Artifacts | Additional data STALKER Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

You will be finding new artifacts very often during your time spent in the Zone. They're not everywhere, however you will come across these objects in most of the available districts. You shouldn't have any major problems finding the artifacts. Most of them can be found on the ground. Additionally, you should be able to spot them from larger distances, especially during the night. Sadly, some of the rare artifacts are usually well hidden. I've displayed some of these locations in my walkthrough. You will have to be on a look out for secret passages, stashes, crates, lockers and other closed objects. It's also going to be difficult to reach some of the artifacts, especially when they can be found on rooftops or inside rooms accessible only from the roof area. You should also check bodies of fallen enemies. Some of them were carrying precious artifacts, especially well equipped soldiers. Sadly, you won't be allowed to carry too many artifacts with you, because each of these objects has a certain weight. It's not much, however it's going to be a large number if you have 20-30 artifacts in your inventory. I wouldn't recommend just throwing them away. Instead, try carrying all artifacts to the nearest trading point, mostly because you're going to earn A LOT of money by selling them to the trader. You won't have to sell all artifacts, because you will have an opportunity to use up to five different objects. Sadly, some of the more common artifacts have side effects and you will have to remember about that while trying to attach them to your belt. I wouldn't recommend choosing artifacts which will expose you to small doses of radiation. The same goes with the endurance bar. You will need as much Endurance points as possible. Thankfully, some of the better artifacts will grant you with these points. I'd strongly recommend having at least one of these Artifacts on your belt. As for the rest of the slots, having artifacts which will extend your life meter is also very important. I will display you some of the most common artifacts. You shouldn't have any major problems finding these objects. Read my description before you decide to put them on your belt.
