Warhammer 40K Darktide Class Guide

Warhammer 40K Darktide will be out on 30th November for PC and Xbox consoles; if you love your team-based PvE first-person action games, you’ll no doubt find a ton of replayable fun in Fatshark’s latest.

Here’s everything you need to know about the four main classes you’ll be using in this Warhammer 40K multiplayer game. Each of the four Darktide classes has distinctive weapons and skills that define their playstyle. You can level them up to gain access to their new feats and guns.

 

Veteran

FPS Archetype: Ranged specialist. Kills things from a good distance.

Overview

Apart from shooting things real good from afar, Veterans have Volley Fire as their main skill. They go in a ranged stance for five seconds and designate any nearby non-Ogryn Elite and Specialist enemies as their priority targets. Any ranged damage dealt while in this stance increases by 50%.

The Veteran’s passives include dealing additional 15% damage to weak spots and 40% increased ammo reserve for all ranged weapons. This synergizes well with Volley Fire as they can fire for quite a while.

The Veteran’s Scavenger Hunt Aura gives your allies buffs from killed elites.

The Veteran also has access to Frag Grenades; useful for clearing groups whether taking the offense or just defending. You can’t go wrong with grenades in an FPS. When all else fails, they have a combat shovel to deal damage up-close. We won’t recommend you using this as your main; it’s essentially the default fists in Doom.

Best Weapons: Bolt Gun, Braced Autogun

Best Feats

  • At Arm’s Length: Restores 7.5% toughness per second as long as you are at least 8 meters away from an enemy.
  • Sniper: Deals up to 25% more damage depending on the distance between you and the target.
  • Camo Expert: If you stand still, enemies are significantly less likely to attack you.
  • Bio-Optic Targeting: Volley Fire designates non-Ogryn elites and specialists as priority targets for all players near you.
  • Frag Storm: Grenades cause 2 stacks of bleeding to all enemies hit by them.
  • Counterfire: 25% more weak point damage during the Volley Fire ability. Volley Fire also now designates all Scab Shooters as primary targets, and defeating a marked enemy during Volley Fire resets the duration.

 

Zealot

FPS Archetype: Melee damage. Kills things up-close and fast. Has ranged weapons too, but considered a jack-of-all-trades DPS class but focused on melee.

Overview

The Zealot’s main ability is Chastise the Wicked: they dash towards a targeted enemy, replenishing 50% toughness and get a 25% melee buff in their next melee attack.

The Zealot’s aura is The Emperor’s Will, which raises toughness damage reduction by 7%. To complement that aura, the Zealot’s passive perks focus in increasing their max health, increasing melee attack speed, becoming temporarily invulnerable to any damage that’s considered a killing blow.

The Zealot has Stun Grenades to temporarily halt all enemies within its blast radius. This support tool is perfect for prepping up for a melee kill, or letting your Veteran of Orgryn take the kill. It’s a team game; sharing is caring.

Best Weapons: Crucis Mk II Thunder Hammer, Artemia MKIII Purgation Flamer

Best Feats

  • Enemies Within, Enemies Without: Replenish 5% toughness per second while within five metres of three enemies.
  • Punishment: Attacks that hit three or more enemies grant +30% impact for five seconds. Stacks five times. At max stacks, gain uninterruptible.
  • Benediction: +15% toughness damage reduction (Allies in coherency).
    Thy Wrath Be Swift: You no longer get stunned by enemy melee attacks. When you take damage, gain +20% movement speed for two seconds.
  • Rising Conviction: +4% damage for five seconds on hit. Max stacks five.
  • Purge The Wicked: Chastise The Wicked now has two charges.

 

Orgryn

FPS Archetype: Tank, bruiser. He takes all damage and acts as the team shield.

Overview

The literal meatshields of your squad, the Ogryn will bruise foes and take most of the hits for your team.

The Ogryn’s aura ability will give an additional 10% heavy melee attack damage all around. Other passives include getting an additional 25% melee stagger that activates when you hit an enemy with your attacks, as well as 20% total damage reduction and 20% health damage reduction. Ogryns are immune to interruptions when hit as they’re reviving or assisting allies, so they’re not just pure bruisers and tanks.

Best Weapons: Orox MkII Battle Maul, MK II Slab Shield, Foe-Rend Mk II Ripper Gun

Best Feats

  • Smash ‘Em Good: Replenish 20% toughness on single enemy heavy melee hit.
  • Blood And Thunder: +1 bleed stack on heavy melee hit.
  • Bullfighter: +10% Bull Rush cooldown reduction when you or an ally in coherency kills an elite enemy
  • Bloodthirst: +10% damage resistance per bleeding enemy in melee range. Stacks five times.
  • Raging Bull: +5% damage (next melee hit) on melee hit for each enemy hit with the initial attack.
  • Bull Gore: +2 bleed stacks on enemies hit by Bull Rush.

 

Psyker

FPS Archetype: Support(?), Magic user. Can also buff allies.

Overview

The Psykers use Force-imbued swords and staves as melee/ranged weapons. They also deal damage using Brain Burst; it targets enemies to hit and can be charged up for greater damage.

The Psyker’s Kinetic Presence aura will give the squad 10% additional damage dealt towards elite enemies. The Psyker’s main ability is Psykinetic’s Wrath, which uses 50% of accumulated Peril and staggers enemies in front of them.

The Psyker’s passives gives them a 10% chance to Quell 10% of Peril with every kill and earn Warp Charges for every enemy killed with Brain Burst. For every Warp Charge, the Psyker gets 3% damage buff for 25 seconds; this can stack up to four charges at a time.

Best Weapons: Force Sword, Accatran Mk II Recon Lasgun

Best Feats

  • Warp Absorption: Replenish 10% toughness when you kill an enemy with a Warp attack.
  • Wrack and Ruin: Killing an Elite or Specialist with Brain Burst applies two stacks of Soulblaze to all enemies within three metres of the target.
  • Cerebral Lacerations: Damaging an enemy with your Brain Burst ability causes them to take an additional 15% damage from all non-Warp sources for five seconds.
  • Kinetic Shield: Take between 10% and 33% reduced toughness damage from ranged attacks based on your current number of Warp Charges.
  • Kinetic Flayer: All attacks have a 10% chance on hit to Brain Burst the target. This cannot occur while at critical Peril and has a cooldown of 15 seconds.
  • Ascendant Blaze: Psykinetic’s Wrath expends all Warp Charges and applies Soulblaze to enemies hit based on the number of Warp Charged expended. Enemies killed by your Soulblaze effects from any source have a 10% chance to grant you a Warp Charge.
