This guide is for (Warhammer 40000: Darktide – How to Display Attack Icons). This will explain how to display attack icons in game.
The icons are arranged in the following order: left-click function on (light attacks), middle (heavy attack), and weapon unique key on (right.
Vanguard can be described as a linesman in vermin tide and a damager modifier.
Vanguard attacks are great for dealing damage to horde, but they sometimes lack enough cleave so you can’t control all the aggroed horde mobs effectively. They are a good way to attack until things get too dense. This is where pushes are helpful. This is a good main attack for horde damage, but not as strong as relentless.
Relentless is equivalent to a tank in vermin tide as a damage modifier.
This attack has a higher damage/stagger combo, so it hits many more dudes. It will also give you decent control as long as you can avoid stray swings. A good main attack for horde damages.
Assassin can be used as a damager modifier in vermin tide.
Low cleave, high damage to the headshot. Most commonly on mobile weapons. They are not effective at clearing horde quickly and controlling it. However, you would usually have enough mobility to allow dodges to be valuable tools to keep you from getting overwhelmed. If you don’t have vanguard or relentless, they are good for horde.
Strike down can be used as a damager modifier and is equivalent to the smiter.
This is a good choice for a single target. It usually deals decent damage with a low cleave and some armor penetration. This is mainly used to armour and single enemies. Only use for Horde if there is no other option.
For horde: Vanguard > Relentless > Assassin > Strikedown
Melee bash upon alt fire, usually some kind of stagger-focused attacks. Usually, the rightmost icon. Appears on ranged also.
Acts as a riposte do harm. Usually, the rightmost icon.
Pressing performs a specific action, such as revving a chainsaw—usually, the rightmost icon.
Similar to bash but meant to do damage. Usually, the rightmost icon.
(Psyker to add when I reach a level greater than 1 psyker:)).
The left-click function is the first icon, while the right-click function is the second and third icons.
Hipfire and the type of fire you have during hipfire (semiautomatic, burst fully-automatic or shotgun)
Aim down and determine the type of fire rate that you have during ADS (semiautomatic, burst or fully-automatic shotgun)
Similar to ADS, but for close-range weapons. More accurate but not super precise. (semi-automatic, burst, fully automatic, shotgun)
CIs a change in the ammo shot in one way or another? For example, shotguns it altered the spread of the shells so that they were flatter and more closely spaced. This is ideal for enemies with many faces. Usually, the rightmost icon.
Melee bash upon alt fire, usually some stagger-focused attacks. Usually, the rightmost icon. It also appears in melee.
This provides an additional bright flashlight source—usually, the rightmost icon.
