Lost Alpha Wiki

The Black Kite is a pistol that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

A real gun for real heroes. It is big, heavy and very destructive. It is not very popular in the Zone due to its price and size. After all, you don't go hunting for elephants every day!

  • Two unique variants of the Black Kite exist:
    • the Big Ben, chambered for 9x39mm
