Freeze targets in their tracks with this sentinel mounted ice-beam.

The Artax is the default weapon of the Taxon Sentinel, which fires a beam that deals Cold b Cold damage and status effect against enemies. This weapon accepts rifle mods.


This sentinel weapon is automatically acquired by acquiring Taxon. Note that this weapon also takes up one Sentinel inventory slot.


This weapon deals Cold b Cold damage.




  • The Artax will inflict guaranteed Cold b Cold status effect on enemies even if the weapon's element has been changed via elemental damage mods.
  • It is highly advised to use a Punch Through mod, as the weapon performs poorly against enemies behind cover. Punch Through also increases the chance of freezing several enemies in the line of fire.
  • Mod TT 20pxContinuous Misery increases the duration of the Cold b Cold status effect.
  • It is advised to build for fire rate and status chance (if using elemental mods that change the element of the weapon as this chance will contribute purely to that element) rather than damage as the Artax has more crowd control capabilities than damage capabilities.
