The Shell is an artifact that can be found only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

Appearances Edit

Clear SkyEdit

Description Edit

This artifact used to be considered trash, devoid of any useful properties. However, scientists recently discovered that if kept in constant contact with the body, it has an excellent stimulating effect on the nervous system, replenishing the bearer's energy. Emits radiation.
- In-game description

The Shell re-uses the appearance of the Spring from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, and provides a good +4 in endurance, although it also gives a large +3 in radiation, forcing the use of a Wrenched or better to counter the radiation effect. The Shell is a good artifact to allow the player to run on longer distances.

Call of Pripyat Edit

DescriptionEdit

This artifact used to be considered trash, devoid of any useful properties. However, scientists recently discovered that if kept in constant contact with the body, it has an excellent stimulating effect on the nervous system. Emits radiation.
- In-game description

The Shell returns in Call of Pripyat, behaving like its Clear Sky counterpart, although the radiation effect was reduced to +2, making the Jellyfish enough to counter its downside. Considering this, it is an effective artifact to boost the player's endurance, especially when they do not wear a suit like the PSZ-9d Duty armor that can be upgraded to boost endurance as well.

The Shell is one of the artifacts available from Beard's artifacts order, meaning one could sell it for a good price.

AcquisitionEdit

The Shell spawns by default in the Old Service Center in Pripyat, and can be found in electrical anomaly fields, with medium chances.

Trivia Edit

  • This artifact's appearance is clearly a nod and homage to the 'empties' as described in the novella which inspired the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series, 'Roadside Picnic'. They're described as follows:
    "They're just two copper disks the size of a saucer, about a quarter inch thick, with a space of a foot and a half between them. There's nothing else. I mean absolutely nothing, just empty space. You can stick your hand in them, or even your head, if you're so knocked out by the whole thing – just emptiness and more emptiness, thin air. And for all that, of course ,there is some force between them, as I understand it, because you can't press them together, and no one's been able to pull them apart, either."
