They heal significantly more health than other medkits, and also automatically remove radiation poisoning completely. However, unlike Military kits, they are not as effective in stopping blood loss. Scientific Medkits can be found on the bodies of expert stalkers.
Scientific Medkits are found extremely rarely on Stalkers, most commonly found on deceased Ecologist and Monolith stalkers. They can also be purchased from Sakharov after completing some of his quests, as well as from the Barkeep once the Brain Scorcher has been shut down.
Many stashes contain this type of medkit. The most interesting are the following: Hidden chest and Hidden chest (2) in Wild Territory contain several of several of them alongside a few healing items. Secret stash in the pipe, also in Wild Territory, contains two of them in addition to two Meat Chunk artifacts. Radioactive chest in Agroprom contains only one but it is full of anti-rads. Pipe on the East pile and Backpack in the ruins in Garbage contain one alongside many goodies as well as ammunition.
Clear Sky[edit | edit source]
Scientific medkits remain more or less unchanged, though due to their rarity they can often be purchased from Sakharov. Hermit also has 11 scientific medkits for sale. Second trader on Flea Market (the one which sleeps at the day time and wakes up at the night) also may have few scientific medkits to spare.
Call of Pripyat[edit | edit source]
Unlike in previous games, the Scientific kit is not nearly as useful as it once was. Weighing the same as a regular medkit, their only advantage is the ability to purge a significant amount of radiation from the body - just slightly less than an anti-rad. However, their weight makes them much less attractive for anyone with even a Jellyfish artifact, as a more effective Military Medkit could be carried in the same space.
