Bandage is a type of recovery item appearing in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.


A medicinal gauze that instantly stops light bleeding, but will require more than one to stop severe hemorrhages. It's a good idea to take a number of bandages for excursions into territories where you will face a lot of opposition.


Shadow of Chernobyl[]

In Shadow of Chernobyl, it restores a small amount of health and stops the bleeding of wounds. It is also cheap and quite easy to accumulate a large number of bandages. In fact, you might end up stocking quite a few in the end-game parts.

Clear Sky[]

In Clear Sky, it does not restore health anymore and only stops the bleeding of wounds. Bandages are also less likely to be accumulated here in large amounts as bandages have a base cost of 400 RU, though lessens depending on the trader.

Call of Pripyat[]

In Call of Pripyat it takes time for it to stop bleeding, but it's more effective at doing so.
