In-game PDA map location
|“|| We're at the bridge, waiting for the mercenaries to arrive from the direction of the bandit camp any time soon. Come back to the bridge, we need you here - it's going to get pretty nasty here before long.|
Meet Lebedev is a primary mission segment in Clear Sky.
Acquiring the MissionEdit
Complete the Transmit coordinates task to receive the Meet Lebedev mission.
Mission: Meet LebedevEdit
As you go from the Army Warehouses to the Bridge to Limansk, the only danger along the way is a Bloodsucker or two in the forest. You'll hear a roar just before it attacks. When you get near the bridge, Lebedev calls you over to him and a new task displays on the screen (but not on the PDA until later): Help Clear Sky capture the bridge. Lebedev is using the van near the guard house as cover. He starts talking when you're close and sends you to the guard house (a.k.a. tower) to cover Leshiy. The Meet Lebedev mission is complete and a new task displays: Assume firing position.
Mission: Assume firing positionEdit
Go up the stairs on the east side of the guard house and around to the doorway on the south side to complete the Assume firing position mission and get a new task: Wait until the stalker squad arrives.
Mission: Wait until the stalker squad arrivesEdit
Leshiy's squad comes in from the north over a stationary bridge on the other side of the canal. You can help them by clearing out any Bandits on the north side of the tunnel and there may be one or two on the south end of the stationary bridge. The Mercenaries stop at the south end of the stationary bridge to complete the Wait until the stalker squad arrives mission and a new task displays: Cover mercenaries.
Mission: Cover mercenariesEdit
With Clear Sky's help, you now have to clear out all the Bandits on the far side of the canal. There may be one or two Bandits at the far end of the southern ruins, but when the way is clear the Mercenaries come down the hill and set up in the ruins on the north. The Cover mercenaries mission is complete and a new task displays: Cover the mercenary near the control panel.
Mission: Cover the mercenary near the control panelEdit
One by one, the Mercenaries from Leshiy's squad make their way up to the control panel to lower the bridge. As one gets picked off, another takes his place until they are all dead and the mission fails, or until the bridge is lowered all the way. Periodically, Leshiy calls out a warning about a sniper on the hill and the mission then changes to Eliminate the snipers on the hill.
Mission: Eliminate the snipers on the hillEdit
When Leshiy warns about a sniper, a Bandit appears at the very top of the hill overlooking the area and starts shooting at the Mercenary near the control panel. When one of Leshiy's men gets killed, you get a Task failed for Cover the mercenary near the control panel. However, you get a new Cover the mercenary near the control panel task as another Mercenary takes over at the control panel. When you've killed the last sniper (usually five or six) both the Eliminate the snipers on the hill and Cover the mercenary near the control panel missions are complete and the PDA lists Help Clear Sky capture the bridge as the primary task.
Mission: Help Clear Sky capture the bridgeEdit
As mentioned in the Mission: Meet Lebedev section, you acquire this task as you approach the Bridge to Limansk. But the task doesn't display on the PDA until you complete Cover the mercenary near the control panel. Once the bridge has been lowered, Lebedev orders Clear Sky across while he and Leshiy thank each other and Scar for their part in the capture of the bridge. The Help Clear Sky capture the bridge mission is complete and a new task displays: Scout the road through Limansk. You also get a secondary task to collect your reward, which is 50,000 rubles and a FT-200M assault rifle. Only, you have to go back to the Clear Sky base to collect.
- If you have any equipment upgrades or trades to do, it's best to do them before entering Limansk as you will not meet any more traders or technicians. Once you cross the bridge, only squad leaders can repair your gear but not upgrade it. You can return to any of the previous levels/areas to purchase or upgrade better armour or weapons before entering Limansk. One strategy is to use the transition point to the Garbage, which is close to the base, and have the guide at the Flea Market take you to the neutral camp. Then have that guide take you to the Camp near caper when you're ready to start the Meet Lebedev mission.
- Once you cross the Bridge to Limansk, you won't encounter any Mutants. So, if you have a favorite weapon for mutant-mashing, it's just extra weight going through Limansk. Also once you cross the Bridge to Limansk there are no more Artifacts to be found beyond this point.
