Lost Alpha Wiki

ANV-01 "North Star" is an item featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

An advanced modification of a military night vision device, performed by the scientists stationed in the Lake Yantar bunker. By adding a sliver from the 'Flash' artefact, the goggles gaines an unrivaled picture quality, along with an eerily bright, white picture. The nickname it was given was supposed to be poetic, describing how these goggles are supposed to guide their wearers just like the North Star, but rumors are that the one that came up with it was a fan of 'girly chinese cartoons'.
