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 DmgColdSmall64.pngCold damage and status effect against enemies. This weapon accepts rifle mods.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals DmgColdSmall64.pngCold damage.



Acquisition[edit | edit source]

The Artax is automatically acquired upon claiming the Taxon from the Foundry. Note that this weapon also takes up one Sentinel inventory slot.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Artax will inflict guaranteed DmgColdSmall64.pngCold 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 20px.pngContinuous Misery increases the duration of the DmgColdSmall64.pngCold 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. In terms of raw damage output, even with damage boosting mods the Artax damage output is downright terrible, taking several seconds to kill even a single low-level enemy.
