The Season of the Deep Seasonal Artifact, the NPA Repulsion Regulator, offers players a fresh batch of perks to unlock to further customize their builds for Season 21. In this guide, we’ll list every perk and give you some new information on how things work this time around.
Season of the Deep Seasonal Artifact - NPA Repulsion Regulator
Just like last season, the Seasonal Artifact now works on a perk system that doesn’t require players to slot their unlocks into their armor. Once you buy a perk from the NPA Repulsion Regulator, it’s always active on your character. Only 12 perks can be active at a time, but Bungie introduced a quality-of-life (QOL) feature that allows players to refund single artifact perks instead of having to reset and select all your perks from scratch.
- Perks instead of mods
- Perks are active once unlocked
- No need to slot perks into armor mod slots
- Only 12 perks can be unlocked at once
- Artifact resets are free
- Single selections can be refunded for free
