Described as a "vast machinery graveyard", the Garbage was in fact the main dumping ground for ruined machines and vehicles, as well as irradiated junk from after the 1986 disaster. Because of this, the area is dominated by huge, heavily irradiated piles of discarded objects among which useful items or the occasional artifact can be found. Loners and Bandits are always trying to lay claim to the best loot, most often leading to fighting and bloodshed. Notable sites within the Garbage area include an old train hangar, a fenced-in scrapyard, and a ruined office building.
Shadow of Chernobyl Edit
In Shadow of Chernobyl, the Garbage is the second area the player visits. Upon arriving at the Garbage, the Marked One immediately comes upon Yurik being held up by three Bandits. A couple of quests are available at the Garbage, as well as the story mission to contact Seriy.
Its a good place to harvest Artifacts, especially the top of the piles.
Clear Sky Edit
In Clear Sky, the Garbage is contested ground in the all-out factions war between the Loners and the Bandits. Scar arrives there from the Cordon and can choose to aid either faction in the fighting. A number of quests are available, primarily from squad leaders, and three story mission objectives also take place in the Garbage.
A single location has been cut from the game, namely Black Digger's stash. Furthermore, originally, the player was intended to use the catacombs to reach Agroprom Underground and Yantar, which was not accessible by conventional means.
Call of Pripyat Edit
In Call of Pripyat, Sultan once mentions the location.
The most prevalent enemy presence at the Garbage are the Bandits. In Shadow of Chernobyl, several Bandit gangs have made their home there and terrorize the outnumbered Loners. In Clear Sky, the organized Bandit clan has actually built its HQ in the train hangar and it is there that Scar can join their ranks.
The mutant threat is fairly light, consisting mainly of blind dogs, flesh and boars. As part of a quest given by Wild Napr, the player may encounter Snorks which will later respawn at different locations throughout the Garbage area. Bloodsuckers are also known to sometimes wander into the area from Agroprom or the Dark Valley.
Notable characters Edit
