The steel box is, as it's name would imply, a blue metal box made of steel with a combination-lock for security. It appears only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.
This box previously belonged to Snag, who stashed his loot inside and stowed it away inside a Zaporozhets near the Fueling Station in Zaton. Due to a recent earthquake, he gives a job that requires the retrieval of this box from the car that collapsed into a chasm that is now a snork den under the gas station.
The box itself weights a heavy 12.00 kg. It is advised that one takes caution on how much one is carrying before taking it as the fight out of the chasm might require some mobility since the player will be attacked by multiple snorks. However, it is possible to drop the box and pick it up again.
Once you have retrieved this box, regardless of what actions you take with it, this will trigger the Reputation sub missions.
- A Fora-12 with the tier 1 firing rate and weight reduction upgrade installed.
- 3 Scientific medkits
- An AKM-74/2U with the expanded magazine upgrade installed.
- A Steel helmet with the chemical/radiation protection upgrade installed.
- A Soul artifact
Getting Cardan to pry it open is much more lucrative as Snag will take most of the items while the player will be stuck with no more than 2 items.
