The Doughboy is an artifact that can be found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all other S.T.A.L.K.E.R. canon games.

When you hold this mystery of the Zone in your hands, you feel how your skin becomes tougher and less sensitive. You can still shoot through it with a bullet, but it's much more difficult to cut through.
- Inventory description


  • The Doughboy is the Kolobok as seen in the Base Game but has been seriously reduced in effectiveness.
  • Practically impossible to find in the wild.


  • May be found in one stash in Rostok Factory, but obtaining the coordinates for this building site stash is challenging.


  • The "Doughboy" is an essential component in the Artifact Merger synthesis of the Compass artifact.
  • The Encyclopedia reference to this recipe refers to the Kolobok.
  • Fortunately, the Artifact Merger itself, when the recipe has been obtained, correctly references the Doughboy as a requirement.
