mop-up operation7 August 2009
S.t.a.l.k.e.r.s.! A wave of mutants is approaching Prypiat. Everyone in the city area must leave immediately. If you do not have the opportunity to evacuate, then find shelter and wait. The military with Duty fighters are on the way, armed with brand-new "Eliminator" shotguns, designed specifically for monster extermination in enclosed spaces.
If you wish to join the mop-up operation, the slick “Eliminator” will be your best help on the mission. Find out the gun's characteristics in the Weapons section.
First aid5 August 2009
It's no brainer you need at least a couple first-aid kits before going to the Zone. And, of course, you better take a special military one, which includes not only medicine but also a kit to remove shrapnel and bullets from your body.
Frankly speaking, such medkit is rare but since recently it is on sale with traders at the Duty base. Hurry up, the stock is limited. Find more details about the kit in our Items section.
Gas anomaly3 August 2009
Be careful, after the latest Emission acid anomaly known as "Gas" appeared throughout the Zone. But every cloud has a silver lining and in this case the anomaly forms a rare artifact named "Soul".
Before your rush to seek the "Soul", make sure you visit the Anomalies section to read more details about the new anomalous formation of the Zone.
Black Kite17 July 2009
Rumours flooded the Zone saying that Hog, the leader of mercenaries, put up his well-known pistol "Black Kite" for sale. If you like big game hunting and want to add this legendary "pocket cannon" to your armoury, then head to the trader in the Duty base.
"Black Kite" specifications and description can be found in the Weapons section.
New pictures from the Zone17 July 2009
Recently a group of stalkers returned from the heart of the Zone and brought some unique photos of Pripyat city, among them there pictures of Prometheus cinema before Emission, Tree of People's Friendship and also a fight between burer and zombified s.t.a.l.k.e.r..
Burer tracked in the Zone13 July 2009
They are rumoured to be nothing more than sick scientific fiction and nobody could prove their existence in real life. Now, however, owing to the group of s.t.a.l.k.e.r. Zveroboy we possess some indisputable facts to prove otherwise - a photo of Burer monster. By quirk of luck Zveroboy survived and preserved the monster snapshots.
So, stay alert and stick to your gun, and before you stick your nose into the Zone, do make sure you learn the information on the new monster in our dedicated section of the web-site.
"Fireball" artifact8 July 2009
Warm and sunny day is a rare occasion in the Zone. Even a summer wind can freeze you here with its cold damp gust and campfire would hardly be a salvation. In such moments the best thing to do is to grab a "Fireball" artifact from your backpack and feel its waves of warmth pierce your body and deliver the nice feeling of summer.
That artifact though is valued not only for its warmth. Find out more about it in the Artifacts section.
Freedom's bad luck6 July 2009
Alarming news came from the base of Freedom faction, where inexplicable activity of pseudodogs forced all inhabitants of the camp, including sick and wounded, get to arms. Everyone in the vicinity of the base is encouraged to assist the s.t.a.l.k.e.r.s.
Let us remind you that the weakness of pseudodog is in his straightforward attacks making him impossible to avoid bullets fired in the head. A couple of long bursts should settle the mutant down.
More details can be found in the in the dedicated Monsters section.
Time for lunch3 July 2009
Great news have just arrived from traders. Deficiency of tinned meat in the Zone is finally over. According to unofficial reports, owing to Duty quade efforts, all the Zone bearings in the vicinity of the Army Warehouse have been eliminated to enable us access to the craved stocks.
