Shturman and his followers spawn in and around the Sawmill location in the center of the woods. Shturman will often spawn in the trees just outside of the Sawmill, especially the trees past the log piles on the North side of the sawmill, and in the South West trees past the red log warehouses. He will usually be standing next to a tree or bush as cover/camouflage when he is in these locations.
They may either stay around a small radius until they engage with other players, or patrol clockwise around the lumberyard.
On 19-06-2021 Shturman, and his guards, were able to spawn on Reserve for a limited time event.
Shturman and his two followers will engage the player at a long range protecting the sawmill area of the woods. They prefer to keep their distance, as they are not suited for close quarters combat. They also like to take positions between hard cover, or camouflage themselves with the environment. Additionally, it is not unheard of for one of the guards to flank or rush the player(s) while Shturman and the other guard hold positions and keep the player(s) pinned down. It is also good to note that Shturman will fire warning shots (Usually 3-5) before locking onto his target, these warning shots only occur if the target is far enough away where they pose no immediate threat to Shturman himself.
When both followers are killed Shturman tends to take shelter in places like wooden barracks.
Shturman always has two followers, each with high caliber weapons and deadly accuracy.
Their weapons alternate between various semi-automatic rifles and an occasional VSS, and also have class 3 -> class 6 Armor vests. Each rifle is loaded with ammo that is ideal for shredding all types of armor, so one should beware of staying out in the open for too long.
All of the followers' last name is Svetloozerskiy, similar to the Reshala Guards
It is recommended that the player(s) take the initiative when engaging the Scav Boss. As the boss and his guards are often spread out, it is best to first recon the area and figure out where they are, then eliminate one of them, preferably the boss, with a single, well-placed headshot with more than 62 flesh damage, anything lower than 62 will take 2 headshots to kill. As neither the boss nor his guards wear helmets, headshots are the best way to go, given that guards are often decently armored and the boss has high chest health.
Unless one is confident in their abilities, it is highly recommended to not engage in long-range combat, as the Scav Boss and his guards are equipped for this exact purpose and snipe with deadly accuracy. As such, it is recommend to close the distance as much as possible, especially given that the Scav Boss and his guards have semi-automatic weapons, and, on occasion, bolt action Mosins. However, the guards do utilize grenades, so one should be as careful as possible when moving up.
