Mutants are an integral feature of the canon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games and also the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha standalone game which attempts to reintroduce all of the creatures previously seen, and additionally, those previously cut from the canon series during their development cycles.
- Mutants are creatures that are found exclusively within The Zone. There are many rumors and speculation surrounding their origins, but most signs point to animal and human experimentation by scientists operating within laboratories beneath the Zone.
- Despite their origins within the various canon games, mutants in Lost Alpha may exhibit different behaviour(s), engage in different or multiple modes of combat, posses quite different defense abilities and even have alternate escape strategies.
- Consequently, attempts to equate (for example) a canon bloodsucher with a Lost Alpha Bloodsucker might result in the player undermining his or her situation.
- Mutants fall into four basic category types:
