Initial Equipment

Players are sent an SV-98 7.62x54R bolt-action sniper rifle and a Leatherman Multitool via the messenger upon accepting the quest. It is recommended to completely disassemble the SV-98 as it does not need to be functional for the quest. The removed parts can be sold. Place the multitool in your special equipment slot or secure container to avoid losing it upon death.


Take the SV-98 sniper rifle and Leatherman Multitool with you to the Shoreline map.

Navigate to the southern part of the map, specifically the beach next to the gas station.

Look for a small rowboat on the beach near the gas station. This is the location where you need to stash the gear.

Approach the rowboat and hold down the interact key. This will initiate a countdown of 30 seconds.

During the countdown, one of the two items (either the sniper rifle or the multitool) will be removed from your inventory and placed in the boat. After the countdown, the other item will be placed as well.

Once both items are stashed in the boat, your objective is complete. You can now extract from the raid.

Note that extraction does not need to occur in the same raid where you place the items. As long as you have successfully stashed the gear, you can extract it in subsequent raids.
