S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat – How to Run the Game on Steam Deck

So I tried just about everything to get this game to run on my Steam Deck. In the end I gave up. But tonight I was following a guide to run Batman Arkham Asylum which fixed the issues i was having with that game.

Guide to Run the Game on Steam Deck


  • First, you will want to go out to desktop mode.
  • Open the Discover app, and install ProtonUp-QT. Open it.
  • Add Proton GE – Select “Add Version” and download the latest version of Proton-GE.

Finishing up

  • Go back to the Deck UI, aka “Gaming Mode”.
  • Open the properties for Call of Pripyat.
  • Then go to the “Compatibility” tab, and select the Proton-GE version you downloaded.
  • Enjoy the game Stalkers!

If you get any weird rendering artifacts when you get to the menu Change the render mode to Full Dynamic lighting, ie not the directx11 one.
