The Cult of Kosmos act as the main antagonists in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, controlling Ancient Greece from behind the scenes. In this guide we'll be walking you through how to find the Cult of Kosmos and what you'll need to identify and hunt down specific cultist member.

How to Find Cultists in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Just below, you can see the main 'Cultists' menu in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. This menu will become available partway through the main story of the game, when Alexios/Kassandra identify the Cult as their main threat. It's up to you to unmask every single Cultist on this list.
In the screenshot just above, you’ll see that there are branching paths in the Cult of Kosmos. There are seven branches of the Cult in total, which we’ll list just below:
- The Eyes of Kosmos.
- The Silver Vein.
- The Delian League.
- The Peloponnesian League.
- Gods of the Aegean Sea.
- Worshippers of the Bloodline.
- The Heroes of the Cult.
All of these seven branches of the Cult are comprised of a single authority figure, with lieutenants underneath them. It’s your job as either Kassandra or Alexios to work your way up this ladder, unmasking and assassinating lieutenants, to in turn unmask and assassinate the leader that they’re working for.
But, this is no easy feat. You have to unmask every single member of the Cult of Kosmos, as none of them are given to you for free. Check out the masked Cultist just above, for example, who operates in the Eyes of Kosmos league. We know that this Cultist operates a quarry in Attika, and if we want to uncover their identity, we’re going to help out the people of the nearby region.
If you're cutting through Assassin's Creed Odyssey, we've got everything you'd ever need at our Walkthrough here. Whether it's combat, stealth or finding the best items, we can provide.
Scroll over to the map of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and we can see that there’s a marble quarry in eastern Attika. It’s possible that the Cultist is operating out of this marble quarry, and so in this case, you’d have to go to said quarry, and complete all the location objetives, which include killing the Captain, freeing prisoners, looting treasure, and finding the Ainigmata Ostraka. Complete all of these, and the Cultist will be unveiled to you.
Revealing a Cultist's Identity
Once you’ve compiled all the information you can muster on a single Cultist of Kosmos, you’ll have to head back to the Cultists menu. From here, you have to manually go into the Cultist’s entry on the page, and hold X/A to uncover their true identity. After this, a marker will appear on your map of a golden mask, revealing the location of the Cultist, so you can take them out and eliminate them entirely.
