South Park: The Fractured but Whole Artifacts

A lot of the readers will not be aware of how to utilize the Artifacts properly and where you can easily find them. This guide does both of them for you and explains Artifacts in detail.

How to Get Artifacts

The game features a combat system like the one that is found in Final Fantasy Tactics and other tactical RPGs rather than traditional RPGs.

The equipment system is also very important to stress you might over your opponent and Artifacts are the primary source of might for you.

There are a lot of ways to get Artifacts in the game, one of them is to receive them as rewards for completing missions, another one is to buy them around town as they usually sell for 20 to 40 dollars.

You can also craft Artifacts from recipes that you find across the town by completing objectives or searching for them. New artifact slots are gained as you level up so remember to level up your character.
