The Pripyat Stadium included a running track, a football field and a full set of bleachers which are still standing. Following the disaster, the large field was used as a helicopter base and a transportation hub for the sick and injured.
The stadium is located in the northern part of Pripyat.
Shadow of ChernobylEdit
The Stadium is the northernmost part of Pripyat in Shadow of Chernobyl. Located directly north to the Palace of Culture, the Stadium is the last area the player has to go through in order to reach the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. As far as gameplay is concerned - there is none outside of a modded game installation. The player arrives at the "Arena" entrance and has a cutscene flyover of the location prior to a level change (irreversible) to the CNPP proper.
The Stadium is a very dangerous area. Most of the center field is full of Whirligigs and Springboards, and a large amount of Pseudogiants as well as other mutants such as Snorks and Rodents can be found in the same area, though most of them will be killed by the anomalies.
The only human resistance here will be three Exoskeleton-clad Monolith experts standing at the other side of the stadium, each holding a RPG-7u. As well, there is another expert holding a Gauss Rifle if the player approaches the buildings by the western side of the stadium. There is also usually a small group of praying Monolith fighters, by the entrance. The three experts have the ability to fire at the player from the other side of the stadium - considering the RPG's high power and damage against players and armors alike, they are dangerous and it is advised to snipe them as soon as possible. Their RPGs along with any rockets left in their inventory can be picked up, allowing the player to use a rare RPG for the final levels.
- The stadium is erroneously located just north to the Palace of Culture. Normally, the Ferris Wheel is just north to the Palace of Culture, whereas the stadium is located further north, directly to the north-east of the amusement park.
- As well, the Chernobyl NPP isn't north to the Stadium and Pripyat. It is actually to the south-east of the city.
