Anton has a son named Oleg who is later captured by the Savage Cannibals of The Great Worm Cult, which leads Artyom to help Anton rescue his son, upon which entering the station they are paralyzed and captured by two hunters known as Vovan and Sharap.
Upon being rescued by Melnik and his group of Stalkers, Anton becomes paralyzed after taking an excessive dose of paralyzing poison from the needles shot at him by the cannibals, and is then carried on a makeshift stretcher through the trip to D6. Anton is only awoken after the death of his son Oleg, when he steps into the biomass under the Kremlin. Anton is described as bitter and resentful towards this event, stating: "I have the time now...'" after Artyom asks for his help in launching the rockets from D6.
- Although not depicted in the video game, Anton in the novel is in fact the reason they are able to launch the Rockets on the Dark Ones, and could be the inspiration for the character of Vladimir in the game.
