Kill the poltergeist is an optional, non-repeatable side mission featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

- Sidorovich, Mission briefing


  • After exterminating various infestations of mutants, usually at a distance from Sid's bunker and frequently potentially lethal; Sidorovich offers what appears to be a 'milk run'.


  • The Poltergeist is, of course, the Pyrogeist near the Death Truck in north Cordon.
  • The Pyrogeist will not respawn.


  • Bringing a Sawn-off Double-barrel Shotgun or something similar is an advantage, as is maintaining the ability to run.
  • The apparent anomaly with the mission duration is quite genuine and equally inexplicable.
