|“|| Not much is known about these parts. Garry's stories, mostly. He says there's a place here where a huge grapevine grows out of an acid anomaly, as tall as a ten-story building. He might be pulling our leg, but I'd check out that vine for artifacts just in case.|
- Loners' description
Located in the northern part of Pripyat, south to the River Port, the Vine is a tall mutated vine that grown in the courtyard between two apartment buildings. The ground and the crater where the vine grows is full of gas anomalies, and a unique Gas Cloud can be seen floating atop the vine. The anomaly spawns uncommon/rare artifacts.
The anomaly has another area, an apartment located atop the northernmost building. In order to reach it, the player must climb the vine until they reach the apartment. The way to the apartment is dangerous as the player must avoid the lethal Gas Cloud floating above the vine, forcing the player to observe the anomaly's movement in order to safely get past it - the player could also run through it, although this will require sufficient chemical protection (such as that of an antidote) and will deal serious damage to armor. The apartment itself has a occasionally an artefact spawn, and there is also a stash here containing a rare RP-74 along with 300 rounds of ammunition for it. There is also a medkit on a shelf.
The anomaly commonly spawns Meat Chunks and Koloboks. As well, there are slight chances for a Kolobok or a Firefly to spawn inside the apartment (in order for the Veles/Svarog detector to detect the Firefly, the player must be high enough). The Firefly is a default spawn there.
