Artifact Archaeologist

Personally retrieved all the Artifacts.

  • To obtain this achievement, you must defeat every Cave and collect their Artifact Of The Clever.png Artifacts. You must personally loot the artifacts from each loot crate and place them within your inventory.
  • When it first appeared, this achievement said, "you personally retrieved all Nine Artifacts!" This suggests a ninth cave (probably the Tek Cave) and artifact will be added to the game by its final release. Interestingly enough, there are 10 total artifacts in the game code. This could mean a tenth cave is also planned; conversely it could mean a tenth cave used to be planned but was dropped for whatever reason.
