Do you have a lot of unused weapons that are just collecting dust in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide? Well, in Patch 4, you can now extract a weapon’s Blessing at the Shrine of Omnissiah.

For the uninitiated, weapons in Darktide have unique traits called Blessings that make them stand out. Crucian Roulette, for example, is a Blessing that increases your critical chance by 2% to 5% for each empty chamber in your weapon.

That said, you can now extract Blessings in Patch 4 so you can place them on your favorite weapons, making them even stronger.

To extract a Blessing, just head over to the Shrine of Omnissiah and select the “Earn Blessing” option. After that, choose the weapon that has the specific Blessing you want to extract then press “Surrender Weapon.” Keep in mind that you will lose the weapon in the process, so you have to be absolutely sure to place the correct one that you’re willing to sacrifice.

Once you’ve extracted a Blessing, you can apply this on any of your favorite weapons by choosing the “Re-Bless” option at the shrine. Since weapons in Darktide can only have a couple of Blessings on them, you must select an existing Blessing you want to replace with the newly extracted one.

This new system allows you to tailor a specific weapon to your playstyle, so it’s a welcome addition indeed.

Patch Notes

  • The Mission Board will see an increase in the number of available Missions that appear. We are increasing them from 12 to 16 available Missions.
  • The balance of difficulty, maps, and Conditions / Side Missions has also been adjusted to account for the increase in availability. Timers for regular Missions on the board have been decreased to a max of 15 minutes.

    • Plasteel:
      • Uprising from 195 to 205
