The artifacts are collectible items in Temple Run 2.
During gameplay, they appear as a treasure chest hang in the air, just like a powerup pickup. Collect them to claim the contents after ending the current run.
- Note that, picking up an artifact chest does not count as "collecting a powerup" in objectives and challenges.
Each artifact worths some coins or gems. You can redeem these rewards at the artifact screen.
All artifacts fall in specific sets. By completing a set of artifacts, you will unlock a corresponding hat.
Some of the artifacts are always available, others can only be found during holidays or in special maps.
