Neutralize the bandit is an optional mission featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.
The mission Edit
The mission is given by General Voronin.
Completing the mission Edit
The player must kill the bandit called Poker. Although Voronin informs the player that the bandit is found somewhere in the Dark Valley territory, Poker can be found in Agroprom Underground and is often accompanied by a small group of experienced bandits. Poker possesses a unique variant of SPSA14 shotgun called Threaded SPSA-14.
- Because Poker tends to spawn in the Agroprom Underground alongside the normal bandit group there upon a player's second visit to that area, he can often be killed before encountering General Voronin, resulting in this mission never being made available. This can occur as part of Barkeep's mission Destroy the group of bandits at the Agroprom. If one wishes to undertake this mission it is advisable to hold off on revisiting the Agroprom Underground until obtaining the quest from Voronin.
Background information Edit
Prior to the patch 126.96.36.199, this mission was severely bugged as Poker almost always wasn't where he was supposed to be (according to the map).
According to the 188.8.131.52 patch readme file, the mission has been fixed.
