In the Halo Infinite open-world, you can find and discover several collectibles from Spartan Cores to upgrade Master Chief’s abilities, unlockable armor coatings, and audio logs. One of the types of audio logs scattered all over Zeta Halo is Forerunner Artifacts, a collection of recording from the ring’s Monitor — Despondent Pyre’s — mind. Aside from learning more about Halo Infinite lore, scanning a Forerunner Artifact will unlock the “Eld Aficionado” Achievement and if you scanned them all you’ll unlock the “Haruspis” Achievement. Here are the locations of all Forerunner Artifact in Halo Infinite.
Forerunner Artifact I

The first Forerunner Artifact can be located on a plateau southeast of FOB Charlie and northwest of FOB Delta. It’s near the Harpoon Squad distress beacon location, head to the east once you find a small lake.
Forerunner Artifact II
Installation Archive 117649/02:
Just southeast of Outpost Tremonius, the very first Outpost you have to liberate, you can find a small lake. At the northern part, you should be able to see both Forerunner Artifact and a Mjolnir Armory Locker containing Crimson Vettel MKVII Armor Coating.
Forerunner Artifact III

To complete the circle.
Head to the southwest of Ransom Keep. The third Forerunner Artifact is located on top of a mountain. Either Grappleshot like crazy to climb it or grab a Wasp if you’ve unlocked the vehicle for easier access.
Forerunner Artifact IV

A celebration, or a warning?
Just like the previous Forerunner Artifact, this one again can be found on top of a mountain, just northeast of FOB Golf. It’s a comfy ride there if you still have your Wasp. But if you don’t, then try taking a footpath along the northeast side from the Boxer Squad distress beacon.
Forerunner Artifact V

A constant loop.
From FOB Juliet in the Reformation area, head directly to the northeast. Or go northwest from Riven Gate. Again, use your Grappleshot or Wasp to climb the mountain.
Forerunner Artifact VI

Their greatest fear.
The sixth Artifact is on the north side of the third island where the level “Pelican Down” or the Fortune Squad distress beacon is located. You can find it among the hexagonal structures along the cliff’s edge.
Forerunner Artifact VII

Rings inside of Rings.
And the last Halo Infinite Forerunner Artifact location is directly north of FOB November. It is on a mountain on the southeastern corner of the whole Zeta Halo map.
