The Cake is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

As this artifact protects you from bullets, your metabolism has certain resources drained which causes food cravings. It has a fitting name!
- Inventory description


  • Not yet found in the wild (v1.3003)
  • Sometimes, this artifact may be liberated from dead stalkers.
  • From v1.4000 onwards, the artifact is spawned from Springboard anomalies (see Artifact Spawns)


  • Useful for fire fight protection at any stage of the game (up to v1.4002)
  • Of limited use from v1.4005 as the hunger factor now works against the player, albeit slowly, so that the player will need to eat like a diabetic should several be worn concurrently.
  • Hardly very useful for the player who would prefer useful BP enhancement.


  • The artifact may be created using an Artifact Merger, however, the recipe remains unavailable under normal circumstances.
  • Hunger parameter may actually work in favour of the player (to v1.4002)
  • Hunger parameter clearly works against the player (v1.4005)
