The Night Star is an artifact that is found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all canon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

This wonderful artifact is formed by the anomaly Trampoline. The use of the artifact demands the neutralization of deadly radiation. Expensive and rare, this artifact is extremely interesting for scientific expeditions and other research activity in the Zone.

  • Not very common across the Zone, but easily obtained from three spawn points.
  • One spawn point is readily accessible south-west of the Gas station in Dark Valley, although the area is patrolled by Cats which tend to increase in number through re-spawns unless culled occasionally.
  • The other spawn points are the pair of Anomaly Fields in Outskirts, both of which have a high probability of spawning a Night Star.
  • All of these points may be infiltrated without armour to minimize suit attrition.
