Extreme Archaeology significantly increases the explosive radius and placement range for Expedition encounters in maps, but limits your number of explosives to 1. This creates a single large explosion that makes all remnants in the area apply to all enemies in the area, saving time planning and placing the explosives.

Expedition Monsters in your Maps spawn with an additional 10% of Life missing: This mod will prevent the use of modifiers requiring enemies to be on full life like Ambush and Assassinate.


As of version 3.22.0 it is located near the center-right of the Atlas passive skill tree inside the Expedition cluster containing Ancient Writings and Distinguished Demolitionist.
