Artifacts are the remnants of lost Orokin technology. They are highly sought after by all three factions for their impressive potential to turn the tide of battle. They grant "passive" actions such as health regeneration or extra ammo.

The frame around the Artifact symbolizes its rarity and a number of lines or Roman numerals in the top right corner of each Artifact corresponds to these rarity groups. Rares are gold bordered with a I Roman numeral. Uncommons are silver bordered with a II Roman numeral. Commons are bronze bordered with a III Roman numeral.

Receiving multiple of the same Artifact on an account has no current benefit.


Artifacts may be rewarded through the completion of alerts. An artifact can only be received in this way if the alert indicated that there was a random reward available. You can also get an artifact from the daily Login Rewards.


To equip an artifact:

  1. Navigate to your profile by clicking in the upper left of the main screen.
  2. Select the option DECK at the bottom will display.
  3. Select one of the Artifacts displayed to make it active.

These artifacts can also be displayed by clicking the artifact equipped on the Select Mission screen located directly underneath the Planet information. Clicking on an artifact will select it as the one to use. Only one artifact can be equipped from your deck at a time. Artifacts provide bonuses for all squad members. The effects of artifacts stack when multiple members using the same type of artifact.
