Postal Wiki

POSTAL 2: Штопор ЖжОт!(translated as Corkscrew RuLes!) is a licensed addon for POSTAL 2 that was developed by Avalon Style Entertainment and published by Akella. Storywise, it has nothing to do with the base game, existing as a Russian adaptation of POSTAL 2.


The game stars a man known as Shtopor (more commonly known as "Corkscrew", who looks very much like the Postal Dude) who wakes up in a hospital to find that someone has stolen his penis. Journey through Muhosransk City on a journey to find your stolen sex organ and kill the bastard responsible.


Gameplay additions includes a new location to explore, changes to make the game more Russian (Rubles instead of Dollars), Vodka, and three new weapons:

The errand based gameplay of POSTAL 2 returns, taking place over the course of four days (Понедельник, Вторник, Среда, and Четверг — translated Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) as you interact with the various inhabitants of Muhosransk City.

Unlike the POSTAL 2 base game, there is no pacifist option though most errands can be completed without resorting to violence. Another prominent action, the ability to piss, is unavailable throughout most of the game due to the nature of the story.

Steam Port[]

The expansion was ported to POSTAL 2 Complete by ensomnee (Also known as Evil, creator of Nick's Co-op and collaborator of the Happy Night mod), and was released via the Steam workshop on June 25th, 2017. Later on it got also an updated ModDB release on February 20th, 2022 which works both on the GOG and Steam version of the game and features some changhes and imporovements as well as Polish translation by Man Chrzan (creator of xPatch and Eternal Damnation steam port).

The workshop version is not supported anymore (due to techincal issues with the workshop system) and might not work on current game build. The author recommends to download and install it from the ModDB page instead.

Main Features[]

This version boasts several improvements over the initial release with Russian weapons replacing the standard ones, new effect for the Vodka, a new player model for Shtopor, the ability to piss like a woman, bug fixes and Co-op. There are some minor differences between the available port versions.

  • Workshop Release: In addition to things above it also introduced English subtitles, interface and HUD images.
  • ModDB Release: Poorly done English subtitles were removed and replaced by dubbing, added Polish subtitles and HUD images (Languages can be switched in-game), workshop mods support, contains source code, compile tools and level editor.


No official US localization exists as it was only meant for the Russian market. However, a version was released In Japan on October 27th 2006, under the title " ポスタル2 ロシアより愛をこめて英語版 日本語マニュアル付" (translation: "POSTAL 2: From Russia with Love") with all the voice lines dubbed in English by the original Russian cast.

The unofficial POSTAL 2 Complete port features 3 language options.

  • Russian
  • English (Dubbing and UI)
  • Polish (Subtitles and UI)


Though there is no official release, the original complete game is readily available on ModDB (Links below) with it's UI translated into English. The rest of the game (dialogue, assets, etc.) are in Russian (as they should be).

An English walkthrough written by a Steam user named Alien can be found in the link above. Many thanks to him from the English speaking community.


  • In order to play the game, you need the old Russian version of POSTAL 2 (RU-1337) installed as the game relies on the base files to launch via a batch command file. Due to this strange choice in implementation, some consider this expansion to be just a Mod of POSTAL 2 instead of a full-blown expansion.
  • In addition to the above, Akella released a compatibility patch which downgrades the Apocalypse Weekend version (1409). Why downgrade? Who knows.
  • While there is some support in the Russian speaking Postal fanbase, it's generally considered non-canon and (after the meltdown with Akella over Postal III) never brought up by RWS. However, in light of renewed interests, the expansion did receive a page on RWS' website.
  • The name of the add-on "Штопор ЖжОт" comes from two things: The name of the character (Shtopor which means Corkscrew) and the word "zhzhot" which means to express agreement or appreciation with the English equivalent being "rules". Used in this fashion, the title translates to "Shtopor RuLes" or "Corkscrew Rules". Some people in the POSTAL community also refer to it as "Corkscrew Rocks" or "Corkscrew On Fire" as it is considered to be more accurate translation.
  • Most of the Posters seen around Muhosransk City are from the Russian website,
  • The music day1_terrorists.ogg (plays when terrorists attack the Community Center) is a German song. It's "Keine Platz fur Dich" by the punk band Der Steinkopf.
  • The theme song of the game is called "Доктор Штопор" (translation: Doctor Corkscrew) by Александр Пушной (Alexander Pushnoy).
  • Most of the music comes from Russian punk bands.
