Free the Dutyer from prison is a mission featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

Description Edit

Bandits! Those sons of bitches were taking me to the old factory. I don't know what they were planning to do with me there. I saw them take another guy in there before and I never saw him after that. They've got another one of ours, Serega. They keep him in the basement... in that big unfinished building there. Help him, would ya? Otherwise they'll... you know...

Acquiring the mission Edit

The mission is given by the Captive Dutyer you save with the help of Bullet in the Dark Valley. So the Free the Dutyer quest needs to be completed in order to obtain this assignment.

Completing the quest Edit

The player must storm the main Bandit Base in the Dark Valley, find the cell in the basement and free the prisoner from the cell. The target's coordinates are marked in the player's PDA.

Note, when you enter the bandit base and you are fast enough you will see another Duty member and will hear two bandits who have enough of him and want to shoot him, rescue him, give him a weapon and he will storm the entrance of the X-18 lab by himself.

Reward Edit

There is no reward for completing the mission other than a slight reputation boost for Duty faction, and a good conscience.

Bugs Edit

  • For some users, the button will not function (it appears as green), and Shaggy will not exit his cell. Workaround is to exit and re-enter the map. [1]
  • It is possible to get stuck in the cell after opening it, with the entrance being blocked by the Duty scout.

Background Edit

  • In Shadow of Chernobyl version, mission can be sometimes completed without player's intervention. This happens likely due to bug.
