Unique; only 1 piece available in the game.
The Altered Insulator is a mission artifact that can be found only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.
Call of PripyatEdit
This used to be an insulator. It has now almost turned into an unstable artifact. It is probably the source of intermittent psy-emissions. Also note that this artifact is the only one which weighs 1.0 kg instead of 0.5 kg like all the others.
Must be acquired during the course of a quest given by Hermann.
It is found on the floor in the North-West train tunnel, detectors will also pick up this artifact. A mobile Psi-Electro anomaly must be circumnavigated prior to finding it. Note that after picking this artifact up: a controller will spawn and will start to take control of Topol's squad, one should ready their weapons for the encounter.
