- PDA contact biography
- Instead of being bushwhacked at the entrance to the Level as was the case in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, Yurik has been recast as the nominal leader of a small unit tasked with displacing the Bandits in the Get control of the hangar assault in the Storyline.
- The other member of his unit will be the player.
- Yurik is better armed than in his previous incarnation.
- If he survives the assault, he will take up residence afterwards in the small shed to the rear of the Hangar with Seriy.
- He retains his unusual partially camouflaged Leather jacket in the Lost Alpha.
- There is a stash at the Lost Factory named Yurik backpack. Although the PDA description for this stash might be considered to be consistent with his persona, there is no evidence that he had any previous dealings in that location.
