It's been a long time since anyone's come through the Red Forest! Merc come over and I'll fill you in.Raven
Raven is the squad leader of a team of Freedom members who are guarding the exit to the Red Forest in the Military Warehouses area. The player talks to Raven after trudging through the Red Forest and after meeting Forester (provided Freedom doesn't want to shoot the player on sight yet), he also hints Scar about a Mercenary team who has been searching for their missing teammates for days.
Raven gives the coordinates of a box containing 2 Scientific Medkits for a disappointing 4500 rubles, but he can give the coordinates of several more stashes too. He also has a chance of dying while trying to assault the Duty barricade in the Red Forest.
