The Soul 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.

Very rarely found artifact, located near the Merry-go-Round anomaly. Only a very few manage to find this artifact, and few have even seen it. It has a nice shape and an equally nice price.

  • About the only repeatable occurrence of this artifact in the wild, is in Construction Site in or near the anomaly cluster near a defunct bus. Also the general area where a Duty squad may be found if the player has joined that faction. These are random spawns (to v1.4002)
  • Can also be found in Swamps level, in a well hidden container under the pipe, little way from where you first enter the level.
  • Has been found also from Pripyat Stadium, near Monolith snipers.
  • Another potentially repeatable (game-to-game) specimen is well concealed in a copse south-west of the military checkpoint in the Countryside. Also protected by Boar. This is also a random spawn.
  • Other than this, finds tend to be random when looting corpses and other game-specific rare artifacts seem to be more likely (Accumulator, Liver, variously coloured 'beads')
  • Can be found in Rostok in a wagon near the entrance to Yantar.
  • Sometimes found in the Trade Route Tunnel in Cordon together with Stone Blood after leading the zombies into the Whirligig anomalies (part of Sid's Eliminate Cordon zombies task)
  • See also: Artifact Spawns.


  • Fairly effective for healing purposes, at least until a good stock of Sauron's eye artifacts can be acquired (v1.3003. From v1.4002 the Sauron's eye is rendered less functional and becomes highly toxic in v1.4005)


  • The Soul is an essential ingredient for Artifact Merger synthesis of the useful Rock artifact.
