Started my first Stalker run...


Recommended Posts

So. Many. Predators.


A bear in front of Trapper's cabin? Not cool.

(Sadly I was hoping for more challenge without more predators. I know, I know, it says it in the difficulty description.)

Day 4 in ML, still don't have a single tool or weapon. These animals are definitely going to get me... lol

The bear can be there on any difficulty. Stalker only jacks up the wolves to 11

You can do a custom game with worse weather and less loot (though Stalker still has stuff everywhere), but Voyager wolves for example

Wow, I was in ML for a long time and never saw a bear there.  A moose yes, but not a bear. Guess I dodged it. Although that moose broke a few ribs! XD

I think Bear spawn-points are determined at the start of each run.
(or perhaps when we first enter a region - I don't claim to know for sure which)

There are four possible spots for a bear den that I know of in Mystery Lake.  Some runs we might get all 4 appearing... some runs we might not have any at all.  :)

I started on voyager and skipped stalker entirely in favour of moving to Interloper, precisely because I wanted to get mugged less by wildlife while advancing difficulty vs environment. After I began experimenting with custom, I pretty much favour it. I enjoy harsh conditions and less wolves so I can explore more without making it a wolf obstacle course. When you turn on custom, it lets you choose stalker - this will give you base stalker stats - then you can go to the wolfs tab and bears tab and switch them from  high to medium or low and keep the rest of the stalker settings. ☺️

With the wolf as the icon of Stalker, it is not super surprising that they are quite abundant in this mode! :)

I can relate to this post because I have started my first Stalker run recently (fortunately it's been lucky so far as I have gotten the important tools, the Rifle and Revolver...)

And I never saw a bear myself anywhere near Trapper's Homestead, but I always see one on Mystery Lake itself and have just survived a close encounter with one near the destroyed foresty lookout.

Anyways have some good luck on your first 🐺 run! 💜
