Armor and Stealth suits

Before entering the train car at Armory Station, you can purchase a Stealth Suit for 100 military cartridges from the vendor across from the Ammo Exchange. There is a vendor next to that one that sells an Armor Suit that decreases damage. Both suits can be worn simultaneously. A similar Armor Suit is also sold by a vendor next to the Ammo Exchange in Polis.

Nightvision goggles

In addition to buying the Sneaking Suit at the Armory Station, you can get a pair of nightvision goggles at Front Lines. While in control of Artyom, turn around, and follow the train tracks. The nightvision goggles will be in a red breaker box guarded by two soldiers.

Extending filter

Avoid jumping and sprinting to extend the use of your filter.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series references

    1. While in the Library, the two rangers will say the titles of several books. One of them is "Roadside Picnic" (1977) by the Strugatsky brothers, which is the book that Andrei Tarkovsky's 1979 movie "STALKER" was based on, which then was the inspiration behind S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow Of Chernobyl.

    2. The first person you can talk to resembles a "loner" Stalker and says "Take it easy bro!"

    3. The scene with the campfire with the guitar.

    4. The winter mask that are on dead people.
