"Santa has arrived at the facility!"
Announcement Broadcast

Santa is an original anomaly that can only be seen during the Christmas event. He is not playable and spawns randomly around the facility. He wears the usual Santa Claus modern outfit.

Description & Behavior

Santa will enter Site-76 ranging from 30 minutes - 1 hour after he left the facility. When Santa appears at the site, a [SYSTEM] message in the chat will say: "Santa has arrived into the Facility!" After approximately 10 minutes, Santa will leave the facility and a [SYSTEM] message in the chat will say: "Santa has left the Facility."

Santa will randomly wander around the facility to give players red Presents. These gifts can contain items, weapons, or anomalous items; examples such as the Lump of Coal, Panacea, or on rarer occasions, heavy weapons. Items obtained from Santa are not permanent, and they will lose it if they die or leave. Players who receive the Lump of Coal will earn the Naughty List badge and will be able to find the coal from the Maintenance Tunnels. Players with a high bounty will have a higher chance of receiving the Lump of Coal in their gift.

Santa is similar to the Eye Pods; whenever a player is near him, he will bond with the player and follow them. He will later then leave after several moments, and then quickly run away. Santa appears to not take damage from weapons, nor other hostile anomalies.
