- PDA contact biography


  • Macarov is only present at the NPP, and only has a small area of operations even then.
  • This area is roughly in an arc around the entrance to the Sarcophagus and the small complex to its immediate north west.


  • If the player has the opportunity (or elects) to follow the Military fork of the storyline at the power plant, eventually an introduction will be granted with this fellow by Lt Dudaev when the initial military assault has been finalized to conclude the Meet with the military recon leader task.
  • The player will then be tasked to Help the recon unit by providing support with the nearby BTR-70 Armored Personnel Carrier.
  • Although the local squad of twelve Monolith defenders usually devastate Macarov's command, both Lt Dudaev and Macarov have 'immortal' status until after its conclusion.
  • Eliminating the elite Monolith company will gain the player an invite to talk with Macarov, at which point he will give the combination to open the door to the Sarcophagus.
  • At this point both NPCs lose their 'immortal' status.
