S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Wiki

Looks like the crew died in mid-air and the helicopter simply crashed because there was nobody to fly it. The on-board computer was a little lucky. I wonder if there is anything useful here...Ah, there's something. A map of the area, with certain locations marked. That should come in handy.

Stingray 2: investigate the crash site is a main mission in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.


The Stingray 2 helicopter crashed in the Iron Forest anomaly in Zaton.

The only threat here is a Poltergeist around the crash site. The player is not forced to kill it and one could simply search the wreck then leave the area without firing a single gunshot.

The Hind's computer contains mapping data of the area. This triggers the mission Area Maps.


  • Unlike the rest of the helicopters, searching the wreck is completely optional. However, Area Maps will grant the player discounts from Pilot, making it very useful.
