|A View of Skalisty Island|
General[edit | edit source]
Skalisty Island rarely sees traffic except for new players unfamiliar with Chernarus -- who may or may not be lost. Despite its inaccessibility (you currently have to swim to get there), the island actually has a small settlement complete with a Boathouse on the southwest side overlooking the coastline of the mainland. It has a few buildings with some loot and a water pump for travelers who make it all the way there. The island also has a communications tower and a lighthouse, both which you can climb, as well as a wrecked ship close to the beach. Thanks to its remoteness, the island has little infected activity. Due to little player activity on the island, the buildings spawn more loot than usually expected.
There is a small rusted ship on the east side of the island. It spawns no loot and is split in half making it almost impossible to access the inside.
As for loot, the island spawns a plethora of civilian rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Players can easily find rifles such as a Mosin and B95 at the castle closest to Chernarus. The lighthouse on the peninsula behind the island spawns multiple weapons at the top. Ammo is more uncommon than weapons though so be sure to thoroughly search the small houses off to the side of the island.
