The Tesla is a rare type of anomaly featured in Call of Pripyat.

General characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Tesla anomaly functions much like an Electro anomaly and deals electric damage, with the difference is that the Tesla is mobile. In that sense, it's the Electro's equivalent of the Comet. It takes the appearance of a fast-moving ball of pure electricity. It can be said the Tesla is the evolved or greater form of an Electro. It's possible that a particularly large or intense Electro anomaly went undisturbed or built up a massive charge for an extensive amount of time and became mobile as a result, either to discharge its built up energy or to 'hunt' for targets or prey.

Unless one is equipped with a few electricity-absorbing artifacts and/or wearing a suit with high electrical protection, simply being scraped by this anomaly reduces the player's health to 10% and outrights kills them if they get struck directly by it.

This anomaly does not spawn any kind of artifact.

Call of Pripyat[edit | edit source]

Known locations[edit | edit source]

Thankfully, teslas are quite rare: only three of them appear overall in the entire game.

Two are present in Yanov, one inside the train car where the Tools for basic work can be found and the other one inside the tunnel where the Intermittent psy-emissions side-mission takes place.

The last one is inside Lab X-8, and only spawns once the player opens the door leading to the room containing A notebook with a description of an experiment.
