Chemical/Activated by contact
|Shadow of Chernobyl|
|Call of Pripyat|
Fruit Punch is a puddle of green, lambent liquid that is easily visible in the poor lighting conditions of underground environment. On contact with creatures or objects such as bolts, a Fruit Punch lights up brightly and emits a sharp hissing sound. It is extremely corrosive, damaging creatures or objects on contact. An object left in a Fruit Punch will eventually dissolve, hinting at the anomaly's acidic nature and possible chemical origin. To players, contact with a Fruit Punch will cause damage consistently over time. The Fruit Punch anomaly is found almost exclusively underground. Also, its devastating against any outfit or armor worn, reducing its strength very, very fast.
Following on its characteristics, it is accepted it is the remnants of a highly radioactive, anomalous vat of some acidic substance that gained the abilities of the Zone. Its composition may be closely related to Sulfuric and Hydrochloric acids, due to its intense damage against both living and non organic matter. Owing to its ability to spawn Artefacts in Shadow of Chernobyl, and not in Clear Sky, it can be said that the Emission which ended Clear Sky's storyline, destabilised the Zone somewhat and dispersed the Gas Anomaly, replacing it with the Fruit Punch instead.
Shadow of ChernobylEdit
Clear Sky and Call of PripyatEdit
- No artifacts are found in this form of chemical anomaly, as Gas has become the one that spawns artifacts in Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.
Shadow of ChernobylEdit
Fruit Punch appears only in two locations: One in the second part of the Agroprom Underground at the bottom of the staircase near a backpack stash, and the second in the Red Forest mine in a couple of collapsed and filled in vents in the floor.
Call of PripyatEdit
This anomaly is met very rarely. One is to be found in the Volkhov AA Complex just beneath feet in a ventilation shaft. And in the Department Store Basement some Fruit Punch and Gas anomalies can be observed.
- In Shadow of Chernobyl, a stash in the Cordon contains a special Leather Jacket that was supposedly left in a Fruit Punch for a brief period. As a result, the jacket has slight healing properties.
- By wearing four Pellicle artifacts you can heal wounds and repair your armor by standing in the Fruit Punch anomaly.
- In the popular fan-made mod Stalker Complete, the Fruit Punch anomaly is recolored blue. This is to reflect the "Slime" in the novel that Stalker is heavily influenced by, Roadside Picnic.
