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

Appearances Edit

Shadow of Chernobyl Edit

Found near the Electro type of anomaly. Quite widespread and inexpensive artifact. But still it is valued among the researchers in the Zone for its qualities.
- In-game description

The Sparkler is a quite common artifact. It gives the player a slight boost in endurance, and as with all endurance-increasing artifacts, increases the damage dealt by electric shocks by 10%, making the user more vulnerable to Electro anomalies.

It is a good artifact to use as it allows the player to run for longer and regenerate more endurance while walking. However, the boost given is slight and it is best replaced with the quite common Flash as soon as the player finds one.

AcquisitionEdit

This artifact can be found in at least three stashes:

The artifact may also be spawned randomly near Electro type anomalies. However, as with all artifacts produced by Electro anomalies, the Sparkler artifact will only be active between the in-game hours of 00:00 and 05:00. During this period, the artifact will be visible to and obtainable by the player. Sparkler artifacts that are dropped onto the ground outside the hours of 00:00 to 05:00 will deactivate shortly afterwards and will not become visible or obtainable again until the next iteration of the designated time period.

PricingEdit

Traders but it for 650RU, and Sakharov buys these for 1000RU.

Clear Sky Edit

DescriptionEdit

A bright representative of the electrostatic family of artifacts, this artifact can smooth fluctuations in electric field density. Emits radiation.
- In-game description

In S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, the Sparkler now gives the player slightly more protection against electric anomalies, at the cost of slightly more radiation (+1). Considering its very low effectiveness, it is best sold to traders than used.

This artifact is a common sight in most Electro anomaly fields.

Call of PripyatEdit

DescriptionEdit

A bright representative of the electrostatic family of artifacts, this artifact can smooth fluctuations in electric field density. Emits radiation.
- In-game description

The Sparkler returns in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, with the same properties as the Clear Sky rendition, giving the player a slight +3 boost in electrical protection, and +1 in radiation, meaning any radiation-absorbing artifact will contain the Sparkler's radiation.

Just like in Clear Sky, the Sparkler has very little effect and is best traded than used.

AcquisitionEdit

The Sparkler spawns by default in the Iron Forest anomaly in Zaton, and can be found in most electrical anomaly fields. Beard sells Sparklers after the player gets the One of Ours achievement.

TriviaEdit

  • In Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat, the model of the artifact is identical to that of the Slime.
