Lost Alpha Wiki

The RPG-7u is a heavy weapon that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

A grenade launcher developed in the 1960s. Such grenade launchers are stored in large quantities in army depots, from where they are transferred to the Zone. Such weapon is rare for stalkers: its huge dimensions and heavy weight make it unpopular, though it is indispensable for some missions.

  • One is given to the player to defeat the MI-24 Helicopters at the Great Metal Factory during the process of the story. Do to not sell the RPG-7u to Petrenko before or during the mission, it can not be bought back and will prevent the player from completing the mission.
  • Ammo is very scarce (however some can be found on top of the Service Station in Darkscape).
  • This have an upgrade tree in DC v1.4005. But not all RPGs can be upgraded. The technicians don't count the RPG from Petrenko as a weapon for some reason therefore it is not even visible in the upgrade screen. However the RPG from the darkscape busstop can be upgraded.
  • Weapon is not changed by the PRM Weapon Pack in v1.4007


  • Before v1.4005 the durability was nearly unlimited (~90000 rounds), most probably due to a misplaced decimal point.
  • The common-used english name rocket propelled grenade is actually a backronym.
