New faction ‘Steppenwolfs’

Steppenwolfs are one of the factions that make up the influential organization ‘Brotherhood’ alongside the ‘Scavengers’. The wolves are an elite squad, performing dangerous missions in difficult conditions. They are the Brotherhood's punishing sword. And Steppenwolfs are led by Major Eric Stahl nicknamed Ironhand.

In the past, Steppenwolfs, in general, were military. Later, a lot of people joined the faction.  But the backbone, the basis of the Wolves, was precisely those who survived and helped to survive the civilian population in the most difficult years right after the catastrophe .And now the faction prefers to use the latest developments of military scientists and engineers.

The faction "Steppenwolfs" can only be joined by players who have reached reputation level 25 with Engineers.
