Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces the Sharpshooter

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces the Sharpshooter

Fatshark's capability to deliver an exciting gameplay experience no matter what class you choose in its games is quite noteworthy. It's one of the major interesting points of Vermintide and Vermintide 2, and it seems that Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will also share it. We recently could have a preview of one of the archetype/specialization combinations that players will be able to choose in the game. The Zealot: Preacher is a melee beast capable of crushing enemies with heavy hammers and burning them to ashes with a flamethrower. The more damage they take, the more damage they can deal, making the class a high-risk/high-reward option to choose in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. But the game offers much more, and now we can learn about another class in a new video.

Developer Fatshark brings the Veteran: Sharpshooter into the spotlight and reveals the unmatched capabilities of a ranged combat specialist. This agent of the Inquisition seems to have an Imperial Guard background and is a seasoned soldier with a knack for lasguns and autoguns. His uncanny accuracy allows him to deliver lethal shots from a distance. The close combat options of this class are very limited and might save you in a pinch, but if you decide to take this path you better keep yourself at range or look for the support of some teammates. The Veteran: Sharpshooter can carry more ammo than any other class, so you won't have to worry too much about running out of resources.



As you can see, the two classes revealed so far offer you two completely different gameplay styles. There are more to come. Fatshark has confirmed that Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will feature one specialization per archetype at launch and more will be coming later. The game looks like a very solid choice for those looking to immerse themselves in the dark universe created by Games Workshop.
