Welcome to Warhammer 40000: Darktide – Plasma Gun Gameplay Guide. A mini guide to the Plasma Gun. This is one of the most hated weapons in the game. But, when used correctly, it can be a great weapon.
Plasma Gun for Everyone. Plasma Gun for Everyone.
Plasma guns are often criticized for being too heavy and difficult to use. Plasma gun has a learning element, and people often get it wrong.
It is possible to make it work, but I have played it with a veteran for the last few days. First, players must understand that there are four ways to cool off. Let’s begin with the slowest, and work our way up.
Let’s say the player shoots the Plasma Gun and then switches weapons when it overheats. Okay, so you’ve shot a dozen enemies a dozen times, and now there’s this cooldown. Switch to melee weapons, and you can go to town. The weapon will cool down very slowly while it cools. This is fine if your weapon is powerful and you are skilled in melee. You can whip it out for burst damage and swap it if necessary. The Plasma gun does not need to be cocked, unlike the bolter. It is ready to use as soon as it cools down.
Next, take the weapon out. The weapon will naturally cool down slowly but will take a long time. This is not a method I recommend.
The situational keys are next, and the speed at which one works depends on how much heat remains. You can use the special attack key if the heat is less than half. It will quickly vent the heat in a separate animation. You will want to reload if you have 80-100% heat levels. Reloading takes a longer animation than manual venting and completely dissipates the heat.
The situation will determine when you should reload and when you should switch to a melee weapon, grenades, or another melee weapon. If you are in a swarm, it’s time to grenade or melee. If you have the time and hear threats such as mutants or ogryn Elites, reload your weapon and prepare for the secondary attack. Hit F to delete enemies.
Veteran veterans will want the first two reload perks. These perks include reloading faster when ammo is in reserve and reloading immediately after killing elites. With the plasma gun, it is easy to 1-2-shot elites, sometimes multiple times per row, even with the primary attack left clicked. The plasma gun does not cause enemies to die immediately. Even elites can stagger to the plasma gun, allowing them to take further damage from you and your team.
Big elites are often deleted by volley fire or charged shots.
Plasma gun has their issues, but they can be incredible when specced correctly. It is not a popular choice, and it is not for everyone. But, it can be used in the right hands. It can be deadly.
