Published on August 18th, 2022
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, a new leak has appeared, revealing the entirety of the Destiny 2 Season 18 Artifact mods. Whether the leak is legit or not remains to be seen though it does come from one of Destiny 2’s most notable leakers. That said, here are all the leaked Artifact mods coming in Destiny 2 Season 18.

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, and if this leak is to be believed, there’s nothing here in particular that stands out. Perhaps, it’s because we haven’t yet seen the new Arc 3.0 abilities in action.Fans should take this leaked Destiny 2 Season 18 artifact mods list with a grain of salt. (Picture: Bungie)
Class mods like Thunderous Retort and Trace Evidence do seem legit though fans should take this entire list of Season 18 artifact mods with a huge grain of salt.
Thankfully fans won’t have to wait much longer to find out 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.
