Pax Seeker is an Arcane Enhancement for kitguns that, on headshot kill, releases homing projectiles that inflicts 50% DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture and 50% DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.

Can be bought from Rude Zuud for ReputationBlackx64.png 10,000 per arcane upon reaching the rank of Old Mate with Solaris United. Like all arcanes, Pax arcanes come fully built at Rank 0.


  • In order to activate the effect of Pax Seeker, the enemy must be headshot killed by the Kitgun, and not any damage-over-time status effect such as DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash.
  • These homing projectiles deal a considerable amount of damage, which can help in killing a group of enemies.
  • A projectile can be controlled using IvaraIcon272.png Ivara's Navigator130xDark.png Navigator.
  • Kills made by these projectiles count as Pistol kills, which can be used to complete Nightwave Tasks.
    • The projectiles also aims for the head, which can be used for Riven Challenges and Nightwave Tasks.
  • Homing projectiles can target and damage enemies across the material plane and Rift Plane.


  • As Pax Seeker's projectiles always aim for the head, it greatly benefits from HarrowIcon272.png Harrow's Covenant130xDark.png Covenant, which grants a x4 critical chance bonus for headshots (additive 200% flat critical chance at maximum).
    • However, headshot kills by Pax Seeker's projectiles won't count for Mod TT 20px.png Lasting Covenant.
    • HarrowIcon272.png Harrow's Thurible130xDark.png Thurible also gains energy from projectiles' kills as if they're non-headshot.


Patch History[]

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)


We’ve adjusted the values of older Arcanes with the goal of making lower rank Arcanes more viable, and more desirable while collecting as a result. In short, there are three stats that each Arcane tends to have (speaking generally) -- for example, a percentage chance, a stat buff, and the duration of the buff.

Certain Arcanes increase all of these stats per rank (making them scale exponentially), but we are changing it so that only one stat is affected by rank (making it scale linearly). The other stats will now be at the max-rank value regardless of the Arcane Rank, thereby buffing lower-rank Arcanes as a result.

Pax Seeker

On Headshot Kill: 100% (was 25%) chance for 1/4 projectiles burst from the enemy and seek the heads of nearby enemies.

  • Now that the chance is guaranteed, the new description is “On Headshot Kill: 1/4 projectiles burst from the enemy and seek the heads of nearby enemies.”

  • Fixed Pax Seeker not triggering on equipped Primary Kitguns.

Update 28.1 (2020-07-08)

  • Fixed Pax Seeker bolts appearing default Energy colour for Clients.

Hotfix 24.1.2 (2018-11-29)
