  • Glukhar will spawn at the beginning of the raid at the "K" storages, train station, black bishop, and black pawn buildings near the heli-pad, in the bunker basement, and near or inside the black knight building.
    • If he spawns near the K storages, he might move inside the train station upon train arrival.

Behavior

Glukhar and his many guards are extremely hostile. It's very unlikely to find success while fighting in any open areas. Small hallways and closed rooms are preferable.

As for Glukhar, because of his high chest health he can withstand high damage bullets that would otherwise instantly kill other enemies. The only effective means of killing Glukhar quickly are head shots. Glukhar's ASh-12 12.7x55 assault rifle will kill most targets almost instantly.

Glukhar and his guards are very accurate. If his location is known, stay away from windows and his direct line of sight as it is very difficult to win in a long-ranged battle with him.

Glukhar will not seek out player Scavs, however will engage low karma level player Scavs who come close to him, keep in mind, guards exist to protect Glukhar so if he is far away or dead you can get as close as you want to guards. If you are of a high scav karma level you are free to get as close as you want to him and his guards.

If he spawns at temporary storage unit (K) and train arrives, Glukhar and his followers will move to depot (Rook) to exit from Reserve on train. Up to 2 of his followers will guard train on ramps while Glukhar and others stay inside of depot. Remain followers might patrol around depot or guard front entrance.

Glukhar and his guards will stay near each other at all times and his guards will follow him to wherever he goes. One or two of Glukhar's guards can be seen patrolling away from the main group. If any guards are still remain when Glukhar is killed, they will protect the body until their is no longer a threat, in which they will then wonder around their spawn area aimlessly.

Followers

Glukhar always has 6 followers with a wide assortment of weapons and gear.

The Guards have a wide variety of weapons, usually Assault rifles that are usually loaded with tracer ammunition, primary or back up Shotguns, an occasional Designated marksman rifle, and primary or backup Submachine guns. They typically have high-grade Armor vests, and tier 3-6 helmets that sometimes have visors.

Glukhar's followers will not engage non-hostile player Scavs, unless they provoke Glukhar by coming close to him or they have sufficient scav karma. Glukhar's guards will not follow any instruction from player scavs (follow, stop, and stay command gestures)

Glukhar's guards can be told apart by their camo or striped pants (similar to Reshala's guards) as well as tattoos on some of their arms, although appearance varies from guards.

All the guards names are one-word nicknames, similar to Scav Raiders.

Strategy

The best way to kill Glukhar quickly is to get in close and make him your first target. He can be distinguished by his black T-shirt with grey pants and, at most, a light plate carrier, compared to his Guards who wear assorted types of camouflaged clothing and heavy armor. Upon seeing the player, the guards will attempt to either circle Glukhar to protect him or overwhelm the player(s) with force.

The Guards often push the player(s) in pairs or try to perform flanking maneuvers, however, they typically try to stay in a close radius of each other to provide support. Additionally, one-two guards stay back with the Boss, unless the Boss has already been killed, in which case they will seek out nearby players. Due to their ability to push players hard and fast while having a base of accurate covering fire, it is recommended to engage the Guards as close as possible.

The Guards are also capable of using grenades and flashbangs, so groups of players will need to beware of their spacing when engaging the Guards.

    Trivia

    • Glukhar (Глухарь) in Russian means "wood grouse", largest bird in the grouse family. It is also Russian police slang for a cold case.
    • Glukhar's tattoo is translated as "Naval Infantry", implying he was a serviceman before he turned to criminal.
    • Other than Shturman, Glukhar and his followers are the only non-player Scavs which can spawn with a weapon equipped in the "On back" slot.
    • If Glukhar's guards (specifically the Assault) see you kill him, they'll scream out "Glukhar! Fuck!" (Glukhar! Suka!), implying that he has a tight bond with his crew.
