I have conveyed the will of the Monolith to his disciples...

Monolith Fighter's PDA

The Monolith Master (Molitvennik / Молитвенник), while having a randomly generated name, is seemingly one of the figurehead leaders (the other being the Preachers) of the Monolith force in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.


Call of Pripyat[]

This particular expert can be found at the River Port in Pripyat, praying in a tower in the western building. This Monolith expert behaves oddly, praying under such a trance in which he will completely ignore everything around him, which allows one to easily kill him with little effort. He wears a Radiation suit, carries an Eliminator shotgun and a Black Kite as a sidearm, and also holds a PDA that reveals the location of two Monolith stashes and can be sold to Owl for 5000RU.

The Monolith Master makes an appearance in the final mission, Evacuation. He may take part in the firefight at the evac point. He is of little threat to the player due to the limited effective range of his weapon, however he may be a threat should he pick up an assault rifle dropped by a fallen Monolith fighter, and his outfit can withstand high amounts of damage. Should he survive the battle, he will simply return to prayer in the tower, where he will remain until killed.

After his death, Loners and Mercenaries will sometimes appear near the River Port, exploring the area.


  • The Fighter's PDA confirms that, while they are brainwashed, the Monolith are still capable of higher reasoning and even emotions, unlike Zombified stalkers. It is believed that even without the Common Consciousness, the Monolith itself still somehow guides them.
  • The Fighter's name Молитвенник (Molitvennik) translates as "Prayer Book".
