S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Wiki

That son of a bitch is going to regret running away.


Gonta (also called Gaunt in some translations) (Гонта) is a Loner featured only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.


Gonta is the head of the hunters in Zaton, under the leadership of Trapper. His other partners are Garmata, Crab and Danila.


Call of Pripyat[]

He is first encountered in the Skadovsk medic's office with Garmata and Crab, the latter being badly injured. After a quick dialog with Gonta, the player will learn that a Stalker named Magpie was supposed to help them in a Chimera hunt but instead ran away with their loot. Gonta gives player the quest of finding him, and later (if the player tells him about Flint or that Danila was killed by Tremor) he offers help in hunting the wounded Chimera.


Gonta's name is most probably reference to Ivan Gonta, a 18th century cossack rebellion leader.
