The Shell is an uncommon artifact featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

Appearances Edit

Clear SkyEdit

Description Edit

This artifact used to be considered trash, devoid of any useful properties. However, scientists recently discovered that if kept in constant contact with the body, it has an excellent stimulating effect on the nervous system, replenishing the bearer's energy. Emits radiation.
- In-game description

The Shell provides a good +4 in endurance, although it also gives a large +3 in radiation, forcing the use of a Wrenched or better to counter the radiation effect. The Shell is a good artifact to allow the player to run on longer distances.

Call of Pripyat Edit

DescriptionEdit

This artifact used to be considered trash, devoid of any useful properties. However, scientists recently discovered that if kept in constant contact with the body, it has an excellent stimulating effect on the nervous system. Emits radiation.
- In-game description

The Shell returns in Call of Pripyat, behaving like its Clear Sky counterpart, although the radiation effect was reduced to +2, making the Jellyfish enough to counter its downside. Considering this, it is an effective artifact to boost the player's endurance, especially when they do not wear a suit like the PSZ-9d Duty armor that can be upgraded to boost endurance as well.

The Shell is also part of Beard's artifact orders, meaning one could sell it for a good price. It is generally a good artifact to sell once the rarer Snowflake becomes available, although its usefulness is quite prominent in the early to mid stages of the game.

AcquisitionEdit

The Shell may be found in electrical anomaly fields; the Old Service Center in Pripyat spawns one by default.
