Hello there! You came right in time, I'm just packing up to go hunting. Do me a favor, not for service, but as a sign of friendship. Arrange a couple of rest spots for my way back: the trip is long, so I'll have to stop for a breather somewhere. The places should be safe, leave a Russian MRE and a bottle of water for each, agreed? At the same time, remember how to survive if you get caught with your pants down. I've got some stashes hidden here and there, for example, but you don't need to know about them yet.



You did it? Thank you. I just got ready for the trip, so you're just in time. See you in a couple of days, fella.

In both ZB-014 and ZB-016 on Woods, look for the broken crate in the first room and a "place" marker will come up. You have to place two seperate items per bunker. It takes 20 seconds to place each of the items. If you release the key or are otherwise interrupted, the timer will reset. Additionally, checking exits will interrupt your placement timer. After placing the items the player does not need to extract, the quest is completed whether you die or not.
