Welcome to (Warhammer 40000: Darktide – Combat Basics Tips)  An overview of Darktide in Warhammer 40,000.
We’ll go over some fundamentals, and I’ll share what I’ve discovered from playing.

Combat Basics

You are now safe, lads. This guide is from a former hive-ganger and loyal member of the guard. Many people may think this is just a quick way to make money for the top bra*s, but it’s not. We’ll be covering the basics of Tarkan fight.

Dodging is the first.

It sounds easy. It sounds simple.

Second is Blocking

Blocking is easy, I know, but some of you forget to block! We get smacked hard. So, take a moment while you’re cutting through heretics and think! Perhaps a block here can save me from being knocked to the ground.

Third is Crouching

This one is easy enough. This is not a tactical move. There is cover everywhere! Don’t just sit in the middle of the road. If there is a cover, do it! You’ll be safe and close enough to get over the cover with your group.

Fourth is Mantling

Is that the cover? You can get in the thick by putting your hand over it. It’s not difficult, but sometimes it is hard. You don’t want your mates to get you shot.

Fifth is Friendly Fire

Do not shoot the big man. He’s trying his best to keep us alive.

Six Ammo

Be mindful of how much ammo you have and how much your allies have. You can see your allies’ health gauge on the left side, marked by their names. The triple bullet icon will appear and it will change color depending on how your teammates ammo is performing. If they’re in orange, they will need it more than you. When you’re near full, remember, if you share the ammunition, more heretics will fall.

Seven is Grimoire&Scriptures

These things can be hard to find when you’re out on the field. They may cost you little health if you have two grimoires, but the reward may be worth it. However, you should gauge your squad and see if they are all going to fall if you take a hit like that. If this happens, then perhaps you can leave it for another time. On the other hand, the holy books are not harmful and take up only one slot in your war gear.

Eight is teamwork

If you keep your head up and ensure that your squad knows what is happening, you can defeat the heretics easily. This means marking high-value targets and calling out for ammo and med kit. No matter what you hear, you are not a one-man army. You are a team member, so remember them and use them to rid the heretics of their evil ways. You’ll be less effective if you do it independently than if you have a squad to help you.

Nine is Listening

You can identify the mutant by listening to their stomping. If you’re in melee, you can also hear a sound alerting you to an enemy striking from your blind spot. Keep your ears open and not shut them out. You’ll sense things coming before they happen as long as you can hear.

Ten is Sight

Keep an eye on your HuD to see where an enemy is attacking you. A flash will indicate where they are, so look out for it and either shoot them or cover them.
