Lost Alpha Wiki

The Fireball is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. canon games.

Crystallizes in the anomaly Scorcher. Fights well with radioactivity, though the heightened rate of energy exchange wears out the muscles of the moving apparatus. Won't be able to run for long. Artifact emits heat.

Born in the 'Burner' anomaly. Even though Fireball is a thermal artifact, it can be handled without far of being burned. This artifact is valued for its ability to maintain a temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit within a small radius, virtually regardless of its surroundings. Emits radiation.

v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • Not an easy artifact to find.
  • An occasional specimen may be found at the Dark Valley anomaly field spawn point well east of the Bandit Base.
  • Anomaly Fields are disabled, implying that this source will not be available.


(all versions):
  • One can be found from Bar level, just before entering Yantar, inside a fenced area which is difficult to jump over. Carry a fuel barrel next to the fence and jump from it, or drive a car near the fence and jump from it. The artifact is in the end of a pipe.
v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • May also be found in the Gym tank stash in Dead City, but obtaining the coordinates can be difficult.


v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • An essential ingredient for the Artifact Merger synthesis of the Flame artifact.
  • The Burner coding is faulty resulting in no spawns other than at the Anomaly Field in Dark Valley (all versions to 1.4005)
