Our favorite weapons for each class in Darktide

  • November 24, 2022

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s best weapons tend to be the ones based on the setting’s greatest hits—and in a setting where there’s only war, there are a lot of those. Chainaxes, chainswords, force swords, power swords, stubbers, lasguns, autoguns, plasma guns, and, of course, boltguns, the preorder beta for Darktide has let us wrap our Imperial mitts around all of them. These are our favorites so far.

It only hurts when I staff

Fraser Brown, Online Editor: Getting my first force staff was really when the Psyker clicked for me. It’s arguably the toughest class to play, and the nerfs since the last beta continue to sting, but with a staff in hand I felt like I had a clearer idea of my role, and an even more versatile bag of tricks.
