Smartass (Umnik / Умник) is a character who appears only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.


A short bio, that was being omitted from final version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl game describes him as follows: [1]

A student from the Department of Physics who dropped out his senior year. He left for the Zone in search of easy money. Likes to show off his "scientific" knowledge and discourse on abstract philosophical issues. It's reason enough for other stalkers not to like him. Overall, a pretty decent fellow. A kind of idealist.


Shadow of Chernobyl

He is a Veteran Loner, who can be found in the small camp north of the Freedom Base in the Army Warehouses. He is equipped with a Stalker suit and armed with an AK-74 with a PSO scope. Baldy gives a job requiring his assassination in exchange for a rare Night Star artifact. Baldy wants him dead after he stole the artifacts they found together and sold them to Barkeep and lied to him when he claimed that the artifacts simply disappeared.
