Shishak is the leader of a large group of bandits in Yanov who reside in the container warehouses.
Call of PripyatEdit
Shishak's role is primarily around the hostage situation of Mitay, where he is holding him for ransom for either the Goldfish artifact they found or 15,000RU. Depending on what the player decides to do, one can either pay the ransom or forcefully break Mitay out by eliminating Shishak and his bandits.
If the player negotiates for Mitay and he lives, Shishak, unlike Jack, will not stray out of the container warehouses and will continue to remain there for the entire game. He also does not have anything of interest in his inventory, so there is no real reason to kill him other than for fun. If the player has given the Goldfish to Shishak, they can kill him to reclaim it, though it'll force the player to fight the large amount of bandits who reside in the area.
If the player breaks Mitay out, Shishak will hold a gun to Mitay's head and will attempt to shoot him. The player only has a few seconds to get a clean headshot or risk Mitay's life. Again, there is nothing of interest in his inventory.
