This achievement is annoyingly unclear and suffers from the game only counting the completion of the challenge for the person who selects it. This may not be the only way, but here's what we did:

My co-op partner and I made sure that the person who was hosting the match (Player 1) also selected the Adventure Besties challenge. Then that same person collected all of the artifacts while their partner (Player 2) killed enemies, carried a lamp for warmth, and killed animals to replenish food while Player 1 was inside a crypt.

***Make sure that Player 1 picks up all of the artifacts. This WILL NOT count if you try to combine Player 1 and Player 2's artifacts together and think you have enough.***

Player 1 will need to collect 5 medium artifacts AND 5 large artifacts. NOT a combination of 5 or 10. You need at least 5 of each. Medium artifacts are found in crypts that have the codices, and Large artifacts are found in crypts that have sarcophagi.

**UPDATE: A couple of folks have confirmed that they got the achievement by collecting a total of 5 medium and large artifacts (which is what the description implies). Some have said that it works with a combination of 5, others got 5 of the same type. I think this is how the achievement is supposed to work, but it did not unlock this way for my co-op partner and me. The people who have reported that this has worked have all collected at least 2 MEDIUM artifacts. Some collected 2 mediums and 3 larges, some collected 5 mediums. People who only collected 1 medium and 4 larges have reported that they did NOT get the achievement. I think the most important thing is that the host selects the challenge and then collects all of the artifacts himself/herself, but if it does not unlock for you with a total of 5 (including at least 2 mediums), you can try getting 5 of each like we did.**

Unfortunately, you can't tell what is in a crypt until you get about halfway into it. Because the spawns are random, you may end up needing to visit more than 10 crypts in your playthrough. My co-op partner and I had to find 14 before we had 5 of each artifact because the game kept spawning in sarcophagi instead of codices.

After Player 1 has collected 5 large and 5 medium artifacts, you need to light a signal fire, and you both need to extract successfully.

Both Player 1 and Player 2 will get the achievement after extraction if you did this correctly.

Hope this helps those of you having trouble. Let me know if anything needs clarification!

***Thanks to everyone who has posted their results with this. Thanks particularly to Lt Davo who noticed the pattern that people who got at least 2 medium artifacts tended to get the achievement. If more info becomes available or if they patch this, please do leave comments, and I will try to keep this up to date.***
