In Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, one of the first weapons you have access to is the Spear of Leonidas. To upgrade it, you’ll need to pursue members of the Eyes of Kosmos. By hunting these cult members down, you’ll be able to accrue Artifact Fragments. Note that not all Eyes of Kosmos members drop Artifact Fragments.

You can check which cult members reward Artifact Fragments by navigating to the pause menu and opening up the Cultist section. Here, you can view what different cult members have on them. If you can’t view a cult member or members, you’ll need to go out and hunt down more of them to expand this section.

Many cult members can be found simply by running through the game’s main campaign, though others you can track down on your own. With a supply of Artifact Fragments on hand, you’ll then need to travel to the Forge of Hephaistos to upgrade the Spear of Leonidas. This Ancient Forge can be found on the east end of your map at the top of Andros Island, as indicated by a gold triangle.

You’ll discover this location naturally as you run through the campaign, and once you discover it, you can fast travel there whenever you wish to upgrade your spear. As stated above, to upgrade the Spear of Leonidas, you’ll need to spend Artifact Fragments, with the cost increasing each time you upgrade.

Right now, the only way we’ve been able to gather Artifact Fragments is by hunting down members of the Eyes of Kosmos. Of course, we’ll be sure to update this guide if we find other ways to get Artifact Fragments in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
