Detector "Bear" is an item featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

This last generation anomalous activity detector can be used to locate anomalous formations and has a colour diode panel, which not only indicates the direction of artefacts, but also measures the distance to them. To switch to artefact search mode, open the device's front cover. Unfortunately, the device is programmed with a somewhat outdated list of detectable artefacts.

Overview Edit

Contrary to Anomaly Detectors Anomalous Activity Detectors do not discover anomalies and radiation but artefacts.

To use an Anomalous Activity Detectors the player has to attach the detector to the belt first. Only one anomalous activity detector can be attached to the belt at the same time. Pressing O on the keyboard will put the detector into the player's left hand and activate the artefact search mode.

The Detector "Bear" indicates nearby artefacts by a beeping sound. The frequency of the beeps is an indicator of the distance to the artefact, the closer the artefact is the higher is the frequency.

Main difference to the Detector "Echo" is the colour diode panel that will indicate the direction the artefact can be found.

Upgrades Edit

Upgrading the detector significantly improves the detection range and the number of detected artefact types.

Detector systems upgrade
Detector systems upgrade allows to increase its working radius.
Detection range +5.00 m

Detector systems upgrade
Detector systems upgrade allows to increase its working radius.
Detection range +7.50 m (+5.50 m in v1.4005)

Powerful antennas
New antennas almost double detector coverage thus enhancing its working radius.
Detection range +10.00 m (+8.00 m in v1.4005)
In v1.4005 Professor Kruglov needs data to do this upgrade, the Записи профессора Пироженко. The player automatically aquires this data upon completion of The expedition, when receiving the reward from Professor Pirozhenko.

Firmware update
System patch expands the database by adding new types of artifacts.

Notes Edit

  • In common with all devices of this type, auto-attaches to the belt if there is a free slot available when being picked up.
  • The detector is pretty useless in basic condition, so plan to upgrade it immediately.
  • As upgrading the detection range is very expensive choosing the right technician is crucial before v1.4005. In v1.4005 only Professor Kruglov can upgrade detectors.
  • A reliable trader for the detector is Sakharov.
