Artifact Guide for Beginners - 0.22g - (+Ammo crate info)

This section is dedicated to the discussion of official contests.

Foreword: If you are not sure about the location, check the map on the pictures.
-----------------
!Note!: some pictures are from older build but the info is still proper.
-----------------
So let's get started!

1. The GEAR!

Since the artifacts are not easy to find and appear usually in anomalies you might need the best gear with isolation. (And some luck because you are an easy target during the process.)

Gear variants for ISOLATION!:

- (Of course you can mix your gear with armor and isolation these are just examples) -

1.1 The artifacts appear after a whispering(?) sound and pulsate for a moment.
Picking up the artifact:
- If you find the artifact get close to it
- you will see a message "Procure artifact"
- then press and HOLD "E" (use) until a message tells you the details of the artifact what u just gathered.

1.2 Using the artifact
Just press the number of the slot. If u get shot don't worry, you'll keep the artifact until the end of the round or until you find a different one. Don't forget that the effect of the artifact is for a limited time. After that there is a cool-down period then you can use the artifact again so use them wisely:)

NOTE: If you use any artifact you will have a shiny green or blue or yellow aura which makes you easy to spot!

2. WOSTOK RADAR STATION
http://i.imgur.com/ko9sR1i.jpg

- The Onyx can be found mostly on the ground floor (or on a computer(?) device - see pics) inside the antenna after electro anomalies.

Using it: http://i.imgur.com/EPIS8xD.jpg

- The Spring can be found at the garage outside where u can see a lots of barrels. Look for it on the ground or on a barrel or on a car. The area is covered by TOXIC gas!

In the garage:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
!!!0.23c - The electro anomaly is disabled at the moment so artifacts don't appear here only inside the antenna or at the gas area!!!

AND thx to "psychocandy" the Spring also can be found here (electro anomaly in the corner):

And there's the little sneaky bastard:)

3. SCHOOL
http://i.imgur.com/as6T92D.jpg

- Larkspur
- I found these artifacts only in the basement which is a tricky place. Sometimes a blue fog appear, it's only toxic :)
http://i.imgur.com/vwVCFwR.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/thLn1Gp.jpg

- Spring, Onyx
I read that maybe u can find artifacts here too. (I didn't) It's on the 2nd floor above the gym. Without proper equipment your legs will broke and u get poisoned too = death in 10-15 seconds.
0.22g - Confirmed!:

4. RUDNYA (village, swamp area)
http://i.imgur.com/EjlWe1t.jpg

- In the middle u will find the swamp and there u can find artifacts on the small islands or in the water or around the hourglass shaped anomalies (those are radioactive if u go inside).
http://i.imgur.com/RGcbXBk.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/xSEku2H.jpg
The water is toxic so don't spend too much time in it:)

- Larkspur (you can find a LOT of them in this map area)
http://i.imgur.com/rH2DAs8.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
!!!0.23c - NOTE!: It SEEMS that the Spring is deleted from this map at least I haven't found any for weeks.

- Spring (I found them in the middle in the water mostly or next to the tractor in the water or around the anomalies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. TARANKOVSKY FORT
http://i.imgur.com/3UWxaTW.jpg

- Inside the main building in the big tunnel ("ground floor") halfway there is a big hole in the ground/building.
Around it (or in it) 2 types of artifact can appear (Onyx, Spring). The vibrating anomaly/air is radioactive!

Other spots are coming... :)

6. CHEMICAL PLANT
http://i.imgur.com/RSWOaKc.jpg

The artifact area can be found on the side, there are a few wagons and a green toxic fog. The grass is high and sometimes it covers the artifacts partly.

7. MAMAYEV KURGAN
http://i.imgur.com/QQxlbUa.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/OuLL5yC.jpg

In the middle there is a huge pit with a fire anomaly. You can use the ledge around it (black soil) but don't spend too much time wandering there 'cause (depending on isolation) it can break your legs and eventually you die (if you don't have a Larkspur or a medkit/bandage). The other "spectacle" is the "Heart of the Kurgan" which is a huge pulsating "organic thing" in an underground pit. The air is radioactive so prepare your antitoxin. :)

- Spring, Onyx (same spot)
This place is "hidden" in the fire anomaly and can be accessed from one side:
go down here: http://i.imgur.com/430u83U.jpg
turn left after this "corner": http://i.imgur.com/wy9P66U.jpg
Aaaand... (a Spring this time): http://i.imgur.com/H7A3DqL.jpg

- Larkspur
This artifact can be found at the "Heart of the Kurgan"
Entrance from a pipe: http://i.imgur.com/i25150y.jpg
Entrance from the other side:

There it is: http://i.imgur.com/ctLWMGb.jpg


So that's it for now. If I missed a location I apologize.
You can find the details of the artifacts on the GAME/INTRODUCTION page.

Just a quick tip how the ammo crates look like (for example Chemical Plant):

Very useful and well written guide! You have my vote :)

Btw The 'Spring' artifact sometimes also spawns in the eletric anomaly in the corner of the Radar map.

Great work! I am ready to go artifact hunting. And I must say, I'm a little jealous of your 109 thousand silver pieces. One day... one day.

"...You can find the details of the artifacts on the GAME/INTRODUCTION page."

(Only Spring, Larkspur and Onyx artifacts are in the game yet.)

BTW on some picture u can see the message about the effect of the artifact when I'm using it.
Onyx: http://i.imgur.com/EPIS8xD.jpg
Larkspur: http://i.imgur.com/f5idXWW.jpg
Spring: http://i.imgur.com/ahNQWfO.jpg

Thanks for your feedback.

Great guide athee! I can get some screenshots of the artifact spawns in the school upstairs if you would like, there are 2 I know of, but there might be a 3rd spot, I'll check that out later today!

Excellent post sir. Thank you.

I have seen Artifacts on the first floor (ground floor) of the school map (center of the gymnasium). I can't recall what it was exactly.


Questions:

1) Why do players automatically/magically heal from any wound but not from poisoning/radiation? This feels both cartoony/arcady and inconsistent.

2) Why can't a player see himself glowing from his POV when an Artifact in his possession is activated? Seems word that an enemy can see me glowing from 100+ feet away but I can't see my own arms glowing?

Players don't automatically heal from wounds. Sure if your limb is in read, you will stop bleeding, however, you will remain injured (as reflected by the yellow indictors)
