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.

Born in the 'Whirligig' anomaly. It radiates pleasant warmth and soothes. This property is caused by a special field that the artifact generates around itself. Inside this field, all neural impulses slightly change their structure. Emits radiation.

v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • Almost any Whirligig might spawn the Soul but there are no fixed spawns on the gameboard.
  • A useful "health restore" artifact.
v1.4002 - 1.4005:
  • Gains several undesirable negative properties.
  • Renamed, for no sensible reason.
  • Given a totally unrelated and different property set.


All versions:
v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • Can be spawned in the very weak whirligig near the radioactive bus in Rostok with little risk to the player.
  • Another spawn point for 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.
  • The nearby Blind Dog pack closer to Milo may also be productive but these locations present risks for the player.
  • The "Rostok spawnpoint" is severely detuned, the area becomes re-patrolled as Duty re-establish in the area and mutants are less easy to lead into the anomaly.


v1.30013 - 1.4005:
  • The Soul is an essential ingredient for Artifact Merger synthesis of the useful Rock artifact, as well as the more useless Liver.
  • The "Heart" is a required ingredient for synthesis of a Crystal artifact.
