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 claiming the Taxon Sentinel.


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 rather than damage as the Artax has more crowd control capabilities than damage capabilities.



  • The Artax is possibly named as a portmanteau of "Arctic" and "Taxon."
  • As of Hotfix 19.10.1 Artax Riven Mods are no longer obtainable from Sorties. Between the introduction and the removal were only 5 days and therefore the chance of getting an Artax Riven within this period was very tiny. Hence the amount of Artax Rivens in the game is now extremely limited.
  • Artax was also the name of Atreyu's horse in The Neverending Story.
