Equipment & Artifacts - ArtifactsLast modified: 15/7/2010 20:14:28 CET
This page provides information about all the different artifacts that are available in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. The list is sorted into major categories defining the positive properties provided by the artifacts (eg. Health regeneration or resistance to Impact damage); artifacts within each major category are sorted by name. Since alot of the artifacts are quite common I've only included location descriptions for rare artifacts. Artifacts that has radiation as a negative factor means that, when wearing them, you'll slowly accumulate radiation; you should therefore wear an anti-radiation artifact along with these to prevent this.

Anomaly "Fruit Punch" is able to create such an artifact at the rarest, most extreme collection of physical conditions. The result is a semi-transparent, hard object. A rare and expensive artifact.

It is certain that this artifact is created by the anomaly called "Fruit Punch". When carried on the best, the wounds bleed less, although the body of its owner becomes vulnerable to various burns.

A more common artifact that can be found in many secret stashes: on a cross and in a trash bin, both in Agroprom Research Institute, in a log in Army Warehouses, and in a stash, inside a backpack, and finally in a chest; the latter three are found in Dark Valley.

Formed by the "Fruit Punch" anomaly. The negative qualities of this artifact are compensated by the fact that it heightens the coagulation quality of blood. It's not often that one runs into such an artifact, and they pay well for it too.

This artifact is given as a reward for the optional mission Kill the soldier given by Barkeep and the mission Find the weapon of the Dutyer given by Brome.

Wonderful artifact. Keep it safe - it's good because it only has positive qualities. Scientists can't figure out how to create such an artifact in laboratory conditions.

This is another rare artifact that is hard to come by. It's given as a reward for the optional mission, Kill master stalker, given by Snitch at the Bar. I have also been able to find another near the exit to the Garbage area in Dark Valley. Finally, a third one can be obtained from the stash that contains the Exoskeleton PNB-4UZ in Pripyat. The information about the stash can be found on the corpses of the rookie stalkers in Yantar after you've disabled the psi-emitter there.

This wonderful artifact is formed by the anomaly Springboard. The use of the artifact demands the neutralization of deadly radiation. Expensive and rare, this artifact is extremely interesting for scientific expeditions and other research activity in the Zone.

This is a rare artifact that I have only found five times - the first I found in a secret stash in X18 (and yes, it's a secret stash so you'll need to find information about it first, otherwise it'll be empty) - refer to this image for the location of the stash. The second one is given as a reward by Baldy for the optional mission Kill the traitor. The third I managed to find southeast of stash #9 in Agroprom Research Institute. The last two I found inside the room containing the Monolith "sculpture" in Pripyat. In case you're looking for something that will make you carry more weight, you can exchange a Night Star for the Tourist Suit by picking up an optional mission from Sidorovich.

When wearing this artifact the denaturalization of proteins happens slower. In other words, the flesh is able to endure higher temperatures and burns less. In itself it is an expensive and rare thing.

This artifact can be found on the north-western scrap heap in Garbage - refer to this page for the precise location. I have also found one to the very north in Army Warehouses, slightly north-east of the Merc outpost (the same place where you find the enhanced rifle mission item).

I've found this artifact inside a "scoop" just north of the building containing the entrance to X18 in Dark Valley (refer to this page) and another one in the tower of the Bloodsucker village in Army Warehouses as well as the room containing the Monolith "sculpture" in Pripyat - the latter seems to be a random spawn.

Crystallizes in the anomaly Burnt Fuzz. Naturally takes out the radiation from the organism. That is, through the ears along with some amount of blood. Blood loss is possible also through over openings. Widespread and quite effective, which is the cause for the stable price in the artifact market.

The anomaly Burnt Fuzz very rarely gives rise to this artifact. Blood pressure rises, the body gets rid of a large amount of red blood cells. But along with them the stored radiation leaves the body as well. In his fundamental work titled "Ionization and polarization of the components of rare artifacts", Saharov noted that the content of this formation has a critical stability, and it's not realistic to create such an artifact in lab conditions in the next ten years.

You can find an Urchin in the Agroprom Underground and it is also given as a reward by Lukash for each of the optional missions Destroy the neutral stalker and Protect border.
