.
