|“|| You should look near Oakpine. That's that thing growing between the hills, above the gas anomalies. Everyone's been calling it that since some geek identified the bark from that tree as both pine and oak. If you want to search for artifacts there, you'll need good chemical protection. Take lots of ammo, too, because those hills are home to packs and packs of dogs.|
- Stalkers description
The Oakpine is a large mutated tree growing over a valley with chemical and static anomalies. According to a local stalker, it is a mix of a oak and pine trees.
The area is full of gas anomalies, and the area is chemical as well. The surroundings are often full of dogs and/or pseudodogs as well, meaning one should approach the area cautiously. Any chemical artifact can spawn in there. There is by default a Kolobok artifact spawning at the very top of the tree, which can be climbed.
