ARTIFACTS & CHAMPIONS

Artifacts

As you start a Season, you will be introduced to an artifact. Artifacts are seasonal tools that provide new mods that you can unlock over time! In addition, an Artifact also enables an artificial power boost as you continue to earn XP through various activities. 

The types of mods provided by an artifact vary by season. Unlocking additional columns within the artifact allows you to obtain stronger mods that you can utilize for the entire season. 

To acquire the Paradrome Cube Artifact in Season 14, meet with the Eliksni House of Light Kell, Mithrax by starting the seasonal introductory mission, “The Lost Splicer.”

SEASON 14 ARTIFACT

Champions

Champions are special mini-boss combatants that have unique capabilities, often requiring specifically equipped mods in order to combat their abilities. While they are primarily found in Nightfall Strikes and Legendary/Master Lost Sectors, they can also be found in Raids, Story Missions, and in Free Roam on the Moon and on Europa!

    • Fallen: Servitor
    • Hive: Knight
    • Vex: Hobgoblin

Unstoppable Champions

  • Champions that have a large amount of health and will rage attack when being attacked.

HOW TO USE ANTI-CHAMPION MODS

Anti-Barrier Mods

  • Automatically active when mod is applied. 
  • Use this to pierce Barrier Champion Shields. 
  • Anti-Barrier Weapons also pierce shields on HobgoblinsPhalanxes and Hydras

Unstoppable Mods

  • Aim down-sights for a few seconds to create an unstoppable shot. 
  • Unstoppable Weapons also stagger unshielded combatants when used with a slight damage increase to that unstoppable bullet.

Overload Mods

  • Continuously fire your weapon to proc the Overload function.
  • Overload weapons cause disruption, which decreases the damage output of other enemies. 
  • Overload weapons also delay PvP ability regeneration when used against combatants.
Ability Anti-Champion Mods
 
  • Some Seasonal Artifacts provide ability anti-champion mods. 
  • Using a fully charged ability of the correct ability type and element can immediately stun the specified champion type. 

Note: Anti-Champion Weapon Mods can be equipped on arm armour. Ability Mods can be equipped on class items.
