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

Relatively toxic beads with somewhat good effects despite its deadliness. Most stalkers sell these like they do with other beads.

Born in the 'Burner' anomaly. Much about this artifact remains a complete mystery to scientists. At the same time, it is known for certain that emissions produced by pulses in its thicker sections force blood in open wounds to clot quicker, forming a protective scab. One of the most noticeable effects of this artifact is the increased speed of bleeding control. Emits radiation.

v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • There are much more useful artifacts for improving bulletproof capability than this dubious item (with the exception of v1.4005)
  • Possibly useful for bleeding control, if you can get it without being incinerated.


v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • There is a recipe for the synthesis of this artifact for use with an Artifact Merger. It consists of combining one Mama's Beads with a Stone Blood and waiting for 2 hours. Mercifully, the recipe is unavailable to the player under normal circumstances.
