Dauntless Cells – What are Cells and what can you do with them?

The last part of creating your perfect setup is usually finding the right Cells. These little items can be socketed into weapons, armours, or lanterns, to provide a Perk. These perks, in turn, help turn your ordinary Slayer into a powerhouse, and they’re really important when fine-tuning your playstyle. That’s why we’ve put together everything you need to know about Cells and Perks.

Dauntless Cells

Cells can be acquired by opening cores, achieving mastery, as a rare drop from Behemoths, and even from your Hunt Pass progression. You can get Uncommon, Rare, and Epic Cells, each of which offers a different level of perk, with Uncommon being the weakest, and Epic being the strongest. Each of these Cells comes in a different flavour, and you can only slot them into the appropriate socket. So, choosing your armour often comes down to which Cells you want to be using. Here are all of the Cells you need to know, and which category they belong to.
