The Crescent is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

This actually smells... quite good! Although, I don't think anyone would try a bite for obvious reasons...
- Inventory description


  • Not yet observed in the open.
  • Rarely looted from the bodies of dead NPCs.


  • Has some beneficial properties that may help the player early in the game.
  • Is much more useful in v1.4000+ due to the immense weight carry enhancement.
  • Can be made to spawn in Vortex anomalies as noted in Artifact Spawns, usually by converting a Boar or a Flesh (v1.4000+)
  • The bugged negative hunger feature may be offset with one or more compensating Cake artifacts.
  • Hunger feature is still bugged in v1.4005, despite the "-0" value it will starve you within minutes.


  • The artifact may be created using an Artifact Merger, however, the recipe remains unavailable under normal circumstances.
