The Flame is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all canon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games except S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

No, this won't hurt you, but it's rather hot. It emits a bigger glow than your average artifact, but that is to be expected with a nature like fire.
- Inventory description, v1.30013 - 1.4005

Born in the 'Burner' anomaly. This artifact forms in areas of high thermal activity. Produces powerful infra-red emissions, which intensify metabolic processes, healing wounds before its bearer's very eyes. As this artifact is very rare, it is extremely valuable. Emits radiation.
- v1.4007


v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • Loses any bulletproofing that it had up to v1.4002, becomes less useful to the player, but sells for 18000.
  • Gets assigned a parent anomaly.
  • Property set is reworked to be a 'bleed control' artifact.
  • Exceptionally difficult to spawn from Burners...


v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • Very useful (but progressively less so as the game evolved) for its positive properties and the endurance 'hit' may usually be compensated for.
  • A mid to higher-level bleeding control artifact.
  • By the time the player finds an instance of this artifact, they may well have superior bleed control built into their suit.


v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • Instead of being an artifact that the player may synthesize, it now becomes a required ingredient in the artifact recipe for the Gold beads artifact.
