"While his past record is not detailed, he presumably has some kind of experience with the Zone" - is this from the official english translation? I'm still using Tagaziel's and it clearly states he's a former Stalker. Cement Plant 07:11, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
The 2.4 million figure is a rough calculation I did - basically taking every possible ending slide, and multiplying them together to see the possible number of combinations (each is essentially independent, and while having only one or two 'slides' may have up to three or four actual endings, so my figure if anything is smaller then what may be actually possible. Since I'm playing through still the number may in fact grow but I haven't uncovered anything else just yet. LonerDeacon 17:22, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
What the fuck, who changed all the last E's into O's in Degtyarev?
It's not Degtyarov, no translation I've ever seen is Degtyarov, the retail says Degtyarev, I'll beat up anyone who thinks it's Degtyarov. Unregistered A-hole contributor 12:13 AM Febuary 15th 2010
It's probably the same unregistered guy who thinks Freedom and the Ecologists are enemies, despite what the files say and despite in-game dialogue which proves the opposite. Boredgunner 05:23, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
You guys keep arguing about what the name is, but you never even bothered changing the article name, fixed it for you. And yes, unregistered guy is right, its with an "e". Kewlcrayon 06:27, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Eaaasy now. We are not the enemies. Unregistered Contributors who insist Freedom hates Ecologists despite everything pointing to the contrary are. Also, my bad, I think it was me that first put an 'o' in his name, but I sure as hell didn't put it back. LonerDeacon 02:58, February 16, 2010 (UTC)
- Okay, his name in the original Russian is Дегтярёв, which is essentially Degtyaryov. The 'ё' character is pronounced like a 'yo' always. It is not considered an accent, but a completely different letter of the alphabet from 'e', which is like a 'ye' when stressed, and a schwa when not. The people doing the English localization either didn't realize the distinction, didn't care, or thought people would be comfortable enough with Slavic surnames to figure it out. Just about every voice actor in the English version mispronounces this name as a result. I'll favour leaving it spelt "Degtyarev" in the article because that's what players will be expecting.... but it's not really the most accurate way to render his name in the Latin alphabet. On Ukrainian websites, they write his name as "Олександр Дегтярьов", so there it's a little more obvious. Bluehawk2008 07:54, January 1, 2011 (UTC)
"He may have been named after Aleksandr Degtyarev..."
- Sources? (interviews with devs for ex.) Octurion 13:20, February 27, 2010 (UTC)
Am I the only one that's noticed that when you go into third person view, Degtyarev's avatar /never/ wears headgear? I was kind of hoping to get screenshots of him with a gas mask...

There's modifications out there that change that - stalker.filefront has a "Wear your goddamn helmet" mod that does exactly that. GSC was even nice enough to leave the helmeted models commented in so you can edit it yourself if you know how to unpack the game. LonerDeacon 01:21, March 1, 2010 (UTC)
Heh, much thanks.
--Aberrant Render 20:11, March 1, 2010 (UTC)
That's because X-Ray doesn't support head and body model separation - the entire model is a single entity. So if Degtyarev can wear 5 different helmets and 11 different armors, that's 55 more models to make to show him in every suit in every helmet. The mod doesn't actually change this, it just relaces Degtyarev model with generic Stalker models, but they have only single version as well - so wearing a Sunrise you will ALWAYS be in the Respirator, in Bulat you will ALWAYS be in the Sphere-12, etc. It's not really an improvement IMO, unless you're in SEVA or Exo.

But ain't some main characters didn't use helmets too?Kovalsky and Strelok,for example.
Here are the possible video endings:
1: medal for Degtyarev 1
2: psiemission files 1
3: product 62 mass produced 1
4: Skadovsk future 3
5: Bloodsucker lair 2
6: Yanov relations 3
7: Scientist's success yay/nay 2
8: Garik's bad/good 2
9: Oasis found/not found 2
11:Trapper yanov infested/clear 2
12:Zulu lives/dies 2
13:Vano lives/dies 2
14:rogue lives/dies 2
15:Sokolov lives/dies 2
16:sych profits 1
17:Noah lives/nothing 2
18:Cardan leaves the zone/finds happiness 2
19:Strelok lives/dies 2
20:Kovalski lives/dies 2
21:Final picture 1
combination no. = (32)*(213)
The only three ways are skadovsk and yanov, the rest are 2 way, except for the obligatory ones.
Not too sure about the mercs though. I havent had an ending yet where they haven't appeared, therefore i 'assume' that they're just like project 62 vid. the rest im positive about. If someone doesnt get their 'merc' vid or can be bothered to find the code, multiply the number by 2. but definitely not 2.4 mil.

I know that if you help Cardan, he and Nitro have an ending where they start a business in the Zone together. I don't know if any other ending mentions Nitro if you don't help Cardan though. Renard45 21:45, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
No, Nitro doesn't appear in anything except Kardan's happy ending. check gamedata\textures\outro for the ogm files
Chikubi 08:19, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Speaking of Nitro, Cardan and Nitro's ending, it's said that they're going to develop a vehicle built for the zone. Do you think that it's a hint from the developers that driving vehicles will be in the next game like in previous builds?
SHIELD unit 10:50, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
If it's similar to the situation in SoC, then I hope they don't put vehicles in since the maps are far too small for them to be required. If they end up with a GTA style world though, with one truly massive map, then they'd be worth it, and welcome as well. fingers crossed that its 4x4 yanov maps :) The original stalker book had a cool concept for Zone transport. Chikubi
Vehicles were fine in the Build 1935 maps, except they broke easily. But I want those maps back, except X-16 was better in the final version of SoC. Pripyat could be bigger too, but SoC Pripyat > CoP Pripyat. Boredgunner 19:17, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
Retarded translation Edit
<text>Nah, that's okay. Fuhgetaboutit.</text>
Yeah, afaik, it's official and everything... the russian version is;
<text>А, ладно. Забудь.</text>
So it's technically accurate, but I must have seen that text a couple of hundred times during the game play, it's the text you say after "I've got some questions" to most npcs, wouldn't it drive you mad? lol
- Yeah, I have the French version and he is called "Degtayrev" by the SBU commander during the final cutscene. I think it's just an alternative spelling or an oversight. Rain Stalker.exe 17:09, August 14, 2015 (UTC)
Since when Degtyarev have connection in the Zone?Edit
Lol. Get out of here stalker, I said come in, don't stand there! (talk) 17:54, October 3, 2015 (UTC)
