There are 56 Artifacts of 25 different types that can be collected in the game. It is possible to play the game without collecting the artifacts but collecting and selling the artifacts, does make it easier to purchase and upgrade the armour, weapons and other items needed to survive. There is only 1 artifact that the player must collect and that is the Compass Artifact, from Forester, as part of the main game mission. Artifacts spawned by anomalies are usually invisible until a Detector is used by the player, but occasionally an artifact can be seen jumping about in an anomaly field from a distance. There are 3 types of detector that will detect different groups of artifacts. Usually each artifact will be found at a single location but occasionally 2 artifacts can be found at the same single location, or at least within the same anomaly field.


There are 3 different ways that artifacts can be obtained:

  • 1. Directly from an anomaly.
  • 2. From a character in the game (NPC) as part of a mission or as a reward.
  • 3. From a stash or found hidden in a secret location.

When retrieving artifacts from anomalies it will be found that there are varying levels of difficulty depending on many different factors. The following list will give some idea of the types of difficulty encountered when collecting an artifact from an anomaly:

  • Easy - Sometimes an anomaly will throw an artifact out of the anomaly field, or the artifact will roll out of the anomaly field. The player can then just pick up the artifact with no danger or injury.
  • Normal - Some damage and injury will have to be taken to get the artifact. This can vary from a mild injury to almost lethal damage, depending on the anomaly encountered, the type of armour that is worn, the type of protection that is carried and many other factors.
  • Difficult – Occasionally the player will come across an artifact that is really difficult or seems to be impossible to retrieve. This type of situation can be quite frustrating but it can also be an interesting challenge, requiring some thought, planning, experimentation or trial and error. It might appear that these difficult artifacts are a glitch in the game, but they can usually be retrieved eventually.

Some examples of these difficult artifacts are as follows:

  • The artifact is lodged in a rock cleft or on a ledge.
  • The artifact is buried in the ground.
  • The artifact is jammed behind an object.
  • The artifact is lodged inside an object.
  • The artifact is suspended in the air.

Some of these difficult artifacts and how to overcome the problem can be found in the 'Locations of the Artifacts' section.

After the bridge has been captured, the player should talk to Leshiy to get the artifact reward for getting him out of the space anomaly. After the speech on the north side of the bridge, Leshiy should go to the guard tower on the south side of the bridge and remain there for a while, he should then stay for a while in a small camp on the west side of the road leading to Yantar. This should give the player plenty of time to collect the artifact reward from Leshiy but be aware that he will leave the Red Forest at some point. - Eye, Kolobok, Soul.
