I've read lots of forums where people say they carry around a whole bunch of extra artifacts they switch around if they get into certain situations. For example, lots of anti-radition artifacts for heavily radiated areas, lots of endurance artifacts for when they have to travel far etc etc.
Call me lazy but i can never be bothered switching between artifacts - I just carry an "all-rounder" set of artifacts. If they could institute a hotkey system so you have different artifact profiles you could save thatd be awesome. For example you could have "Speed" profile where you press a hotkey, you automatically equip your endurance improving artifacts, "bulletproof" profile to switch to your bulletproof cap and bleeding improving artifacts etc etc.
I think it'd make the game more fun if you could press just 1 button before a firefight to prepare yourself for injury and another 1 button press after you finish fighting to speed your looting of corpses
I agree. Right now all I ever carry around are two Bulletproof Cap increasing artifacts, two endurance boosting artifacts, and one reduced radiation artifact and it suits me well for everything. Rarely is there time to switch out artifacts manually to respond to situations that come up. I carry around a couple more Crystal Thorns and Urchins in case I run into a bunch of radiation, but that's about the extent of it. If I could switch it out faster I'd definitely use more artifacts.

yes haveing a set keys (f keys?) that can be set to do one thing each will be a lot of help i.e. you walk in to some rad you press f3 and you take an shot of rad drugs and take the pre set artifacts of and put on so new ones
