Times are harsh these days, you know, all means are good to survive, even those not the safest for your health. For example, those stimulants, folks see them more frequently in the region. In fact, it's a narcotic of some sort, I feel that terragroup got involved here for sure. But anyway, you will have to learn how to apply them in combat, these drugs do not only kill, but also help you to survive.



So I see you've made it. How's your head? Dizzy? Feeling like you're going throw? Those are side effects, you have to pay some price for staying alive, even pay your health. But anyway, listen here, I have some recommendations how to reduce those side effects, so next time you would feel better.


  • Be under the effect of any stimulant (both buffs and debuffs) while killing 15 Scavs on Woods.
  • Provisions that gives skill buffs, such as the Hot Rod or Milk can be used.
  • Having the Painkiller effect doesn't count.
