Acquaintance Quest Dialogue

Well hello there! I’ve been watching you for a long time – I’ve hear about your good and bad deeds. In our difficult time it is hard to remain the same person as you were before – you have to choose the side. So here I am on the side of those who clean our land from various scum, the ones who drag us further into the dark abyss. If you would like to join, I will be glad of any help. Mechanic let me know about your track record, says one can rely on you. Given the circumstances I have no more will power to stay away from what is happening around us. At first, I thought that it would be the best to sit out in the wilderness in my reserve. But after what the local bandits started doing, after all these murders and robberies, after what they did to our city… In short, I will definitely need your services. And first of all, I need you to get me some supplies. The hermit’s lifestyle really depleted my provisions.

Thank you. Food in our time is a hard-to-get supply, it’s hard to survive without it. Okay, we can talk about business then, when you have time. Come visit me from time to time, boy.

First of all, this quest does not require any type of guide, as all of these items can be found in food crates such as the ones on Reserve and Woods. Iskra Lunch Ration packs can also be found in black cubical weapon crates and are a guaranteed spawn on Labs. Nevertheless, you don’t need to go there. Instead, you can complete this quest by looting the USEC camps on Woods, or heading on Reserve in the Black Bishop building. It has a kitchen too, and it goes underground where multiple food crates can be found. Check the image below, so you know which building you should head in. Make sure you go there from the south side.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
