The anomaly snatches its victims up in the air and spins them at a breakneck speed. The exact nature of the Whirligig remains unknown. The anomaly can be recognized by a light whirlwind of dust above and by body fragments scattered in the vicinity. Victims caught on its outer rim - far enough from the maximum effect zone at the center - can escape the Whirligig with relatively minor injuries. Forms three types of artifacts: Stone Blood, Mean chunk and Soul.

Description

Notes

  • Looks harmless and produces pretty 'oil-rainbow' patterns when triggered by bolts.
  • Because of their general ubiquity, useful tools for the experienced stalker that uses them in mutant combat.
  • Inflicts gravitational shock which may be mitigated with suitable impact protection.
  • The Liver was cut as a possible spawn product from the anomaly after v1.4005, renamed (Flesh Chunk) and assigned to the Witches' Jelly family.

Trivia

  • The listing of the artifact Meat Chunk at the end of the description is misspelled "Mean chunk" in the game code.
