The Jellyfish is an artifact that can be found in all three S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

Appearances Edit

Shadow of Chernobyl Edit


Is formed in the Springboard. Forms a weak protective field whose side effect is a slight radiation. The artifact is widespread and not very valuable.
- In-game description

The Jellyfish increases bullet protection by 2%, but has a 5% radiation increase. The Jellyfish isn't particularly useful and considering how common it is, it would work better as an monetary item.


The Jellyfish is an extremely common artifact in gravitational anomalies. Many of these can be found in the Garbage, Agroprom, Army Warehouses, Red Forest, Pripyat and the first part of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. It is also not uncommon to see rookies such as Bandits having a Jellyfish in their inventory.

A Jellyfish is rewarded by Wolf for rescuing Nimble from the Bandits.


The Jellyfish is worth a mere 1000RU by selling it to Sakharov, and common traders buy it for 650RU.

Clear Sky Edit


This gravitational artifact absorbs radioactive particles, reducing the effects of radiation on the body. Very common in the Zone.
- In-game description

The Jellyfish returns in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky. It now provides a -2 in radiation. It is a quite common artifact and a player could use these to cure radiation without the use of vodka and anti-rads, as well as using it along with any artifact producing radiation.


The Jellyfish artifact can be found in gravitational anomalies. One can be found in the first anomaly area the player encounters, during the first mission for Lebedev.

Call of PripyatEdit


This gravitational artifact attracts and absorbs radioactive particles, reducing the effects of radiation on the body. Very common in the Zone and is unofficially used outside the Zone for treating acute radiation sickness in exceptional circumstances.
- In-game description

The Jellyfish returns in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, having the same effects as its Clear Sky rendition.


The Jellyfish spawns commonly in gravitational anomalies. There is a default spawn for the Jellyfish, in the Claw anomaly in Zaton - this artifact is located in a small tunnel beside, near a Springboard, and can be reached by jumping from the "claw" to the tunnel.

A Jellyfish can be found in the Jupiter Underground, in the large dome room. It is to the north-west of the room, in a red container facing the door to the next area, along with two vodkas.

It is commonly sold by Beard after completing the Compass mission.
