Warhammer 40k Chaos Gate Daemonhunters Getting Started Guide

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is upon us and with it comes a whole host of warriors who want to experience this world for the first time. It’s not easy to get into, so we decided to give you loads of tips and tricks for the game. Here’s our Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Gate Daemonhunters getting started guide!

Take care

You must take care of your soldiers.

While permadeath isn’t instantaneous in this game, you only have one potential drop for each soldier, so you need to keep an eye on the health of each of your allies. Don’t get flanked, don’t get outgunned, and make sure you’re always in cover or you’ll quickly lose a whole team of people. The game itself is incredibly difficult and I’ve lost several entire squads of soldiers in battle so don’t do what I did and split up your squad because if you do you’ll find the enemies absolutely knock you down .

Choose Your Demon Hunter Team Wisely

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters allows you to customize your team to get the best combination possible. There are eight classes in the game which we’ll break down for you so you have an idea of ​​what you’re looking for:

Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Gate Demon Hunter Classes:

  • Justicar – A warrior who can charge through obstacles and enemies in your path, and can boost an ally’s action points/willpower so they can do more.
  • Interceptor – An interceptor can teleport between locations, damaging enemies in your path. You can also shoot an enemy at no action cost when another ally does the same.
  • Purgator – A heavy ranged weapon specialist who can blind enemies in an area and cause your allies to do more damage with their ranged attacks.
  • Apothecary – Your typical doctor. They’ll heal you with their battlefield medicine abilities, with Biomancies buffing your allies’ abilities and giving them extra action points.
  • Paladin – An armored warrior capable of using combat-focused abilities
  • Chaplain – Pray and remove debuffs inflicted on you by Bloom and Chaos
  • Librarian – Focuses entirely on psychic attacks.
  • Purifier – Flamethrower! They incinerate those within your reach.

Usually it’s worth having at least one Apothecary class member on your team given the aforementioned difficulty of the game, but the rest of your team is really heavily based on your own personal preferences.

Personally, I used a combination of an Apothecary, Purgator, Vigilante, and Paladin in order to have a decent range of options. It’s always nice to be able to both shoot ranged and have an extremely powerful melee unit on your team, but it’s worth noting that if your melee unit can’t defeat an enemy with a single hit, or if you put them in a situation where other enemies can reach them, you will quickly lose that unit.

Speed ​​is essential, otherwise you will be overwhelmed

It is in your best interest to do what you need to do and then leave the planet where your mission is taking place. The longer you wait, the more chaos blooms in the surroundings and the more you will have to deal with. It could be something like a status effect or a whole horde of enemies, but you’ll really be waiting to dodge whatever comes your way. A lot of times you’ll find yourself overrun by enemies that could make completing the mission incredibly difficult, but in those cases you’ll just have to fend for yourself.

Mission choice matters

There are several missions that crop up while you’re on the main Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Gate Daemonhunters map, all of which have their own objectives. These can range from picking up something from the surface of the planet to simply defeating the enemies waiting for you, but it’s important that you choose your targets wisely. If you choose for example to take over the mission to surround the enemies and defeat them, you will have less time to collect everything you need to get from the surface of the planet. You need to prioritize your targets, make sure it’s what your team needs, and dedicate manpower to it.

Choosing the right Daemonhunters research is the key to success

Similar to X-COM, you can dedicate manpower and resources to your facilities and research for your team members. Your research path is long, with many different branching paths, so it’s important that you specialize in something that will benefit your playstyle. your research specifically to that.

As for your facilities, these can be used to improve your ship’s speed so you can get to missions faster, with some upgrades also allowing you to have more soldiers in your barracks. You can upgrade your Plasma Reactor, Warp Drive, Library, and more. Your ship is part of your arsenal, another weapon you have, so it’s honestly in your best interest to make it incredibly powerful. There’s a huge range here, but we have a separate guide for that which you can find here. Although on a very similar note to the discussion of research and upgrades here…

Choosing Your Daemonhunter Weapons

There are a lot of choices in Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Gate Daemonhunters. There are weapons that range from holy pistols to massive glaives, and you also have the option to upgrade these weapons to your specs.

The thing here is that certain units will do better with certain weapons, so it will do you good to figure out what each class is best at. There are also several different types of armor that can both prevent damage or give you various other benefits. As I noted in our ships and research guide, the game is incredibly difficult and it’s always worth investing in your health bar first and foremost.

Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Gate Daemonhunters is a truly challenging and expansive game, and one that will give even veterans a run for their money. Hopefully, we can make the transition to the game easier for you and help you figure out exactly how you want to play the game.
