Lost Artefact

Grineer excavation – Captura by GrayArchon

The Cetus bounties Capture the Grineer Agent, Find the Hidden Artefact, and Reclaim the Stolen Artefact all use the same dialogue for their main stages, and effectively seek to accomplish the same goal: recovering an Orokin artefact that has been excavated by the Grineer. They have been combined together and presented here. The Exterminate and Supply Sabotage stages do not seem to appear on any of these bounties.

Capture the Grineer Agent has the following description: "An item of great importance to the Quills has been taken by the Grineer. Locate the agent who stole it and bring him in." and always ends with Capture. Find the Hidden Artefact is described as "The Grineer have taken an Orokin artefact. Find where they have stashed it." and always ends with Cache Recovery. Reclaim the Stolen Artefact is described as "The Quills say the Grineer have stolen a precious Orokin artefact. Steal it back." and always ends with Resource Theft.

Bounty start

Konzu: "The Quills are at it again. Telling me an important Orokin artefact is being unearthed by the Grineer. The Quills would like this relic back, and I would like to keep the Quills happy. Will you oblige?"

Lotus: "Details about this relic and its whereabouts are scarce. I need you to do some digging."


Lotus: "At my waypoint, you'll find the Commander responsible for taking the relic. Eliminate him."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "With that Commander eliminated, the Quills' relics are much safer. But we still need to find the one they have."

Cache Recovery

Lotus: "Scans indicate the Grineer have a hidden supply cache at this waypoint. Search the area for the relic."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "No sign of the relic. But the Grineer will not be happy about losing those resources."


Lotus: "Quick. The Grineer archaeologist who uncovered the relic is on the move. Bring them in for questioning."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "Interrogation complete. We have new leads to investigate."

Drone Hijack

Lotus: "The Grineer have been using drones to perform subsurface scans of the Plains. Hijack one for me."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "The drone had a complete imprint of the relic. I know what to look for now."


Lotus: "This camp is the command point for Grineer archaeological operations. Shut them down."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "The relic was here, and not long ago. We'll keep hunting."


Lotus: "I've learned of an Ostron miner who was captured by the Grineer. Bring him home."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "Thanks to that miner we have new leads on the relic's location."

Resource Theft

Lotus: "Our latest intel points to the armoured vault at my waypoint. Break in and look for the relic."

(upon completing the stage) Lotus: "Too late. The Grineer moved the relic already."

Bounty end: Capture the Grineer Agent (Capture)

Lotus: "I'm tracking a Grineer agent in possession of the relic. It appears he's trying to get it off the Plains on foot. Capture him, and the relic."

(upon completing the bounty) Konzu: "You captured the relic and the Grineer archaeologist? He and I are going to have an interesting conversation. Dah-dap, Tenno."

Bounty end: Find the Hidden Artefact (Cache Recovery)

Lotus: "They're trying to hide the relic on us in the hopes we'll forget about it and call the search off. Search the caches near my waypoint to recover it."

(upon completing the bounty) Konzu: "Ah, there it is. Beautiful-utz. Sho-lah, Tenno."

Bounty end: Reclaim the Stolen Artefact (Resource Theft)

Lotus: "I located the relic. The Grineer hid it in an armoured vault at my waypoint. Go. Quick."(upon completing the bounty) Konzu: "The relic! You found it! The Quills will be very happy to hear this… or, they would be, if they were capable of emotion. Either way, I'm happy. Bounty paid."
