A View of Skalka

Skalka, formerly Samorodok, is a small hillside plain found at the base of Stary Yar's ridge.


Adventurous survivors will find Skalka to be nearly devoid of habitation. The plain is dissected west-east by a road leading to Kamensk, with two roads splitting off south to Polesovo and Bird's Lake.

The most notable feature present at Skalka is perhaps the pub situated toward the western side of the field. Two houses can be found in the vicinity, while to the south-east, nestled in the forest, are the remains of a small logging camp.

Bears are known to inhabit the forests around Skalka; survivors hiking in the general area should be cautious of this fact to avoid any potential surprises.

There is evidence of an extensive irrigation system in the area, with drainage pipes found directing what water would have previously flown down the many dry streambeds from the ridge above. These streams would have ultimately deposited into Bird's Lake.



  • Added in the 0.57 update, this location was for a time, named Samorodok ("Nugget" in Russian). It is unknown as to why the developers decided to rename the area.
  • Before 1.0, Skalka was the name of a mountain found to the west of Tisy (roughly in-line with where the mountain of Skalka was in Arma 2). Since 1.0 however this mountain is unnamed and is more accurately described as being a part of Vidy.
