Destiny 2 Season 18 Artifact Mods Revealed

Destiny 2 Season 18 news has started to appear as its start date draws near. Bungie recently confirmed that Arc 3.0 update would be part of Season 18. It also revealed all the new Arc 3.0 abilities for different subclasses.

Now, just days before the big Destiny 2 showcase, Bungie has revealed the entirety of the Destiny 2 Season 18 Artifact mods. The information comes from TWAB. Without further ado, here are all the Destiny 2 Season 18 Artifact mods.

Glaive Loader (Arms)

Overload LMG (Arms): Uninterrupted fire from equipped Machine Guns will stun enemies with a beam that delays energy regeneration and reduces enemy damage output. Strong against Overload Champions.

Unstoppable Pulse Rifles (Arms)

Sword Ammo Scavengers (Legs)

Focusing Strike (Arms): Causing damage with a melee ability grants class ability energy.

Anti-Barrier Auto Rifles (Arms)

Fans would notice immediately that some of the Champion Mods stand out, for better or worse.

For example, Shotguns will have Unstoppable rounds, whereas Sniper Rifles will have Anti-Barrier rounds. While Shotguns are still fine as Unstoppable, Anti-Barrier is more suited to Pulse or Fusion rifles.

Season of the Haunted has some incredible class mods like Classy Restoration, but there's nothing here in particular that stands out yet. Bungie claims that mods like Hype Train Conductor and Trace Evidence will make much more sense when fans have had some time with the Arc 3.0 abilities.

 Thankfully fans won't have to wait much longer to get more info on Arc 3.0 update as the Destiny 2 showcase takes place on 23rd August 2022. It's also the day Season 18 starts, so expect a massive info dump, not to mention a launch day queue.
