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


  • 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.
    • Damage for individual projectiles seem to depend on mods equipped to the Kitgun, including Multishot mods, damage mods, elemental mods and Critical Hit mods.
    • Projectile damage benefits from buff abilities, like RhinoIcon272.png Rhino's Roar130xDark.png Roar, MirageIcon272.png Mirage's Eclipse130xDark.png Eclipse and HarrowIcon272.png Harrow's Covenant130xDark.png Covenant.
    • While a Kitgun may gain 50% extra damage when shot through VoltIcon272.png Volt's ElectricShield130xDark.png Electric Shield, however, damage for the resulting projectile is not affected, meaning it will be equal to those of a shot without Electric Shield.
  • 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.
