Call of Pripyat Edit
Lt Podorozhny is one of the few surviving members of Operation Fairway when the player reaches Pripyat. Along with his fellow Military Stalkers Valentyr and Morozov, the three are Captain Tarasov's right-hand men in the Laundromat. Their role is minimal at best.
Podorozhny first appears during the Mysterious Weapons quest where, along with Tarasov, Valentyr, Morozov and Alexander Degtyarev he attempts to lure out a Monolith Preacher to secure his weapon. Much like Tarasov and Valentyr, he may die if the Preacher is not dealt with fast enough. If he survived, he will return to the Laundromat
If he is still alive at the end of the game, Podorozhny will take part in the final Evacuation. If him, Kirillov, Rogovets, Tarasov and Valentyr survive the evacuation, the player will get the positive ending for Garry.
