The mercenary camp is a location in both S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Clear Sky. It is located in the Army Warehouses.


A very cloudy, off grid location that Mercenaries take advantage of and use as their outpost, basically this location works as a trap for both stalkers and mutants. This area serves as a good vantage point for the mercs, being able to see long distances, even in the evening due to a large spotlight.

Shadow of ChernobylEdit

This is the location where Ara and his group are hiding. The quest Find the enhanced rifle that is giving by Voronin will take the player to this location.

Clear SkyEdit

In the events of Clear Sky game, the outpost belongs to the Freedom faction. They defended this gate which enters the Red Forest. This location served them as a regular outpost and cover, led by Raven.



  • In the events of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky, the gates that are in the end of this outpost lead to the Red Forest location.
  • In earlier versions of Shadow of Chernobyl, the gate led to the subsequently cut location of Dead City.
  • There is always a backup NPC that is hiding behind a tree in the camp, mainly to fool the player if looting the Sniper TRs-301 inside the camp.
  • There is no safe stashbox at the camp in Shadow of Chernobyl, which is unusual for an outpost.
